Description A considerable amount of research has been carried out towards enabling average users to customize the interactions between their smart devices through trigger-action (“if... then...”) programming.
This thesis aims at creating a user interface for overcoming the current limitations of trigger-action, device-to-device programming. The interface should let end-users define some sort of high-level rules that can be applied and automatically adapted to multiple devices and services. The goal of this work will be reached by applying a strong user-centered approach, starting from a requirement elicitation phase (with real users) to identify a proper format for high-level rules description and composition. The application will be, then, developed as a web or mobile application and will be validated with real users, if possible. The outcome of the thesis, if satisfying, will be made freely available as an Open Source project.
