Our trip to Las Vegas was quite successful. At the ICCE we (Daniel Thommes, Qi Wang, Christos Grecos and me) received the Best Poster Paper Award for the Paper
“RemoteUI: A High-Performance Remote User Interface System for Mobile Consumer Electronic Devices”.
Daniel Thommes is a PhD Student at the Media University (HdM) and the University of the West of Scotland (UWS). Qi Wang and Christos Grecos (both UWS) and me are supervising him. Here you can find the press release on the HdM Website: HdM News.
Abstract of the paper:
Innovative applications become feasible with solutions for remotely controlling mobile devices over the air. To realize these applications, efficient technologies for transferring the devices’ user interfaces are required. Existing remote UI solutions however were not built for the mobile world. Rich, touchable user interfaces on battery-powered devices combined with low available bandwidth and high network latency will highlight their problems. We propose a new solution called RemoteUI, which works with abstract UI descriptions and their remote rep-lication. Experiment results show that RemoteUI significantly outperforms the existing popular Virtual Network Computing (VNC) approach, and it is highly efficient in terms of required bandwidth when compared with VNC.
