Abstract

Information overload and spam are serious problems that plague our society today. In the advent of context aware systems and applications, these problems will inevitably continue to cause anguish among users. The problems stem primarily from the lack of user control over the interactions and services they receive. In search of a feasible solution to enable user controllable trade-offs over interactions, we study how the spatial model of interaction from the virtual environment domain addresses these interaction issues and find that recent research that uses similar concepts from the spatial model of interactions does not fully make use of the concept of Aura from the spatial model. This paper presents a modified spatial model of interactions focused on the abstract concept of Aura and tailored for implementation in real environments to resolve the interaction issues in context aware systems. We also conceptualise a system architecture to implement the modified spatial model of interaction and develop a fully functional prototype application as a proof of concept to demonstrate the model's operational feasibility.
