My research is focused on creating a tools-driven method for interactive software design that implements a strong user-centric perspective and supports testing steps in all phases of the development process enabling to concentrate on the end-users’ requirements and identify how the users’ way of thinking can be considered as the basic way of controlling the application. Different to other approaches the method supports the generation of prototypes and examples to enable the developer to test intermediary results during the design process and to consider users’ feedback as often and early as possible.

The following list summarizes projects that I have proposed, designed and realized together with post-graduate students. All projects have been sponsored by the industry or the German government.

  • Personal Newspaper

    The personalized newspaper service (PZD) can filter internet data regarding news and with the consideration of the user’s personal preferences. The personal newspaper can separate important from unimportant information, and offer the user the best possible access to these information. Thus, the user is able to get access by any visual (e.g. HTML) or auditive […]

  • Smart Telephony Assistant

    The Smart Telephony Assistant was developed within the SerCHo Project to create an optimum user interface for communication services and interactive media applications in Ambient Assisted Environments. To overcome a situation in which provision of each such service is tied to a specific devices, and therefore usually tied to a specific location, the STA splits […]

  • Multi Access Service Platform

    Computer systems as we know them are currently changing from single systems running a set of applications to complex networks of connected devices heavily influencing the users’ everyday lives. This development leads to new requirements for applications and human-computer interaction. Model-based approaches aim at modelling the different aspects of the user interface on certain levels […]

  • Smart GUI Controller

    As home appliance networks with numerous, heterogeneous home appliances are becoming more and more popular and affordable, the demand for new concepts of user interfaces arises. These complex networks facilitate unlimited multilayered applications and services and enable previously “stupid” devices to be operated in an integrated and intelligent way. For an appliance in a smart […]

  • Multimodal Cooking Assistant

    Cooking can well be called one of the most basic and important activities in many households. However, this every day activity has until now only been supported through a few service ideas such as cooking-TV-shows, web recipe data bases and of course countless cookbooks. The Smart Cooking Assistant combines all of these services adding up […]
