Fischer, Carl and Gellersen, Hans and Guinard, Dominique and Oppenheim, Matthew (2007) RelateGateways: Using Spatial Context to Identify and Interact with Pervasive Services. In: Demo @ EuroSSC 2007, 2007-10-232007-10-25, Lake District, UK.
Our everyday life is surrounded by pervasive services. While on the run we should be able to use the mobile devices we carry to interact with these services. Yet, a number of studies have shown that it is difficult for users to identify available services in an unknown context. RelateGateways extends the desktop of a mobile device with a new kind of widget: the gateways, arranged around the edge of the screen, pointing towards the co-located services. Identified services can be consumed in a consistent manner by dragging-and-dropping an object on the gateway.
