The ContexTable: Building and Testing an Intelligent, Context-Aware Kitchen Table The ContexTable: Building and Testing an Intelligent, Context-Aware Kitchen Table
The purpose of this thesis was to design and evaluate The ContexTable, a context-aware system built into a kitchen table. After establishing the current status of the field of context-aware systems and the hurdles and problems being faced, a functioning prototype system was designed and built. The prototype makes it possible to explore established, untested theory and novel solutions to problems faced in the field.
