ROBIN: activity based robot management system

Wilde, Adriana G., Brügger, Pascal, Hirsbrunner, Béat and Hadorn, Benjamin (2010) ROBIN: activity based robot management system At International Conference on User Science and Engineering 2010 (i-USEr 2010), Malaysia. 13 - 15 Dec 2010. 6 pp.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


This paper examines the design and implementation of a system to support firefighting exercises based on tools and ideas of pervasive computing. Through this development a range of technologies and conceptual tools were used, such as sensors, wireless communication, and the programming framework uMove; as well as context-awareness, situation management, and activity detection. In this development, the notion of implicit human-computer interaction was of particular relevance. The use of a programming framework for interaction through motion was central, and this implementation is one of its proofs of concept, as it presented opportunities to improve it and recommendations to adapt it for future applications.
