Manfred Tscheligi, Managing Director of CURE (Center for usability research & engineering) and coordinator of the project, stressed the aim of the project: the more attacks, the Internet of things to trust issues become more important. The uTRUSTit project will provide those information users available, they need to make decisions without being a security expert or fear of uncertain risks”. Six European research partners multidisciplinary research the uTRUSTit Consortium consists of experienced researchers and practitioners from six different European countries and can rely on simulation and Usablity laboratories within the framework of the project. The project is coordinated by the Austrian non-University Research Center CURE. “UTRUSTit explores CURE when and how users of the Internet of things” trust and adjusts the involvement of users in the development of response models, which eventually also be evaluated in field trials of CURE.
The Norwegian Computing Center collects and analyzes the user needs with special reference to users with physical disabilities. The Research Institute developed with the model representing the user feedback about the current state of security. The virtual reality Center production engineering (VRCP) of the Technical University of Chemnitz Department carries out the development and preparation of virtual reality simulations. The simulations allow you to quickly integrate the feedback of the users in the design process. The Hungarian IT-security company SEARCH-LAB examines the impact of safety ads of the Internet of things and concentrating on the human perception of trust and developed methods that determine the trustworthiness of the security of a system.
Sweden connectivity has specialized in Internet-of-things-technology and developed in the uTRUSTit project of the technology for the evaluation of scenarios. The Faculty of law of the Catholic University of Leiden examines the legal challenges in terms of security and Privatheitsaspekte of the Internet of things. total cost: 3.1 million euro EU funding: 2,4 million euro duration: 36 months (September 2010 August 2013) not to publish detailed information received by the project partners: CURE Center for usability research and engineering (Austria) CURE: CURE is a Vienna-based independent research organization with Europe’s leading expertise in the fields of usability engineering, Human computer interaction, user interface design, user experience research and user-centered design. A major concern of CURE is to bridge the gap between research and practice. Approximately 35 researchers and researchers from different disciplines such as computer science, psychology, sociology, pedagogy and the Pforzheim in projects are working at CURE. CURE has one of the world’s most advanced usability and user experience lab. The CURE research include the development and use of User experience engineering methods, research into factors of use of and methodological transfer to design optimization.
