As a user experience researcher I developed service scenarios and mobile user interfaces for hospital and gym applications, MobiCare and MyGymManager. MobiCare is an ad-hoc social networking services that allows users to do a local micro blogging. It allows the creation of spontaneous social ad-hoc communities in a pervasive environment using mobile devices, such as their PDAs or smart phones.
It allows the creation of spontaneous social ad-hoc communities in a pervasive environment using mobile devices, such as their PDAs or smart phones. It supports a dynamic social service that helps to create new relationships with familiar strangers, by finding similar matches whenever a user enters a shared space. In that space, other users will be notified about this new user. The results of this discovery process are used to create a social relevance map, based on a profile matching algorithm, which takes into consideration common factors such as user profiles, but also features that are specific contextual informations such as current location and treatments information. After the matching is done, the users are able to communicate with other nodes in a p2p manner.
