[Report]

Abstract

Research on ubiquitous computing (UC) infrastructures at the Telecooperation Group emphasizes ears-and-mouth devices for nomadic users. In this context, the following document describes the prototype of such a device. This voice- centric headset features a Bluetooth radio for wireless network connectivity and a combination of sensors to gather context information, such as the location of the mobile user in space and th e head orientation. The Talkin g Assistant headset targets tour, exhibition, and museum guidance as an initial application domain. A corresponding demonstrator testbed has been built in order to evaluate the functionality of the device, context model, and software architecture. The Talking Assistant is also a key element of the M UNDO ubiquitous computing infrastructure which will be briefly sketched at the end.
