Abstract

This paper explores a suitable service model for realizing domestic smart object applications and proposes a software and hardware package called uPackage to support this model. By attaching a tiny wireless sensor node to users' belongings, users can augment the object digitally and take the object into various services such as status monitoring or preventing lost property. The system provided by uPackage supports users to install and manage such smart object services; it enables users to digitally associate sensor nodes with daily objects, manage the associated information and sensor data, and create various smart object applications without professional skills. Initial demonstration to children indicate that the service model provided by uPackage is easy understandable and increases users' acceptance of the wireless sensor node technology.
