Smart Objects for Attentive Agents

Christopher E. Peters, Simon Dobbyn, Brian MacNamee, Carol O'Sullivan
2003 International Conference in Central Europe on Computer Graphics and Visualization  
Unlike previous approaches, our model also contains information for directing the attention of agents when interacting with objects.  ...  Our framework is based on the concept of Smart Objects and provides agents with pre-programmed interaction information for the automatic generation of animations.  ...  • Coordination of multiple agents provides object-centric agent interactions. • An easy-to-use plug-in for modelling smart objects.  ...

Egocentric interaction as a tool for designing ambient ecologies—The case of the easy ADL ecology

Dipak Surie, Lars-Erik Janlert, Thomas Pederson, Dilip Roy
2012 Pervasive and Mobile Computing  
So far, many proposed approaches have adhered to a devicecentric stance when including virtual objects into the ambient ecology; a stance inherited from existing interaction paradigms for mobile and stationary  ...  We show how this interaction paradigm has influenced both the conception and implementation of the easy ADL ecology, comprising of smart objects, a personal activity-centric middleware attempting to simplify  ...  For a smart object,|p| is always 1 since the smart object has to be a physical object.  ...
