Instead of thinking about our phone, how about a phone that thinks for us?
It would Sense your environment and enable you to Say what you need to. That is SenSay.
What if a phone could...
Change ringer volume when appropriate?
Let emergency calls through?
Help you remember to call people back?
SenSay is a context-aware mobile phone that adapts to
dynamically changing environmental and physiological
states. In addition to manipulating ringer volume,
vibration, and phone alerts, SenSay can provide remote
callers with the ability to communicate the urgency of their
calls, make call suggestions to users when they are idle,
and provide the caller with feedback on the current status
of the SenSay user. A number of sensors including
accelerometers, light, and microphones are mounted at
various points on the body to provide data about the user’s
context. A decision module uses a set of rules to analyze
the sensor data and manage a state machine composed of
uninterruptible, idle, active and normal states.
