The Project

Palpable computing is a vision of Ubiquitous Computing that purposely addresses the ways in which humans meaningfully interact with the distributed computational systems that are available in the environment. The project developed a vision of UbiComp technologies as used, controlled, created and envisioned by people with different expectations and desires, by developing a middleware runtime infrastructure. The middleware runtime infrastructure was used to develop different application prototypes demonstrating the potential of the approach. Among the prototypes available from the project, a new concept of incubator has been developed with the main aim of making preterm birth a more sustainable experience for the baby and the caregivers, promoting the active involvement of parents and the medical staff in the care of the newborn.
