Abstract

This doctoral thesis takes a critical view on the increasing technology penetration of our everyday life. Often, it is not clear what these technologies are good for and what value they bring to our life. Especially in Ubiquitous Computing (UbiComp) - a young research discipline investigating the ubiquity of computing technology in our everyday life - it is criticized that research and development is too technology-oriented. This work demonstrates that a redefinition of Requirements Engineering by strengthening its close relationship to Product Management and the combination of these disciplines with UbiComp research builds the foundation to create innovations with UbiComp.
