Meet-U: Mobile Social Network

Item Type Book Section
Abstract

A major challenge for ubiquitous system design is to create applications that are legal compatible and accepted by their intended users. Today's European data protection principles especially contradict the ideas of ubiquitous computing. Additionally, users have to deal with unconventional interaction concepts that create unknown usage situations. Resulting uncertainties leads to a low amount of trust and acceptance in such systems. We apply the VENUS Development Method to develop a ubiquitous smartphone application, called Meet-U. The application supports users during the organization of meetings. We present our results from the development process. Furthermore, a laboratory experiment with 283 undergraduate students was performed to evaluate different disciplinary and multidisciplinary aspects.
