The advancement of ubiquitous computing technologies has greatly improved the availability of digital resources in the real world. Here, the authors investigate mobile interaction with tagged, everyday objects and associated information that's based on the Internet of things and its technologies. Their framework for integrating Web services and mobile(More)
Although mobile services can be used ubiquitously, their employment and the interaction with them are still restricted by the constraints of mobile devices. In order to facilitate and leverage mobile interaction with services, we present a generic framework that combines semantic Web service technology and physical mobile interaction. This interaction(More)
Mobile devices are more and more used for mobile interactions with things, places and people in the real world. However, so far no studies have discussed which interaction techniques are preferred by users in different contexts. This paper presents an experimental comparison of four different physical mobile interaction techniques: touching, pointing,(More)
Large public displays have become pervasive in our everyday lives, but up to now, they are mostly information screens without any interaction possibilities. Users tend to forget what they saw relatively fast after leaving such a display. In this paper, we present a new interaction technique for transferring information from a public display onto a personal(More)
In current authoring tools for location-aware applications the designer typically places trigger zones onto a map of the target environment and associates these with events and media assets. However, studies of deployed experiences have shown that the characteristics of the usually invisible ubiquitous computing infrastructure, especially limited coverage(More)
The advancement of Ubicomp technologies leverages mobile interaction with physical objects and facilitates ubiquitous access to information and services. This provides new opportunities for mobile interaction with the real world, but also creates new challenges regarding the complexity of mobile applications , their interaction design and usability.

This paper reports on a methodological experiment, which was carried out in two large collaborative research projects targeted at innovative products. Video material was produced in order to visualize the project vision and solution ideas, and this video material was used in focus group discussions. The paper describes the process, the experiences gained(More)
Near Field Communication (NFC) can facilitate mobile interaction with everyday objects, associated digital information and ubiquitous services. Despite the simplicity of the touch-like interaction between mobile devices and tagged physical objects, most people are still unfamiliar with this physical interaction, resulting in various usability problems. In(More)
The interaction between mobile devices and physical objects in the real world is gaining more and more attention as it provides a natural and intuitive way to request services associated with real world objects. We currently see several approaches for the provision of such services. Most of them are proprietary, designed for a special application area or(More)
