At CeBIT 2012 in Hannover, Germany, the ITEA 2 project (http://www.uservices.de/) is going to showcase the easy creation of mobile services. You will be able to have a hands-on with the uService editor, create your own mobile app and share it with other people. Everybody can do that!
The CeBIT is world’s largest and most international computer expo. Please feel free to visit the uService booth at Hall 9, Stand F34 from March 6th to 10th. We look forward to see you there!
The uService project has been funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research under contract number 01—S0902F. German partners in this project are: Communology, DFKI (German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence), DLZ (Deutsches Lauftherapiezentrum), Orga Systems, Safran Morpho, University of Rostock.
Short project description
The uService project investigates the turn of mobile users into service super prosumers in order to benefit from the vast number of potential mobile services. These services can be consumed remotely by other users, in a simple way, with only their mobile devices. Mobile-to-mobile provision of this type of user-generated mobile services implies millions of potential sources with valuable information for the same amount of potential users.
Due to the particular challenge of the mobile environment, where device resources, interaction possibilities and user attention are much more restricted compared to the fixed, traditional Web environment, uService proposes a new way to look at mobile information services in order to solve this problem and deliver services that all users are expecting – above all the non-technical users. In the uService project, this type of service is called micro service or uService. These services are small, sharply focused applications with their own graphical user interface, which allow users to obtain and provide information – like opinions, recommendation, location or speed – to fellow mobile users.
