Sammanfattning : It is estimated that the number of devices connected to the Internet will be 50 billion by 2020. How should a not-so-tech-savvy end user be able to discover and directly interact with a myriad of connected things in an intuitive and comfortable manner? Up until now, smartphones have shown potential for managing the Internet of Things (IoT) environments, but we cannot rely on that technology. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Flexible electronic systems such as wearable devices, sensors and electronic skin require power sources and sensing units that are mechanically robust, operational at low bending radius, and environmentally friendly. Recently, there has been an enormous interest in active materials such as thin film semiconductors, conductive polymers, and ion-electron conductors. LÄS MER
3. Designing for Intercorporeality : An Interaction Design Approach to Technology-Supported Movement Learning
Sammanfattning : Technology-supported movement learning has emerged as an area with ample possibilities within Human Computer Interaction and Interaction Design, as interactive technology can help people to develop and improve sensorimotor competencies. To date, design research has largely focused on technology development and on supporting individual learning experiences. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : This thesis provides insights on complex assembly issues and presents pragmatic models, methods, measurable parameters and prototypes that can be used to support operators in complex assembly. Assembly systems are complex partly because of a high degree of product variety and the strategy of having mass-customised products. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Introduction: Epilepsy and Parkinson’s disease (PD) are conditions where management would benefit greatly from monitoring symptoms over longer time periods in natural everyday environments instead of only intermittent assessments at clinics. Wearable technology with built-in sensors such as accelerometers and gyroscopes, could allow continuous and objective long-term monitoring of movement patterns. LÄS MER
