Robots currently see a global rise that is accelerated by Covid-19 and social distancing regulations. In this context, we are glad to share a new article written by our chairs, Marius Hoggenmüller, Martin Tomitsch, and Luke Hespanhol, entitled “Designing urban robots for hybrid placemaking experiences”.
The article explores how urban robots can push the boundaries of media architectural interfaces for hybrid placemaking activities in a post-pandemic world, and it was published on Medium >> read it here
This article is based on full paper that they also wrote together and was accepted for the ACM CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems 2020 . The paper was entitled “Stop and Smell the Chalk Flowers: A Robotic Probe for Investigating Urban Interaction with Physicalised Displays” and can be accessed via the ACM library
Marius Hoggenmüller, Martin Tomitsch, and Luke Hespanhol, are also part of the Design Lab, which is a research group at The University of Sydney, and focuses on exploring “the role of design for innovation”, as well as the “interactions and experiences between people and digital technologies”.
