Indoor collocation - Exploring the ultralocal context

Abstract

Prior research has investigated how to improve awareness of collocation at neighborhood scales or citywide through the use of smartphone apps. The availability of indoor maps and more accurate indoor navigation technologies motivate us to investigate the concept of collocation in the context of indoor settings. In this paper, we introduce the notion of ultralocality, which involves people and various kinds of resources collocated in an indoor environment. We present our interview study and initial results that help us understand how people perceive collocation in an ultralocal enviornment. We also introduce a mobile application that helps people explore an ultralocal environment in the college campus buildings.
