Ubiquitous availability of cellular network and cheap mobile phones have made them promising sensing platforms for various application domains including healthcare, environment, and astronomy among others. However, existing mobile phone platforms, including even smartphones, provide limited in-built sensing capabilities and lack standard interfaces to(More)
The archaic centralized software systems, currently used to manage buildings, make it hard to incorporate advances in sensing technology and user-level applications, and present hurdles for experimental validation of open research in building information technology. Motivated by this, we --- a transnational collaboration of researchers engaged in(More)
A key issue in mobile and ambient computing is the effort required to rapidly prototype and evaluate user interfaces and applications. Existing technologies for these tasks suffer either from low fidelity (e.g. paper prototypes, mental walkthroughs) or effectively require a near full-scale deployment. We propose an approach using immersive video with(More)
—Content sharing and social networking are two activities that users now routinely engage in on a range of connected devices. However users have to face arcane configuration panels for setting up connectivity, heterogeneity in the human-machine interaction models, differences in devices' capabilities and a profusion of tools/services/applications to perform(More)
Cardio-Vascular Diseases (CVD) are one of the major healthcare problems across the world, causing deaths for nearly 17 million people every year. With more than 80% of all CVD cases occurring in developing countries, it is a big challenge that needs immediate attention. Specifically for India, World Health Organization (WHO) and many other organizations(More)
