Human, Machine, Building, Urban Space Interaction in an IoT era
Human, Machine, Building, Urban Space Interaction in an IoT era – 物联网时代的人类、机器、建筑、与城市空间互动 Zhang Qianning 章倩宁, Sunnie Sing Yeung Lau 刘升阳, Wang Jing 王静 , Stephen Siu Yu Lau 刘少瑜 Urban space, once designed, is difficult to interact with users and be changed according to different needs. Nowadays, with advanced technologies, situations are changing. The booming Internet-of-Things (IoT) technology connects people and space in a new way, making urban space interactive and responsive. Under these circumstances, people and space can communicate with each other, and urban space can identify individuals and understand their needs.
This research project is to study an individual’s preference for space and its surrounding environment through advanced sensing and IoT technologies that interact between participants and space, and the implication of quality of the spatial design on user behavior. The main installation of the project is a 3m x 3m x 3m three-dimensional space. Participants can play with the modules in the space until they find the most wanted layouts. Meanwhile, a digital and interactive panel allows them to change background music and lighting environment to create their own ideal space. Various human behaviors, environment-related factors, locations of each module, and the general information of participants (mood, gender, age group, etc.) are recorded by sensors and IoT devices to promote direct feedbacks of real-time, dynamic participation of participants. For further analysis, machine learning and statistical analysis will be applied as methods. The collected data will be analyzed to explore the spatial and environmental preferences of different groups of participants, and the potential of how advanced technologies could help people interact with the space and environment.
In sum, this project encourages the visitors to create a preferred space of their own while their choices and general information are recorded by advance detecting and analyzing systems. This research project is a testing bed for human-space interactive innovation. This is a new level of citizen participation in public space, and it is enabled by advanced IoT technologies. The urban space could not only change its spatial and environmental settings for individuals, but also predict the preferences of the new visitors.
