    Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)

Project Description

Our goal is to improve the well-being of city dwellers by developing an intelligent augmented reality agent that facilitates the communication and interaction between citizens and Smart Cities. Heterogenous user interfaces to Smart City systems can make it hard to access relevant information and set priorities, and hence can be a barrier for citizens to interact with services. We will develop an augmented reality Smart Citizen Agent that supports active citizenship, participation, and co-design by facilitating the citizens’ access to heterogeneous Smart City services and, allows the Smart City to collect data about citizen well-being, engagement, and the quality of services. The front-end of the Smart Citizen Agent is a humanoid Augmented Reality Agent, i.e. a computer-animated character that is integrated into the user’s physical environment. Augmented reality agents are one of the most promising fields of application for virtual reality content and are particularity promising in a Smart City environment.
