Extending Mobile Devices with Spatially Arranged Gateways to Pervasive Services

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review

Discovery and interaction with services is as much a user interface problem as a networking problem. In this paper we introduce a system in which mobile devices are seamlessly extended with Gateways to services in their environment. The gateways are realized as widgets that are arranged around the edge of the mobile device’s user interface to indicate the direction of discovered services, thus providing the user with an overview of interaction opportunities. The gateways also afford direct access to services integrate with the device’s interface, for example supporting drag-and-drop of objects to a gateway and through the gateway to the corresponding service.
