IUI Workshop on Location Awareness for Mixed and Dual Reality (LAMDa)
The LAMDa workshop aims to discuss the impact of Dual Reality and Mixed Reality on Location Awareness and other applications in Smart Environments. Virtual environments – which are an essential part of Dual and Mixed Realities – can be used to create new applications and to enhance already existing applications in the real world. On the other hand, existing sensors in the real world can be used to enhance the virtual world as well. The Kalman-filter can be seen as an example for this type of application: Sensor measurements in the real world are brought into the virtual world in form of a model that also describes the error distribution of the sensors. The virtual world is then used to make a prediction for the next measurement in the real world and both results – the prediction and the measurement – are used to refine the virtual world and to bring more accurate sensor measurements into the real world, usually in form of User Interfaces. The main scope of this workshop is: How can the Dual Reality paradigm be combined with location awareness to achieve improvements for location-based and socially-aware services and other applications in smart environments?
