Usability Evaluation Framework for Ubiquitous Computing Device
Continuous technological innovation is entailing that living environments be equipped with products that improve the quality of daily life. Unluckily, the adopted solutions do not always represent an adequate support and people continue to execute repetitive tasks that software infrastructures could perform automatically. This is partially due to the fact that the existent technological solutions cannot be always integrated in a coherent communication platform, as they use proprietary protocols and ad hoc implementations not easily reusable. This paper proposes an extensible ubiquitous architecture for networked virtualized devices in smart living environments. The aim is realizing ubiquitous applications and integrating networked devices through an architecture that hides their complexity and heterogeneity. Several intelligence techniques have been integrated for offering a smart environment through the use of automatic learning techniques.
