  • Title: UBI-SERV Project - Home
    Descriptive info: .. UBI-SERV Project.. Home.. Research.. Events.. Publications.. Our Team.. Blog.. Contact Us.. Welcome to UBI-SERV project's web site!.. Project Title:.. User-centric Design of Ubiquitous Welfare and Safety Services and Supporting Technologies for China and Finland (CHI-FIN UBI-SERV).. Sites of the research:.. 1.. Department of Communications and Networking.. ,.. Aalto University.. 2.. Peking University.. 3.. Fudan University and Nordic Centre of Fudan Unversity.. The objective of this research project is to investigate user centric designed services and technology for ubiquitous computing (e.. g.. services applying networked, embedded computers) in Welfare Technology and Services (WTS).. As such, WTS is a very large research area covering two major frontiers of Health and Public Safety referring to (i) health management, health monitoring and medication reminders as well as (ii) public safety and security services.. In our project we apply user centric design approach to pinpoint from this  ...   resources and scientific expertise of our research consortium.. The project modules are: User-centric Design, Public Safety, Glocal (global/local) Networking Technologies and Services and Remote Tele-care Technologies and Services.. The research targets were further developed in Start-up Workshop (and its preliminary investigations) by following the user-centered design philosophy.. This approach aims to develop truly usable, cost-effective WTS for both China and Finland by taking care of the user, service, environment, regulatory and technology levels simultaneously.. Note that during the course of this project,.. Helsinki University of Technology.. (TKK) has merged with.. Helsinki School of Economics.. and.. University of Art and Design Helsinki.. to form the new Aalto University.. The acronym.. TKK.. is still often used as a shorthand for.. Aalto University School of Science and Technology.. CHI-FIN UBI-SERV is part of the.. Academy of Finland.. MOTIVE.. research programme.. Created and Maintained by UBI-SERV group..

  • Title: Research - UBI-SERV Project
    Descriptive info: UBI-SERV Work Package Structure.. WP1: User-Centric Design.. Our user-centred design approach for each of the service is characterised by qualitative and ethnographic research methods (e.. focus groups, observations, and diaries).. The Start-up Workshop and requirements meetings conducted in TKK aim to specify usability requirements that will be user centrically tested in the research and development processes.. After the requirements meetings the project will focus on intermediate research modules to be carried out in China and in Finland that are constrained by the findings of the Start-up Workshop and requirements meeting.. Generally, the work of the human-centric group in this project will focus on three main themes:.. Exploring user needs for the services with emphasis on neighbour- and location-awareness e.. communication needs, needs for networking, and needs for feeling safe.. Evaluating usability (i.. e.. usability testing, heuristic evaluation) of the system architectures at various stages of the development process.. Evaluating acceptability and the quality of service experienced by the target user groups.. WP2: Glocal (Global and Local) Technologies and Services.. Communications technology advances and associated service developments are creating new service ecosystem that is at the same time local and global in nature and can be called as Glocal Service Ecosystem (GSE).. Services in GSE simultaneously address local nature but admit global mobility and are in some form available anytime and anywhere.. From research perspective the applied approach in the project can be called as Human Centered Mobile Computing (HCMC).. This is a research sub-field of the Human Centered Computing in which mobile aspect is in a key role.. This work package covers the following aspects:.. Glocal services and requirements set by human centric design.. Characterization of glocal service types and analysis of the corresponding human-centric requirements.. Existing and evolving technological enablers for glocal services.. Recent technological advances that will greatly impact to the available enablers in localized service provision.. Notably, the introduction of Home Base Station (HBS of femtocells) concept will create a bridge between centralized management and distributed mobile computing.. Future evolution towards ubiquitous HCMC.. The technology push is on its limits and turning to  ...   set the baseline user and system requirements for the underlying communications technologies that enable services for public PSS purposes.. Other technical bodies (e.. , TISPAN, 3GPP, ITU, etc.. ).. would take into account these requirements when specifying communications architectures, protocols and services for PSS use cases.. WP4: Remote Tele-Care Technologies and Services.. In the Work Package 4, we research the remote health-monitoring network, terminals and services in the follow-ing functions:.. The monitoring system is to prevent people from the disease/harm by giving a warning/advice in time.. Using the wireless sensor to track the routine activities of daily life – how do they do physical exercise and what habits do they have and so on – What are the measures to obtain early information?.. Assist user’s life for chronic and geriatric care that can produce savings in health personnel costs without increasing risks and even improving the overall quality of the treatment.. This function is becoming increasingly important both in China and in Finland.. Measur-ing of bio-signals and activity-signals at same time gives basic information for the services.. The objective of this function is to create the supporting, techno-economically balanced service realiza-tion as boarded by our user centric design methodology and boarder conditions (addressed in WP 1).. Finally, in case of critical situations, life saving services and technology is an important function we are going to research.. This function requires the application to work with paramedics giving the first aid to the people in need.. Whenever accidence happens, the person may be in critical situation by health or some other reason.. The question is if his/her doctors, relatives and friends can be awarded immediately through the system operation? Can all the associated health-care personnel get all the information they need? This requires a well-organized communications and information processing.. WP5: Security, Reliability, Ethics and Safety.. All the research functions of the tele-care module relate to SRES questions that we will pay special attention in our focus group gatherings striving to keep a close touch with service operators and potential device manufacturers and governmental authorities during the whole project time..
