Project Name: Smart Composite Human-Computer Interfaces

SmarcoS project aims to help users of
interconnected embedded systems by ensuring their interusability.
Nowadays, many products connect with web services (media players,
refrigerators). This distributed computing is becoming the norm in
embedded systems. SmarcoS allows devices and services to communicate
in UI level terms and symbols, exchange context information, user
actions, and semantic data. It allows applications to follow the
user's actions, predict needs and react appropriately to unexpected
The use cases would be constructed around three complementary domains:
attentive personal systems, interusable devices and complex systems
control. Several pilots would be carried out to implement the use
cases. SmarcoS is planning to run a large trial based around the time
of a major public event and is currently considering London around the
time of the 2012 Olympics. Along the project, several smaller
prototypes will be implemented.
Our results will be applicable to all embedded systems that interact
with their users, which is a substantial fraction of today's market.
