Experience and application research: Involving Users in the Development of Ambient Intelligence, ISTAG Working Group Final Report - v1

Funded under: FP6-IST

Abstract

Experience and Application Research involves research, development and design, by, with and for users. It also covers research into methods and tools to enable this. Experience and Application Research can be undertaken in centres, physical or virtual, via co-operative networks, or through field trials. An important novel feature of Experience and Application Research is that it involves users in all stages of research and development.
Experience and Application Research is a means of furthering the development of and for realising the vision of ambient intelligence. The requirements for realising the vision are multidisciplinary approaches, and research, evaluation and demonstration activities involving people who will have to use ambient intelligence systems. Experience and Application Research will also help to provide a structure for existing activities, and the means to enable these activities to develop.
Successful research and development in ambient intelligence needs a new approach based on the involvement of those that will be affected by the presence of such systems. This observation also applies to the later activity of developing and introducing new commercial ambient intelligence products and services.
