Activity-Based Prototyping of Ubicomp Applications

ActivityStudio is a suite of tools for prototyping and testing ubiquitous computing applications. It allows designers to incorporate large-scale, long-term human activities as a basis for design and speeds up ubicomp design by providing integrated support for modeling, prototyping, deployment and in situ testing. ActivityStudio prototypes can run on various target platforms, including mobile phones.

Yang Li started the ActivityStudio project in 2005, after his previous project on Topiary, a tool for prototyping location-enhanced applications. The ActivityStudio project was funded through Prof. James Landay's NSF grant and Intel donation.
