HCI and Ubiquitous Computing



Theme 3 Our research in HCI and ubiquitous computing, include development of mobile Apps, mixed reality, robotics and Internet of Things (IoT), and fog/edge computing. From HCI perspective, the team has expertise in novel interactive technologies - merging physical and digital interactions to explore new ways of living, playing and working. In addition, conducting interdisciplinary research, employing ethnography, user-centred design, iterative prototyping, and participatory design approach, and deploying and studying them 'in the wild'. Form IoT and Could Computing perspective, the team has expertise in resource management, task offloading, energy management, load balancing, and service scalability, associated with middleware technologies (such as fog/edge, femto-cloud, cloud broker, mobile device cloud) for various applications in smart cities, smart healthcare, intelligent transportation systems (ITS), Internet of Drones (IoD), Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)/Industry 4.0, 5G, and Tactile Internet.
