About Us

Welcome to the Mobiquitous Lab!

University of Strathclyde The Mobiquitous Lab at The University of Strathclyde investigates user behaviour in the context of mobile devices and ubiquitous computing. The group follows strong user-centred participatory design methods working closely with users to develop innovative mobile and ubiquitous solutions that are truly usable. We'll exploit multimodal, sensor-based and tangible interaction as appropriate.

Watch Texting StudyMobile and ubiquitous technologies provide new opportunities to improve people's lives as they naturally integrate into everyday contexts. We engage in research investigating these new options, for example by studying how to improve the health and well-being of the population, to improve device usage by older adults and to improve visitor engagement in museums.

New technologies and interface concepts also pose new challenges for interface design, e.g. mobile devices require designing for small screens, and multi-touch tables can be viewed from all sides. Our research contributes to understanding and catering for these issues.

Our research spans a variety of user-centered design methods, including quantitative user studies in controlled experiments, field studies of technology deployment in the use context, and participant observation. We have experience in conducting system evaluations as well as in contributing to requirements analysis through working closely with end users over the course of a system development project.

Mobiquitous Design and Prototype LabDesigning mobile and ubiquitous solutions involves multidisciplinary research. Within the Mobiquitous Lab we have expertise in mobile interaction, user centred design, multimodal interaction, gaming, software engineering and cloud computing.

The Mobiquitous Lab is led by Drs Mark Dunlop, Marilyn McGee-Lennon, Marc Roper, John Levine, Martin Halvey and Sotirios Terzis and participates in the SICSA HCI research theme.
