Abstract

The advent of Human Computer Interaction (HCI) or Man-Machine Interaction or Interfacing (MMI), has ushered in a lot of innovations, bringing about greater development in relation to smart homes. These developments were sparked by ubiquitous computing. HCI is a process that involves users as well as technology in the design which must satisfy the usability and functionality requirements. Smart home technology allows users to have control over their homes through automation of lighting system, security system, and electronic devices, among others. Many tools that are used in computer systems can also be integrated in smart home systems. Ubiquitous computing has transformed the way we live and relate in a wireless communication environment. This paper provides insights on areas of application of smart homes and HCI. Furthermore, requirements for smart home and HCI are examined. Also, the study considers issues in HCI and the future of HCI technology in relation to multimodality, intelligent, adaptive interfaces and active interfaces.


Description

The advent of Human Computer Interaction (HCI) or Man-Machine Interaction or Interfacing (MMI) has ushered in a lot of innovations, bringing about greater development in relation to smart homes. These developments were sparked by ubiquitous computing. There has been a series of transformation in HCI; instead of designing regular interfaces, the different research branches have had different focus on the concepts of multimodality rather than unimodality, intelligent adaptive interfaces rather than command/action-based ones, and finally active rather than passive interfaces (Fakhreddine et al., 2008). HCI is a cross-disciplinary area (for example, engineering, psychology, ergonomics and design) that deals with the theory, design, implementation, and evaluation of the ways that humans use and interact with computing devices.
