  1. 1. The Significance of Things: Affective User-Artefact relations

    Författare :Viktor Hjort af Ornäs; Viktor Hiort af Ornäs; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; User experience; User-centred design; Significant consequences; Significant use; Significant things; User-centred desig; Technology; Teknik; User Centred Product Design; Användarcentrerad produktdesign;

    Sammanfattning : Products help people act, but also thrill, excite, and elicit fear, joy and anger. Artefacts are a natural part of people’s everyday lives, sometimes associated with values, dreams and aspirations. While traditional user-centred approaches have focused on efficiency and effectiveness of use, injury prevention etc. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Liv genom tingen : Människor, föremål och extrema situationer

    Författare :Margrit Wettstein; Gösta Arvastson; Svante Lindqvist; Lotten Gustafsson Reinius; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Ethnology; Etnologi; Ethnology; etnologi;

    Sammanfattning : Material culture has several meanings and has played a significant role in ethnological research. Humans are surrounded by objects, many of which are so commonplace that they are barely noticeable. Others are charged with emotions and stories that account for something important. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Realizing Emergent Configurations in the Internet of Things

    Författare :Fahed Alkhabbas; Romina Spalazzese; Paul Davidsson; Flavio Oquendo; Malmö universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Internet of Things; Emergent Configurations; Goal-driven IoT Systems; Automated Configuration of IoT environments; Software Architectures; Self-adaptive Systems.;

    Sammanfattning : The Internet of Things (IoT) is a fast-spreading technology that enables new types of services in several domains such as transportation, health, and building automation.
