Cross-country skiers go on-line
2006 (English)Report (Other academic)
This article presents a pervasive computing system which give spectators of sport events an enriched media experience. The system utilizes Internet- enabled sensor technology integrated into a context-aware platform and was evaluated during real-life use at the Vasaloppet cross-country ski event. Sensor data was transmitted from contestants, using Bluetooth wireless ad- hoc networking and GPRS technology, to the context-aware platform which in turn presented the sport event spectator with a personalized and context- aware view. The system architecture and integration of components are discussed in this article, together with evaluations from technical and user perspectives. The results confirm that our approach is technically feasible and that the system provides an enriched media-experience for the majority of spectators.
