Designing and Evaluating « Phygital » Interaction Techniques for Noise Management in the University Library

Context Presentation

The goal of this project is to provide a librarian with easy to use interactive tools to monitor and control the noise made by students in a University Library. Sensors installed in the library detect the level of noise in different places of the library. Based on this information, the librarian can observe where in the library the level is too high and hence go and warn the students.

In addition, this tool allows the librarian to define zones in the library with different levels of authorized noise, to allow different forms of work in the library. For monitoring and control, the approach we explore in this project is based on the use of a physical model representing the whole library as it may constitute a strong support to the librarian to understand to which place in the library the information is related to.

Interaction techniques, Phygital Interaction Technique

Scientific goals

•    Design and implement “phygital interaction techniques”, i.e. based on the use of a physical support to visualize and interact with digital data related to a physical location. Combining an immersive visualization and a physical model requires the development of original and relevant techniques.

•    Assess the impact of phygital interaction techniques, on the usability of the interaction technique. Users experiments will be conducted to compare our solutions to monitoring application based on the use of lists of table and zones.


Interaction Techniques for Situated Data through a Physical Model

Context Presentation

Over the last decades, the amount of data has increased to 29000 Go produced each second. Understanding the data requires tools to transform these numbers, texts and images into concrete representations. The field of data visualization aims to produce data representation to visualize and analyze abstract data. Building, people or vehicles produce a lot of data collected by many sensors. These specific data are related to a physical location (e.g. number of people in a room is related to the room, humidity in a floor is related to the floor, etc.) Bring and display them close from their physical context allow people to make a better representation of the data (Embedded Data Representations, Willet et al. , 2017).

In this project we aim to design interaction techniques to navigate and manipulate the data close to a physical referent. The main goal is to develop a full interactive physical model of the campus endowed with situated data.

Opportunistic Software Composition

Context Presentation

Cyber-physical and ambient systems surround the human user with services at her/his disposal. From these services, complex composites services, tailored to the user preferences and the current situation, can be composed automatically and on the fly.

To produce the knowledge necessary for automatic composition in the absence of both prior expression of the user's needs and specification of a process or a composition model, we develop a generic solution based on online reinforcement learning. It is decentralized within a multi-agent system in charge of the administration and composition of the services, which learns incrementally from and for the user.

accessOCampus - A Universal Access System for Smart Doors and Gates

Context Presentation

On site access control exists almost everywhere in today's modern world. Keys have already been replaced by access cards in most places but accessOCampus aims to improve on these existing systems even more.

For less than 200€ (excluding the optional thermal camera) an accessOCampus client module can be built, this includes : NFC access card recognition, passcode entry, face recognition and a large screen for access related information. The system can also be locked down or forced open globally by an authorized security personnel via the easy to use web interface.

In theory, accessOCampus can be used to log who has entered any given zone and provide detailed information on those people. For instance, if any given access card is stolen we can detect who used it via face recognition either silently or to refuse access.This project could be implemented in select zones of Toulouse University to provide a low-cost high fidelity access system.

Conception of Timeline Component for Timed Data Analyzis

Context Presentation

SandFox project is a collaborative project between IRIT and Berger-Levrault company. This project is part of neOCampus initiative. The goal is to find best ways to represent and interact with data. These data are dated, we would like to be able to compare them over different periods.

To do that, we were doing research concerning different existing models of interaction with data. We were looking among those that most closely matched expectations of our collaborators. From these models, we were going to the conception step of low and medium fidelity prototypes. For the selected model, we were choosing a circular representation. This representation allows more visibility to compare several periods of time. We were also able to produce a low fidelity prototype (paper prototype) and a medium fidelity prototype in progress (make on adobe Xd).

In conclusion, we were founding a representation that allows a clear view of data but lacks interactives elements to change building data for another building or interaction modalities which have not yet been clearly defined.

1/2 Journée scientifique neOCampus

Le 28 février 2020 de 13h30 à 18h, s'est déroulée la demi-journée scientifique neOCampus dans l'auditorium Herbrand de l'IRIT. Les sujets de recherche des nouveaux doctorants ainsi que des stagiaires de l'année 2019-2020 ont été présentés.

Exposition à Occitanie Innov

neOCampus est une opération lancée en 2013 sur le campus de Rangueil de l’Université Toulouse III Paul Sabatier, afin d’en faire un campus connecté et écologique qui soit un terrain d’expérimentations et d’innovations. Aujourd’hui, nous vous présentons quelques-uns des travaux qui sont menés par les laboratoires impliqués dans cette opération.

Nous présenterons :

  1. Les travaux sur le développement de terre crue à base de liants organique et/ou minéraux. Dans un contexte de lutte contre le réchauffement climatique, le développement de la construction en terre crue est une véritable alternative en vue de la réduction de la part d’émission de CO2 du secteur du bâtiment.
  2. Les travaux sur les multi-capteurs de gaz innovants pour l'analyse de la qualité d'air intérieur. L'objectif de ses travaux est de caractériser de nouvelles synthèses d’oxydes métalliques, comme le SnO2, CuO, ZnO, WO3 et des mélanges ou des bicouches de ces différents oxydes métalliques.
  3. Les travaux autour du véhicule autonome sur la reprise de contrôle d'un véhicule autonome par un système auto-adaptatif avec le développement de solutions innovantes intelligentes pour la voiture du futur, à la fois acceptables par l’humain et faisables technologiquement
  4. Un système d'évitement autonome de collisions d'avions par systèmes multi-agents pour la génération de simulation de trafics aériens réalistes et adaptatifs.
  5. Une maquette pour réaliser des démonstrations de véhicules connectés. Il s’agit d’une plateforme de modèles réduits de véhicules pour l'expérimentation de flotte de véhicules autonomes et connectés.
  6. Le projet ApiCampus portant sur les ruches connectées afin de mieux comprendre l’impact de l’environnement sur les abeilles.
  7. autOCampus, l’observatoire des mobilités du véhicule autonome qui est en train de se mettre en place sur le campus Rangueil de l’Université Toulouse III Paul Sabatier.
