Locate : EB5. 533 Presenter : Jinyoung Choi   Title : Trajectories of Depression: Unobtrusive Monitoring of Depressive States by means of Smartphone Mobility Traces Analysis Author : Luca Canzian, Mirco Musolesi   Abstract :  One of the most interesting applications of mobile sensing is monitoring of individual behavior, especially in the area of mental health care. Most existing systems require an interaction with the device, for example they may require the user to input his/her mood state at regular intervals. In this paper we seek to answer whether mobile phones can be used to unobtrusively monitor individuals affected by depressive mood disorders by analyzing only their mobility patterns from GPS traces. In order to get ground-truth measurements, we have developed a smartphone application that periodically collects the locations of the users and the answers to daily questionnaires that ...

Date : 2016. 04. 13(Wed) 2:00 P.M. Locate : EB5. 533 Presenter : Sungyup Lee   Title : RIOT OS: Towards an OS for the Internet of Things Author : Emmanuel Baccelli and Oliver Hahm, Mesut Gunes and Matthias Wahlisch Freie , Thomas C. Schmidt   Abstract : The Internet of Things (IoT) is characterized by heterogeneous devices. They range from very lightweight sensors powered by 8-bit microcontrollers (MCUs) to devices equipped with more powerful, but energy-efficient 32-bit processors. Neither a traditional operating system (OS) currently running on Internet hosts, nor typical OS for sensor networks are capable to fulfill the diverse requirements of such a wide range of devices. To leverage the IoT, redundant development should be avoided and maintenance costs should be reduced. In this paper we revisit the requirements for an OS in the IoT. We introduce RIOT OS, an OS that explicitly considers devices with minimal resources but ... Continue reading →

Monitoring Building Door Events using Barometer Sensor in Smartphones

by Jinse Kwon on 2016-03-04 16:28:02

Date : 2016. 03. 09 (Wed) 11:00 A.M. Locate : EB5. 533 Presenter : Jinse Kwon   Title : Monitoring Building Door Events using Barometer Sensor in Smartphones Author : Muchen Wu, Parth H. Pathak, Prasant Mohapatra   Abstract : Building security systems are commonly deployed to detect intrusion and burglary in home and business structures. Such systems can accurately detect door open/close events, but their high-cost of installation and maintenance makes them unsuitable for certain building monitoring applications, such as times of high/low entrance traffic, estimating building occupancy, etc. In this paper, we show that barometer sensors found in latest smartphones can directly detect the building door open/close events anywhere inside an insulated building. The sudden pressure change observed by barometers is sufficient to detect events even in presence of user mobility (e.g. climbing stairs). We study various characteristics of ... Continue reading →

Designing Content-driven Intelligent Notification Mechanisms for Mobile Applications

by Jemin Lee on 2015-11-26 21:21:36

Date : 2015. 11. 30. (Mon.) 10:00 A.M. Locate : EB5. 533 Presenter : Jemin Lee   Title: Designing Content-driven Intelligent Notification Mechanisms for Mobile Applications Author: Abhinav Mehrotra, Mirco Musolesi, Robert Hendley, Veljko Pejovic Abstract An increasing number of notifications demanding the smartphone user's attention, often arrive at an inappropriate moment, or carry irrelevant content. In this paper we present a study of mobile user interruptibility with respect to notification content, its sender, and the context in which a notification is received. In a real-world study we collect around 70,000 instances of notifications from 35 users. We group notifications according to the applications that initiated them, and the social relationship between the sender and the receiver. Then, by considering both content and context information, such as the current activity of a user, we discuss the design of classifiers for learning ... Continue reading →

InterruptMe: Designing Intelligent Prompting Mechanisms for Pervasive Applications

by Jinyoung Choi on 2015-11-16 16:07:36

Date : 2015. 11. 23. (Mon) 10:00 A.M. Locate : EB5. 533 Presenter : Jinyoung Choi   Title : InterruptMe: Designing Intelligent Prompting Mechanisms for Pervasive Applications Author : Veljko Pejovic  University of Birmingham, United Kingdom   Abstract   The mobile phone represents a unique platform for interactive applications that can harness the opportunity of an immediate contact with a user in order to increase the impact of the delivered information. However, this accessibility does not necessarily translate to reachability, as recipients might refuse an initiated contact or disfavor a message that comes in an inappropriate moment. In this paper we seek to answer whether, and how, suitable moments for interruption can be identified and utilized in a mobile system. We gather and analyze a real-world smartphone data trace and show that users’ broader context, including their activity, location, time of day, emotions and ... Continue reading →

Non-obstructive Room-level Locating System in Home Environments ...

by Jinse Kwon on 2015-10-12 07:00:40

Date : 2015. 10. 12 (Mon) 10:00 A.M. Locate : EB5. 533 Presenter : Jinse Kwon   Title : Non-obstructive Room-level Locating System in Home Environments using Activity Fingerprints from Smartwatch Author : Lee Seungwoo   Abstract   Many smart home applications, such as monitoring for the elderly and home automation, require location information for individual occupants. Several techniques have been proposed for tracking occupants in a home environment. However, the current techniques do not provide a seamless in-home locating system owing to the occupants’ devicefree movement and the lack of cost-effective infrastructure for home location tracking. In this paper, we propose a home occupant tracking system that uses a smartphone and an off-the-shelf smartwatch without additional infrastructure. In our system, activity fingerprints are automatically generated from the microphone and the inertial sensors of the smartwatch, and ... Continue reading →

Step-by-Step Detection of Personally Collocated Mobile Devices

by Jemin Lee on 2015-08-27 15:59:36

Date : 2015. 08. 28. (Friday) 10:30 A.M. Locate : EB5. 533 Presenter : Jemin Lee  Title : Step-by-Step Detection of Personally Collocated Mobile Devices   Author : A. Srivastava, J. Gummeson, M. Baker, and K.-H. Kim Abstract Many people now carry multiple mobile devices on a daily basis. Wearables, smartphones, tablets, and laptops all have their different advantages, but collectively they can increase a user’s device management burden. Management problems include leaving a device behind accidentally, receiving notifications on the wrong device, and failing to secure all of the devices as needed. Reducing this burden requires detecting which of a user’s devices are “personally collocated” – those devices he currently wears, carries, or has under his immediate physical control. We present a lightweight method to detect personal collocation by comparing accelerometer-based footstep ... Continue reading →
