Do you know how much your neighbor’s electricity consumption is compared to yours? What if she consumes half of the electricity that you consume? What if your neighbor could give you some tips? These are the question we try to answer with Wattitude, an Android app our student colleagues in IT2901 are making this spring.

A smart jacket developed by SINTEF and NTNU as a collaborative effort between the EU R&D projects SOCIETIES and MIRROR is making headlines.The smart jacket is built to assist rescue workers in the event of a crisis such as a fire, an earthquake or similar.
NTNU students in collaboration with SINTEF ICT Health Informatics Group prototype smartwear that can talk to Facebook. The smartwear can provide collaboration support for those who cannot use touch-screen smartphones, for instance rescuers, firefighters or people with reduced physical abilities. The jacket can wirelessly read your Facebook updates, vibrate the skin of your neck, in this way getting your attention to check the LCD screen attached to your sleeve.
NTNU students in collaboration with SINTEF ICT health informatics group use social media to detect and manage falls among elderly people. The solution allows family and neighbors to participate in fall detection and help dispatching.
We have the pleasure to have another group from course IT2901 taking their programming project with us. Group 11 will work on our Space Manager and will help us with creating an Android version of the module. We are also planning to add some community features into the tool.
We are proud to announce that we have a new student! Joakim has actually worked on UbiCollab-related issues for some time now. But now he has decided to do his master thesis on the topic of Collaboration Instance Manager. We welcome him! Alfredo is Joakim’s supervisor.
Group 2 from course IT 2901 in programming have started their work on a first version of UbiHome. The group is implementing a server that will give users the possibility to upload applications and follow applications developed or uploaded by other users. An Android client is also being developed.
This summer both Yngvar and Waqas delivered their theses and are now free men. We congratulate both of them and wish them good luck with new challenges. Their diploma thesis will be available soon.
Simone and Babak have been co-authoring a paper which is accepted for publication at the AmI 2010 conference in Málaga, Spain.
Simone Mora did an excellent defense of his thesis at Bergamo University in Italy, scoring 10/10 on his defense and a total score of 103/110 for his Master’s degree. Congratulations from the UbiCollab Team! I will update his thesis page with a PDF. The new addition documents the user experiments he did with users at SINTEF and NTNU and is related to resource discovery and discovery gestures.
