By Hristijan Gjoreski, Mitja Luštrek, Matjaž Gams (auth.), Fabio Paternò, Boris de Ruyter, Panos Markopoulos, Carmen Santoro, Evert van Loenen, Kris Luyten (eds.)

This publication constitutes the refereed complaints of the 3rd foreign Joint convention an Ambient Intelligence, AmI 2012, held in Pisa, Italy, in November 2012. The 18 revised complete papers and five brief papers offered have been rigorously reviewed and chosen from forty seven (full papers) respectively 14 (short papers) submissions. From a systematic viewpoint, the papers make a multidisciplinary method protecting fields like computing device technological know-how, human computing device interplay, electric engineering, business layout, behavioral sciences, geared toward enriching actual environments with a community of dispensed units, reminiscent of sensors, actuators, and computational assets, so one can help clients of their daily actions. From a technological standpoint the amount represents the convergence of modern achievements in ubiquitous and communique applied sciences, pervasive computing, clever consumer interfaces and synthetic intelligence.

Borazio Capacitive proximity sensors on the other hand can indirectly measure the distance and nature of a grounded object within reach. This means that the measurement result depends on the object’s distance, its size and the material it is made of. In this work, we show that an accelerometer and a capacitive proximity sensor can be used to improve activity recognition in activities of daily living that rely heavily upon object usage.

5. 5ms. number of charging cycles in a given time span. In order to guard the sensor from measuring the capacitance to underlying objects, a shield electrode is placed directly underneath the measuring electrode. The shield is driven with the same potential as the sensing electrode, such that the capacitance between the two electrodes is negligible. Using this shielding method, the measured capacitance will only be slightly affected by the grounded underlying arm. Figure 4 shows the the wrist-worn prototype used in the evaluation experiments, with the HedgeHog as the main data logger, the capacitive sensor circuit and the wristband holding the sensing and shielding electrodes.

Speech, break, emphasis) are represented by a set of pre-defined CSS classes. If the graphical element is an input, the extension also starts the possibility of recording the voice and, when it detects a long silence after the vocal input, it invokes the ASR passing it the user’s utterance. The result of the ASR is then used for filling the corresponding graphical element, or simulating a link or button click. 4 Example Application In this work we want to exploit the model-based approach in supporting adaptation in real world applications relevant in the ambient intelligence domain.
