Interests and expertise
- Mobile and pervasive computing
- Intelligent, context-aware applications, personal assistants and software agents
- Systematic software reuse, component-based software engineering (CBSE), and generative product-line reuse
- Software process, metrics, tools and models including agile, open source and crowd-sourcing approaches
Mobility and Pervasive Computing
The Mobility Research Center recognizes that
increasingly powerful mobile systems, such as mobile phones, in-vehicle and hand-held travel guidance systems
are becoming the dominant mechanisms for Internet access and personalized computing. These devices are changing the way we work, play,
learn, shop and collaborate.
Our research is intrinsically multi-disciplinary and experimental, combining novel work in technology,
usability, behavior, business and policy. We are exploring how people interact,
prototyping mobile context-aware, location-aware and mobile social networking applications, and
will investigate a variety of security, privacy and identity management issues.
Projects sponsored by Nokia and Motorola.
SmartSpaces: Context-aware software agents
The SmartSpaces project combines intelligent software agents,
mobile appliances and robots in a sensor-rich environment to provide context-aware personal assistance to individuals and teams.
We have investigated the use of intelligent agents and locationing technologies such as RFID and acoustic crickets in a context-aware home entertainment scenario.
We are now looking at an eldercare scenario, using a combination of vision, RFID and speech, to simplify the
ordering and management of food and medications by elders who wish to extend their period of independent living at home.
The project makes extensive use of, and contribution to, open source software, notably the JADE agent system, as well as Lucene, Ant, JBOSS and WEKA, and is closely affiliated with the Center for Open Source Investigation (COSI).
Projects sponsored by Panasonic and SAP, and previously by HP and NSF/USDOT.
Systematic software reuse
The current focus is on studies of highly agile component and generative reuse approaches,
which integrate systematic (product-line) reuse with agile/iterative, open-source and crowd sourcing approaches.
Project supported by Carnegie Mellon's Software Industry Center (SWIC), funded by Sloan, and by TopCoder Inc.
