Hide and Not Easy to Seek: A Hybrid Weaving Strategy for Context-Aware Service Provision in a Smart Home

Abstract

Weaving computing technologies into a living environment without interfering with natural interactions is nontrivial. In this paper, we have proposed utilizing ambient-intelligence compliant object (AICO) to facilitate context-aware service provision in a smart home; furthermore, a hybrid weaving strategy, called Hide and Not Easy to Seek, is proposed for designing the weaving layer of each AICO and for popularizing ubiquitous computing. Seven weaving guidelines which combine seamless and seamful designs are learned from our actual instrumentation of a living lab and continuous cooperation with specialists from various domains. By following the proposed guidelines, our expectation is that people will be able to use the weaved technologies more naturally to accomplish everyday tasks.
