MSCS3302: HCI in Ubiquitous Computing

Credits 3
With touch-screen smartphones, smart watches, tablets, and other computing devices moving from labs to consumer use, ubiquitous computing represents the forefront of HCI innovation. The advent of affordable sensors and interaction devices and wireless mobile computing devices has created boundless opportunities for ubiquitous computing applications that can transform our lives. The course begins with a detailed review of current HCI advances in ubiquitous computing. It then concentrates on the HCI issues around the design and development of ubiquitous computing devices and systems and will develop ubiquitous computing concepts and interactions in real-world applications and devices.
