User-Driven Mashups in Interactive Public Spaces

Searching and presenting rich data using mobile devices is hard given their inherent I/O limitations. One approach for alleviating these limitations is device symbiosis, whereby the interaction with one’s personal mobile device is augmented by additionally engaging with more capable infrastructure devices, such as kiosks and displays. We have developed a software framework called Celadon, which builds upon device symbiosis for delivering zone-based services through mobile and infrastructure devices in public spaces such as shopping malls, train stations and theme parks.

An approach for rich data visualization that is gaining wide popularity is mashups. In this paper we describe User-Driven Mashups – a general methodology that combines device symbiosis and automated creation of mashups. We have applied this methodology to build a system that enables Celadon users to flexibly interact with rich zone information through their mobile devices, leveraging large public displays. Our system bridges public and personal devices, data and services.
