There will be four deliverables in this project. They are listed as follows: • Hardware A next generation MID built specifically for the innovative MMI. This hardware platform consists of components not present in the first generation MID, including touch sensors, higher resolution camera, a more powerful CPU for computation and analysis, etc. • Software Sensor algorithms, including those of motion sensor, visual sensor and touch sensor, developed on the second generation MID platform. • User group & market studies A user group study will be conducted on the younger generations of mobile device users to collect their feedbacks on MMI; another market study will be conducted to analyze products in the market related to our MMI, in terms of functions and user experience. • Patent applications Two MMI-related patents will be filed in this project to protect our intellectual properties.
