Abstract
For the estimation of user interruptability in wearable and mobile settings, we propose in [Context-aware notfication for wearable computing] to distinguish between the users' personal and social interruptability. In this paper, we verify this thesis with a user study on 24 subjects. Results show that there is a significant difference between social and personal interruptability. Further, we present a novel approach to estimate the social and personal interruptability of a user from wearable sensors. It is scalable for a large number of sensors, contexts, and situations and allows for online adaptation during run-time. We have developed a wearable platform, that allows to record and process the data from a microphone, 12 body-worn 3D acceleration sensors, and a location estimation. We have evaluated the approach on three different data sets, with a maximal length of two days.
