An important aspect of Ubiquitous Computing (UbiComp) is augmenting people and environments with computational resources which provide information and services unobtrusively whenever and wherever required. In line with the vision of UbiComp, the authors have developed a multi-user location-awareness system by following a user-centred design and evaluation approach. In this paper, they discuss the development of the system that allows users to share informative feedback about their current geographical location. Most importantly, the proposed system is to be integrated in the smart-home environment by portraying location-awareness information on a peripheral display.
