Abstract : Web-Based Information Technologies & Distributed Systems represent a powerful shift in computation, where people live, work, and play in a seamlessly interweaving computing environment. It postulates a world where people are surrounded by computing devices and a computing infrastructure that supports us in everything we do. Current means of interactions with applications are almost exclusively the keyboard and the mouse or emulations thereof. This kind of interface is well adapted for classic management of information, but the new usages, mobility, ubiquitous access to information need new interfaces and new interaction modes.
This thesis aims to modelize and develop a distributed software platform allowing the user access to ubiquitous services through distributed interfaces in these new usage contexts. We propose the original architecture model UbiArch. This system extends the user interface in order to allow several modes of interactions, offering users the choice of using their voice thanks to headset or phone, or an input device such as a keypad, keyboard or other input device. For output, users will be able to listen to audio devices, and to view information on graphical displays such as phones, PDA or TV screen or by using a projector. This concept is called ``distributed modality''.
The 3-tiers design of the mVIP services based on UbiArch offers a framework in order to implement multimodal services for many application contexts. Here, we have described the use of our technology in a biometric authentication context, in a multimodal cash point simulator and in a slide show application controlled from a vocal and DTMF remote phone. This thesis has shown the feasibility of such an architecture dealing with many components and protocols.
