As the cost of display hardware falls so the number of public display networks being deployed is increasing rapidly. While these networks have traditionally taken the form of digital signage used for advertising and information there is increasing interest in the vision of "open display networks" [8]. A key component of any open display network is an(More)
Scheduling content onto pervasive displays is a complex problem. Researchers have identified an array of potential requirements that can influence scheduling decisions, but the relative importance of these different requirements varies across deployments, with context, and over time. In this paper we describe the design and implementation of a lottery-based(More)
Users are increasingly accessing content through a complex device eco-system involving both public and private screens. Traditional research into display eco-systems has focused on developing new multi-screen applications and on techniques for understanding how interactions and activities such as shopping flow across screens and devices. There has been(More)
While traditional displays networks are typically closed systems, researchers are now beginning to explore the notion of open display networks in which content can be obtained from a wide range of sources. Open display networks have very different properties to closed networks as they need to deal with multiple management domains and conflicting content and(More)
In 2006, we reported lessons from two years experience with pervasive displays [4]. These experiences helped shape the development of the e-Campus platform that now includes 50 networked displays in a variety of residential, office and public spaces at Lancaster University. e-Campus has been running continuously as a research testbed for more than ten years(More)
The increasing reach of the Internet of Things (IoT) is leading to a world rich in sensors [3] that can be used to support <i>physical analytics</i> -- analogous to web analytics but targeted at user interactions with physical devices in the real-world (e.g. [2]). In contrast to web analytics, physical analytics systems typically only provide data relating(More)
