1. Panneerselvam, Praveen Jelish. Design of smart grid interfaces, Focusing of smart TVs.

Degree: 2013, , School of Computing

Smart Grid research is growing around the world due to the need to replace the ageing old electricity grid with an intelligent, reliable electricity network. The smart grid aims at creating a reliable power distribution and efficient power usage in homes. One of the key issues focused in this project is providing real time energy feedback to users, which is minimal or non-existent in the current grid system. This thesis investigates about using smart TVs to provide real time energy feedback in homes. Since its introduction in 2009 smart TVs are growing in popularity in European market. To provide real time energy feedback on smart TVs three features are identified Smart TV application, ambilighting and push notification. The Human-centered design process is used for designing the Smart TV interface system using the identified features. A literature study is conducted to gather the user requirements for the smart TV interface. The information gathered during the study is used for the design and implementation of the interface prototype. As an example platform the Philips smart TV 2013 is chosen to demonstrate the various features that can be used to provide energy feedback. The usability of the Smart TV interface is evaluated with users and the results are recorded. The smart TV application, ambient lighting and push notification system in Smart TVs is demonstrated for providing real-time energy feedback. The interface is evaluated with users and results are discussed. The result suggests that Smart TVs can serve as an informational display in homes. The Smart TV interface should be interlinked with Smart Phone and Tablet applications to be effective, further the users prefer the Smart Phone over the Smart TV application to control the household devices.

The thesis work evaluates the potential of using smart TVs to provide real time energy feedback in homes. The results of the thesis showed that smart phone are the primary interaction medium suitable for home environment while smart TVs can serve as an informative medium to provide ambient feedback in homes.

2. Goyal, Nippun. Investigating Data Exploration Techniques Involving Map Based Geotagged Data in a Collaborative Sensemaking Environment.

Degree: 2016, University of Waterloo

The recent advancement in Global Positioning Systems (GPS) using satellite and geotagging has opened many opportunities for data-driven decision-making in fields such as emergency response, military intelligence, oil exploration and urban planning. The enormity and explosion of geospatial data necessitates the development of improved tools to support analysis and decision-making around this complex data – a process often known as sensemaking. A typical geotagged map can have hundreds of data points that are multi-dimensional, with each point having meaningful information associated with its location, as well as project specific information e.g., photographs, graphs, charts, bulletin data among many other information parameters. Sensemaking activities involving such complex data often involve a team of trained professionals who aim to make sense of this data to answer specific sets of questions, and make key decisions. Researchers are currently exploring the use of surface computing technology, such as, interactive digital tabletops and touch-based tablets to form methodologies to enhance collaborative sensemaking. This thesis examined the impact of two multi-surface interaction techniques that allowed individual group members to explore detailed geotagged data on separate peripheral tablets while sharing a large geographical overview on a digital tabletop. The two interaction techniques differed in the type of user input needed to control the location on the tabletop overview of a bounded “region of interest” (ROI) corresponding to the geotagged data displayed on the personal tablets. One technique (TOUCH) required the ROI to be positioned on the tabletop using direct touch interaction. The other technique (TILT) required the ROI to be positioned via 3-dimensional (up-down, left-right) tilt-gesture made with the personal tablet. Findings from the study revealed that the effectiveness of the respective interaction techniques depended on the stage of sensemaking process, and on which collaboration strategy groups employed during collaborative sensemaking.
