The infiltration term in the building energy balance equation is one of the least understood and most difficult to model. For many residential buildings, which have an energy performance dominated by the envelope, it can be one of the most important terms. There are numerous airflow models; however, these are not combined with whole-building energy(More)
Adaptive information systems typically exploit knowledge about the user’s interests, preferences, goals etc. to determine what should be presented to the user and how this presentation should take place. When dealing with mobile users, however, information about their motions—the places visited, the duration of stays, average velocity etc.—can be(More)
We present Calisto, a service-oriented information kiosk system for public places, like museums or hotel lobbies. Calisto supports collaboration between multiple users. They can connect their mobile devices to the large public terminal and share interesting facts and media contents via intuitive multimodal interaction. The novel contribution of our work is(More)
We describe a Web 3.0 interaction system where the mobile user scenario is combined with a touchscreenbased collaborative terminal. Multiple users should be able to easily organize their information/knowledge space (which is ontology-based) and share information with others. We implemented a MP3 and video player interface for the physical iPod Touch (or(More)

A set of validation test cases are presented for comparing the results of mid-level detailed groundcoupled heat transfer models typically used with whole-building energy simulation software to verified detailed numerical ground-coupled heat transfer models. A new validation methodology development is also presented that uses an analytical solution for(More)
The increasing complexity and flexibility in future production environments leads to huge amounts of data and the difficulty to analyze them in order to react to short-termed events. To tackle this challenge, an electronic performance board and editor was developed that allows users to create dashboards with proper visualizations of production data. This(More)
The digital workflow of the conception of a newspaper or a magazine involves several tasks. While professional solutions like QuarkXpress or Adobe InDesign combined with InCopy only offer the possibility for one person to modify a document at the same time, we have developed a concept in form of a prototype that will help journalists and the editorial staff(More)
What does situation-adaptive technology mean for car drivers and how can it improve their lives? Why is multimodal interaction in the cockpit a critical ingredient? This contribution summarizes several important technological results of the three-year research project SiAM, which investigated these questions. Motivated by the story of an urban commuter, we(More)
