Abstract

The proposed system uses a Client-Server architecture to manage wearable device displaying a computed graphical icon or a series of words in a stadium. The server side will create a communication channel and decide what data to be sent. The client need to recognize its corresponding position, register itself with position and display the pattern after receiving the data from server side. The framwork can replace the old traditional ways of using glowing sticks or hand-written hard cardboard in a concert or in a sporting event.

Distributed display framework with mobile devices registered in fixed location

Today, sport games, concert, year-end party, etc become important places for people to entertain and social. People/ Fans eagerfor a better interaction with performers, instead of passive watching the game/ show.

Traditionally, people use light sticks and cheer sticks to have better participating experience, but that is just simple and boring. We propose a new way to enhance this by using our own mobile devices. By leveraging positioning technique and distributed display, people could have a better way to cheer and participate those events.

We would like audience in a big concert or in a sports stadium to have a better interaction experience. Our assumption is that the seats are fixed and each audience should register their seats using their mobile devices beforehand. When the stage sends out a computed graphical icon or a series of words in small pieces, audience can receive such incoming data via their already registered mobile devices. Combining all the individualpieces together we can see a complete picture of the message, such as a heart shape. This is to replace the old traditional ways of using glowing sticks or hand-written hard cardboard and this framework is our main claim point.

The advantages are:
1. Better stage interactions with the audience
2. Leveraging mobile devices with positioning method to better locate the seating status
3. Better audience experience to boost up the in house game/concert ticket selling

Assumption:


There is a basic assumption which help us focus on the specific problem we want to solve.

That is we assume the disclosure would be used in a stadium/ place that people would have fixed seats. Thus, people could register their mobile devices with corresponding positions to the system.

For example, when a fan walks into a basketball stadium for his favorite ball game, with our disclosure he could use his iphoneto scan the barcode on his seat.

Then, his iphone register itself with the fan's seat number to the server of this ball game.

Now, his iphone could receive the data and even music from the server of this ball game and he could enjo...
