Abstract Ambient Intelligence (AmI) environments are becoming prominent in everyday living as technological advancements are setting the reality of the ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT). Physical spaces with intelligent and intuitive interfaces embedded in everyday objects respond to the presence of people in a seamless and unobtrusive fashion. Yet, the majority of applications and research for AmI environments has set the focus on communicating information using the visual channel. Screens of various sizes (smartphones, tablets, projectors) are used to display information utilizing the already exhausted visual channel. The focus on the visual channel comes in partial contrast to the inconspicuous nature of AmI environments interfaces. In order to truly offer ubiquitous and multimodal interfaces to provide information, the auditory channel should be considered as well. Driven by the above considerations, ACOUSMA, a platform based on a micro-services architecture, was developed to allow effortless enhancement of AmI environments with personalized auditory displays. ACOUSMA consists of two system packages designed for interaction with three groups of users: a) auditory display experts, b) AmI application developers, and c) AmI environment end-users. Auditory display experts can generate, upload and share their designed auditory representations using an intuitive Content Management System. AmI application developers with no prior knowledge on the field can integrate and direct personalized, prompt auditory displays to any AmI environment user with minimum effort using a comprehensible application programming interface and an intelligent mechanism module. This intelligent module adopts and adapts to user preferences in real time, enabling conversion of any given semantic information into meaningful user-tailored auditory displays. Finally, AmI environment users can experience auditory displays that occur in the favorable place in a timely manner and can be adjusted according to their preferences. Usability evaluation from both experts and real users has shown that target user groups can benefit from using ACOUSMA as a platform to store and share auditory representations, as well as to provide personalized, meaningful and according to context auditory displays. Moreover, users could successfully and efficiently communicate their needs and adjust auditory displays using the intelligent mechanism module.
