Today, smartphones present a great variety of features and embed an important number of sensors (accelerometer,
touchscreen, light sensor, orientation sensor…). Created for giving context-aware abilities, these sensors also allow
new types of interaction like shaking the phone or changing its orientation. Such type of interaction reduces limitation
of mobile phones and paves the way to a great expansion of multimodal mobile interactions. Unfortunately, the
current context of mobile software development makes difficult the development of multimodal applications.
In this thesis, we intend to help developers to deal with this difficulty by providing a model-based solution that aims
to facilitate the development of multimodal mobile interfaces. We adopt the principles of the Model Driven
Engineering (MDE), which is particularly fitted for such context. Our proposition includes M4L (Mobile
MultiModality Modeling Language) modeling language to model the (input/output) multimodal interactions and the
MIMIC (MobIle MultImodality Creator) framework that allows the graphical modeling and automatic generation of
multimodal mobile interfaces. Our approach respects the main criteria of the MDE in order to define an efficient
model-based approach.
The results of our evaluations suggest that using our approach facilitates the development of sensor-based multimodal
mobile interfaces.
With our contributions, we aim to facilitate the penetration of multimodal applications and benefit from their
