The UbiComp lab (@ National Taiwan University) is interested in designing and creating real systems that demonstrate how future computing technologies can blend into our everyday activities. We are interested in creating digital technology that can engage and excite people into active participation of desirable physical and mental activities at home that are considered healthy, creative, productive, educational, playful, etc. Our goal is to develop digital technology that empowers people, not just supports smart environments.
We are interested in embedding computing, networking, and sensing capability into physical objects and environment so that they exhibit intelligent interaction with human. We are interested in behavior sensing and feedback systems that influence and motivate behavioral changes in people. We are interested in exploring sensor system & networking platform, making it easy to create new pervasive applications. We are interested in indoor and outdoor localization system that can track whereabouts of things and people. We have a general interest in discovering new lifestyles, social interaction, and human-computer interaction enabled by ubiquity of computing and networking in our physical environment.
We especially welcome undergraduate students (大學部1-4) to participate in our research projects.
