Autonomic Composition of Ubiquitous Multimedia Applications in REACHES.
Proc. 7th Int. ACM Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Multimedia (MUM2008), December 3-5, 2008, Umeĺ, Sweden, 105-108.
In this paper, we describe our work in developing an autonomic system that supports the composition of ubiquitous applications at run-time. The applications are composed and adapted accordingly to user preferences and user-provided criteria. We have designed a proof-of-concept prototype of the system and an example multimedia application. The application is a multimedia player which users can control on a large screen using the mobile phone’s UI as the controller. We present a user evaluation of the prototype’s feasibility and also determine what feedback and control mechanisms are required by the end-users. We report initial analysis of how user satisfaction and comfort level are affected by the autonomy of the system.
