Ambient Information Systems (AIS), permit a mode of expression that can easily exist at thelevel of subconscious realisation. Principles of cognition are usually aggregated under themain auditory, visual and often innovative tactile sensory impetus. AIS are designedprincipally for the aesthetic communication of non-critical information. This research focuses on the development of an Ambient Communication Experience (ACE) system. ACE is a synchronisation framework to provide co-ordinated connectivity across variousenvironmentally distributed devices via sensor data mapping. The intention is to facilitatelocation-independent and application-responsive screening for the user, leading to theconcept of technologically integrated spaces. Technologically integrated spaces have thepotential to change our perception of information and our behavioural interactions associated with its provision. The aim is to deliver contextual information without the need for direct user manipulation, and engagement at the level of peripheral perception.
