PACTMAN: Trust, Privacy and Consent in Future Pervasive Environments

An EPSRC-funded project on Trust, Identity, Privacy and Security in the Digital Economy.

Understanding User Attitudes to Personalised Display Environments

In previous work, members of the project have developed a comprehensive architecture for enabling users to personalise nearby public displays. This architecture, called TACITA, allows the creation of smart environments that adapt to the presence of users. As part of the PACTMAN project, in collaboration with the PETRAS Research Hub, we have created a robust, scalable implementation of this architecture and we are now trialling it on a campus-wide display testbed at Lancaster.

Further details of the Tacita architecture appear in this paper (DOI: 10.1145/2556288.2557287). For more information on our campus testbed please see "Reflections on the long-term use of an experimental digital signage system".
