HICSS Socialware Tutorial January 2007Geotemporal aware, mobile networking systems: The example of SmartCampus
1. Conceptual foundation: P3 systems
2. The Smart Campus Testbed
3. Semi-structured interviews with prospective users: methods
P3 systems involve the use of mobile devicesthat record location and time, and collect thisinformation for use in applications.

We can now locate within about five feet, show the location on a real-time map, and identify a place name.
First field site to cover entire design space:
• NJIT’s ActiveCampus Explorer (modified from UCSD version), which enables map based “buddy tracking”, location aware instant messaging, and digital graffiti;
• SmartCampus WiKi which provides context aware editable web pages about NJIT places, people and organizations according to location and season via an analysis of wireless access point used and DNS lookup;
• GeoMemory an in situ multi-media and location aware capture tool for mobile phones; and
• CampusMesh a location-aware friend-of-friend system for social introductions and reminders.
Jane is working on a group project for her graduate course in Management. The group has been communicating by email but has a number of unresolved issues. It’s an hour before class, and she wonders if they might already be on campus.
They have all made each other “buddies” for the Campus Explorer System, so when she looks, she sees that two out of three are on campus already- one in the Library and one in the parking lot. She Instant Messages them and they agree to meet in Starbucks.
After talking for a half hour, they have a question for the professor; Jane checks and he is visibly in his office, so they go to talk to him. By the time class starts they have been able to improve their plans a lot.
Are there places on campus where you would not like your exact location to be known, even to your buddies?
Are there times of the day or week when you think you would want to turn off this tracking system, or that it should be turned off for the whole campus?
