    TEI 2019, Proceedings of the Thirteenth International Conference on Tangible, Embedded and Embodied Interaction (Tempe, Arizona, USA). ACM, NY, USA. In Press.

    There seems to be a danger to carelessly replace routine tasks in homes through automation with IoT-technology. But since routines such as watering houseplants also have positive influences on inhabitants’ wellbeing, they should be transformed through carefully performed designs. To this end, an attempt to use technology for augmenting a set of houseplants’ non-verbal communication capabilities is presented. First, we describe in detail how implicit interactions have been designed to support inhabitants in watering their plants through meaningful interactions. Then, we report on a field study …

  • Theodor: A Step Towards Smart Home Applications with Electronic Noses
    Chi Tai Dang, Andreas Seiderer, Elisabeth André,
    iWOAR 2018, Proceedings of the 5th international Workshop on Sensor-based Activity Recognition and Interaction (Berlin, Germany). ACM, NY, USA.

    This paper presents preliminary results of the ongoing project TheOdor which explores the potential of electronic noses that make use of commodity gas sensors (MOS, MEMS) for applications in the smarthome, for example to classify human activities based on the odors that activities generate. We describe the system and its components and report on classification results from validation experiments…

  • Acceptance of Autonomy and Cloud in the Smart Home and Concerns
    Chi Tai Dang, Elisabeth André,
    MuC 2018, Mensch und Computer 2018 – Tagungsband (Dresden, Germany). Gesellschaft für Informatik e.V., Bonn.

    This paper presents the results of an initial survey that examines the acceptance of autonomous behavior and cloud dependency in smarthomes. In addition, this paper presents concerns on both topics. Depending on whether someone already lives in a smarthome or not, the acceptance changes…

  • Exploring Opportunistic Ambient Notifications in the Smart Home to Enhance Quality of Live

    Fullpaper, ICOST 2017, Proceedings of the 15th International Conference On Smart homes and health Telematics (Paris, France), Springer.

    Smart home technology became more and more widespread within recent years. They aim to make life easier and taking over unwanted tasks. In traditional homes, it is often not clear whether all windows and doors of a house are closed before inhabitants leave the home or go to sleep. However, this can be easily addressed by smart homes. We present a system based on opportunistically located ambient lights that assist inhabitants of a smart home in answering this question…

  • Tabletop Interaction Beyond Touch – Interaction On, Above, Around, and Across Tabletop Surfaces
    Chi Tai Dang
    Dissertation 2016, Augsburg University (Germany)

    Interactive or digital tabletops are table-like embedded computing systems, which provide a large unified display and input surface. Touch input and tangible artifacts on the tabletop surface represent the most prominent, thus, most often implemented input mechanisms. However, digital tabletops provide much more potential for interaction techniques…

  • A Framework for the Development of Multi-Display Environment Applications Supporting Interactive Real-Time Portals
    Chi-Tai Dang, Elisabeth André
    Proceedings of the 6th Conference on Engineering Interactive Computing Systems (EICS 2014)
    Advances in multi-touch enabled interactive tabletops led to many commercially available products and were increasingly deployed at places beyond research labs, for example at exhibitions, retail stores, or showrooms. At the same time, small multi-touch devices, such as tablets or smartphones, became prevalent in our daily life. When considering both trends, occasions and scenarios where tabletop systems and mobile devices form a coupled interaction space are expected to become increasingly widespread.
