Built-In Device Orientation Sensors for Ad-Hoc Pairing and Spatial Awareness

Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference abstract for conferenceResearch

Mobile devices are equipped with multiple sensors. The ubiquity of these sensors is key in their ability to support in-the-wild application and use. Building on the ubiquity we look at how we can use this existing sensing infrastructure combined with user mediation to support ad-hoc sharing with nearby devices. In particular, the paper proposes a technique for exploiting the built-in compass in mobile de- vices to aid the process of pairing them for ad-hoc sharing in a variety of proxemic arrangements and F-formations.
