Title: Beyond the Phone: Mobile CH in the Age of IoT
Abstract: Since the late 90s, mobile devices have been a favoured platform for the delivery of digital content in cultural heritage settings and apps are now commonplace. The emerging Internet of Things could change this landscape: by enabling the seamless integration of the material exhibition with the digital content, and by collecting and exploiting use data it is possible to create novel visitors’ experiences and services. Using case studies from the EU project meSch used by over 20,000 visitors across Europe, I will first compare the use of a mobile phone with a bespoke tangible interaction as means to access multimedia content in an exhibition and outline pros and cons of both technologies. I will then discuss a number of implemented examples showing the opportunities of designing with cultural heritage professionals.
Short Bio: Dr Daniela Petrelli is Professor of Interaction Design at the Art & Design Research Centre, Sheffield Hallam University, UK. She started working on new technologies for cultural heritage in 1996 designing the first context-sensitive personalised interactive mobile guide. Recently she led the European project meSch that explored tangible and embodied interactions in museums and heritage sites. meSch has received international awards and is the first to use the Internet of Things and Cloud Computing in museums. Dr Petrelli's other research interests include personal and family memories, data visualisation, multimedia and multilingual information access. In her career, she has published over 100 international peer-reviewed contributions and received 12 awards both from academia and industry. Dr Petrelli is director of the Digital Materiality Lab at the Art & Design Research Centre, an interest group looking into new digital-material hybrids.
