Abstract: 

In this project, we intend to explore the possibility of using multi-touch and other sensors capabilities of mobile devices to interact with "web-based" applications for public displays. At this time, most of interactive public displays systems (except those based on multi-touch screens) enable remote and indirect interaction through various mechanisms such as SMS, QR codes, email, mobile applications, etc.. However, there are few that allow direct manipulation through a mobile device.

Objectives: 
  • Design, development and validation of an architecture for public displays that support interaction via mobile devices;
  • Integration solution on open-source project PuReWidgets (http://purewidgets.org).
Activities: 

March 2014 - July 2014
