Administering Connected Co-Operative Residential Domains (ACCORD)

The management of everyday activities in the home environment can be an
extremely complex task. This is especially true when we consider the
introduction of hi-tech devices into the home. The Accord project is
developing natural, tangible techniques that will allow novel
interactive devices to be controlled and configured in the home
environment. In particular we are developing a Tangible Toolbox that
will enable people to easily embed functionality into existing
artefacts around the home and enable these devices to be integrated
with each other. Our work is informed by ethnographic studies of the
home and the common activities that occur within homes.
