Congratulations to Sen Hirano on passing his Phase II Exam with the paper “Exploring the Potential for Gas Sensors to Classify Odors in Ubicomp Applications.” “The sense of smell is the primary method many animals use to infer information about their environment. Although human noses are less developed, it is still a sense on which […]
Sen presented a poster at Ubicomp 2012 this year: uSmell: A Gas Sensor System to Classify Odors in Natural, Uncontrolled Environments Sen Hirano, Khai Truong, Gillian Hayes Smell can be used to infer context about environments. Previous research primarily has shown that gas sensors can be used to discriminate accurately between odors when used in testing […]
We are designing, developing, and deploying an innovative and feasible mobile solution for collecting infant and caregiver observations of daily living (ODLs), sharing these data with their clinical providers, and visualizing and summarizing these data for both the parents and clinicians caring for these children. This system, called Estrellita, has been shown to be helpful in preliminary pilot studies, and now we are expanding its capabilities and evaluating Estrellita in a longitudinal field deployment.
Project: Visual schedules and choice boards are tools used in current best practices for helping children with autism and other special needs. These non-verbal kids need help communicating their choices, understanding time and activities, and so on. We are working with Windows SmartPhone, Linux small displays, and large touchscreen-enabled platforms to develop solutions that ease […]
Our paper on the design of a mobile tool based on the Social Compass Curriculum was accepted for publication at this year’s Ubicomp conference. The citation and abstract are below…. look for the camera ready version of the paper to show up on our publications page as soon as it is done. Tentori, M. and […]
