Abstract

We present a deployment tool atop a document centric infrastructure to support end users in constructing and extending smart object systems. This tool allows an ordinary individuals to deploy, extend and control smart object systems in a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) fashion. We have implemented two versions of this tool using different user interfaces. The first version provides a graphical user interface for the deployment tasks whereas the second version provides a tangible user interface. The tangible tool allows end users to deploy and control artefacts and applications only by manipulating RFID cards that comes with the artefacts and the applications. An underlying infrastructure provides the foundation for the end user deployment utilizing a profile based artefact framework for smart objects and a task oriented application framework for pervasive applications. A runtime component, FedNet associates the application to corresponding smart objects. In this demo, we will showcase this tool atop our infrastructure to construct two everyday smart object systems with a broad goal of identifying the applicability and usability of such tool in our everyday life.
