Tacita provides a novel framework to automatically adapt smart environments to the presence of users while still preserving their privacy. A robust and scalable implementation of the system has been rolled out at Lancaster and has been trialled on a campus-wide display testbed.
Tacita was featured by Reuters and a number of news outlets across the UK, India and United States. Reuters reporter and Head of Innovations, Jim Drury, met with PACTMAN and PETRAS researchers Nigel Davies and Mateusz Mikusz to discuss Tacita and the research behind the project.
