Shin'ichi Konomi, George Roussos, Enriching urban spaces with ambient computing, the internet of things, and smart city design, IGI Global, 10.4018/978-1-5225-0827-4, 2016.10, In recent years, the presence of ubiquitous computing has increasingly integrated into the lives of people in modern society. As these technologies become more pervasive, new opportunities open for making citizens' environments more comfortable, convenient, and efficient. Enriching Urban Spaces with Ambient Computing, the Internet of Things, and Smart City Design is a pivotal reference source for the latest scholarly material on the interaction between people and computing systems in contemporary society, showcasing how ubiquitous computing influences and shapes urban environments. Highlighting the impacts of these emerging technologies from an interdisciplinary perspective, this book is ideally designed for professionals, researchers, academicians, and practitioners interested in the influential state of pervasive computing within urban contexts..

Participatory contextual reminder environments for local communities, International Journal of Human Computer Studies, 10.1016/j.ijhcs.2016.09.001, 102, 41-53, 2017.06, Many projects have looked at how communities can co-design shared online repositories, such as Wikimapia and Wikipedia. However, little work has examined how local communities can give advice and support to their members by creating context-aware reminders that may include advice, tips and small requests. We developed the Community Reminder environment, a smartphone-based platform that supports community members to design and use context-aware reminders. We have conducted a one-month field study of Community Reminder to crowdsource and deliver safety-relevant information in a local community. The results show the benefits of involving community members in reminder design and connecting different perspectives. We also show that the proposed approach can broaden participation in local communities..
2. Shin'ichi Konomi Tomoyo Sasao Simo Hosio Kaoru Sezaki, Using Ambient WiFi Signals to Find Occupied and Vacant Houses in Local Communities, Journal of Ambient Intelligence and Humanized Computing, Springer., http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/s12652-018-0899-8, 10, 2, 779-789, 2018.12, In many countries, the population is either declining or rapidly concentrating in big cities, which causes problems in the form of vacant houses. It is often challenging to keep track of the locations and the conditions of vacant houses, and for example in Japan, costly manual field studies are employed to map the occupancy situation. In this paper, we discuss a technique to infer the locations of occupied and vacant houses based on ambient WiFi signals. Our technique collects Received Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI) data based on opportunistic smartphone sensing, constructs hybrid networks of WiFi access points, and analyzes their geospatial patterns based on statistical shape modeling. In situ experiments in two residential neighborhoods show that the proposed technique can successfully detect occupied houses and substantially outperform a simple triangulation-based method in one of the neighborhoods. We also argue that the proposed technique can significantly reduce the cost of field surveys to find vacant houses as the number of potential houses to be inspected decreases..
