Abstract:
In this paper, we report on a user-centered, iterative design
process for augmenting sports equipment with ubiquitous
computing technology. In several design iterations,
a fully working system for training and physiotherapy has
been developed and deployed using hard- and software
components of ubiquitous computing technology. We report
on the design and development process that led to this system.
Based on our experience we generalize the specific
processes to general ubicomp systems. The validity of our
approach has been verified by a larger user study.
