English abstract:
In this work we introduce and examine the possibility of aid- ing in the oversight of mobile groups by assisting the supervi- sor in his or her awareness of the physical presence of mem- bers. The subject matter of this paper is to find out whether or not that is viable, and why. Our approach is thus: we have lead interviews with users representative of the target audi- ence in order to gather information on group supervision and define requirements. Secondly we have assessed five wireless technologies for use in an actual implementation. As a third step we have engineered an actual prototype based on the in- formation gathered thus far. Lastly, this device was evalu- ated both under laboratory conditions and in the field. We find high acceptance and demand among prospect users and conclude from evaluation that there are strong indications to the viability of reducing the workload of supervising mobile groups by assisting the person in charge with awareness of physical presence of members.
