    Former colleague

    Vitae

    Tobias Dyrks studied information systems at the University of Siegen. In 2004 he joined Fraunhofer FIT as student assistant composing his final thesis on knowledge management in online communities. After graduating from university in 2005, he became research associate at Fraunhofer. Tobias Dyrks has worked in numerous national and European research projects with the focus on knowledge management and collaboration support of mobile workers. In his research with the European project wearIT@work, Tobias studied knowledge management practice in its broadest sense such as sense making practices of firefighters. In 2007, Tobias managed the User Centered Design Board with the Paris Fire Service, one of four sub-projects of the wearIT@work project. Currently, he coordinates the landmarke project, a national initiative of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research focusing on collaboration and navigation support of firefighers. Tobias is both research associate of the University of Siegen and Fraunhofer FIT.

      [BibTeX] [Abstract]

      Indoor navigation plays a central role for the safety of firefighters. The circumstances in which a firefighting intervention occurs represent a rather complex challenge for the design of supporting technology. In this paper, we present the results of our work designing an ad hoc ubicomp infrastructure to support navigation of firefighters working in structure fires inside the zone of danger. We take a wider approach, complementing the technical questions with the development of effective navigation practices based on technology available today. We provide an overview of the complete design process, from the theoretical and empirical underpinnings to the construction and evaluation of three iterations of the platform. We report the results of our evaluation and the implications and tensions uncovered in this process, and we discuss the challenges and implications of it for the design of ubicomp for firefighters.

    • Ramirez, L., Denef, S. & Dyrks, T. (2009)Towards human-centered support for indoor navigation

      IN Proceedings of the Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI), Pages: 1279–1282 doi:10.1145/1518701.1518893
      [BibTeX] [Abstract]

      This paper presents a new perspective for the design of indoor navigation support. In contrast to technology oriented approaches coming from Context Awareness research, we argue for a wider focus that complements the technical question of providing precise indoor location with the development of more effective navigation practices based on technology available today. Starting from research on indoor navigation conducted with the Paris Fire Brigade, we present two design concepts aimed at supporting firefighters in creating and finding their own paths, together with some of the design strategies that informed the creation of these concepts.
