Am 6. Juli 2016 fanden die Abschlusspräsentationen des WPF’s Internet of Things statt. Insgesamt wurde fünf Projekte vorgestellt. In diesen Projekten wurde ein breites Spektrum an Ideen und Technologien umgesetzt und eingesetzt. Von Alltagsgegenständen wie Schränken, Kaffeemaschinen oder auch Wäscheleinen, wurden allerhand Sensoren und modernste Mini-Computer verwendet. Zum Einsatz kamen Rasberry Pi 3, Photons, Arduinos, LEDs, Drucksensoren, Gewichtssensoren, NFC Tags, Feuchtigkeitssensoren, AT Tinys, Gyroskope und viele andere Materialien sowie MQTT und HTTP für die Kommunikation. Im Folgenden soll eine kleiner Rückblick auf die Projekte dargestellt werden.
Permissions are crucial for mobile applications. Interesting applications want to communicate with the Internet or use a variety of sensors. Since the latest version of Android developers can use runtime permissions for asking users to grant permissions during active use
We are offering three guided projects for our master students next semester: Toolkit for Building Multi-Device Prototypes (with Deutsche Telekom), Aufbau einer IoT Architektur mit MQTT (with Opitz Consulting), Erweiterung des Interaktionsraums mobiler Geräte.
During the last session of WPF Mobile Computing we had external experts who joined our class. First they both gave insights into their daily work as developers of mobile and interactive software. Next they talked about specific topics of mobile computing. Afterwards our students presented the current version of their apps.

If you want to pass parameters from a shell to a program written in C, you can use the mechanism shown in the following piece of C code.
Users of digital devices are increasingly confronted with a tremendous amount of notifications that appear on multiple devices and screens in their environment, such as at smart homes, smart offices, smart cities, and smart mobile environments. It becomes obvious that intelligent attention management systems and alternative, for example ambient, representations of incoming notifications are needed.
The goal of this workshop is to discuss how the problems of information overload and overchoice can be solved. In the era of the Internet of Things (IoT) we have to handle incoming notifications from all our devices, and together with developments in smart city environments or with smart mobility the information overload will grow. In this workshop we want to focus on a larger understanding of the different roles notifications can play in a wide variety of computing environments including the office, the home, in cars, and other smart environments.
We solicit original, unpublished, technical papers in the areas relevant to the above topics, including, but not limited to: understanding mobile information needs, mobile notifications, mobile attention behavior, detection/prediction of availability and attention, detection/prediction of information perception, information overload, multimodal interaction with focus on attention optimization, interaction across devices, multi-device interaction, frameworks and tools for the development of smart attention systems, ambient notifications.
These little guys just arrived at our lab. The ESP8266 looks promising for IoT projects. Let us know if you are interested in doing some tests or if you have some experience working with this device.
Sometimes it is helpful to hide all icons on a desktop, e.g. during a presentation or if you want to focus on something and the files on desktop are disturbing. The following shell script is a solution for Max OS
