Urban Sensoria: Human-Centered Computing in Practice Dr. Alejandro Jaimes Denzil Ferreira Fabio Kruger Jorge Gonçalves Moritz Behrens Sofia Reis
Motivation – Explore the light conditions in Oulu and their relation with the cultural habits of Oulu people – We wanted to explore how sunlight affects peoples' mobility around Oulu's downtown areas. We've setup three cameras around the city and observed that people deflect from non-illuminated areas, with temperature drops up to 10ºC between areas Hypothesis – Are people like sunflowers? – Do they follow the light?
Other observations... People gathering around or looking when the line was being drawn – Intimidated when they saw the camera – When we looked straight at them Even a small / unusual action can draw attention to the screens
Other observations... The sun moves VERY fast – In less than 5 minutes the shadow had already displaced
Evaluation Main findings: – The vertical slider looks intuitive All interviewees interacted with it naturally – The app is funny – Not everybody likes the sun Our app can also be used to look for shadows
