  • POINTING DEVICES FOR WEARABLE COMPUTERS
    Andres A Calvo, Saverio Perugini    Download Full Text

    We present a survey of pointing devices for wearable computers, which are body-mounted devices that users can access at any time. Since traditional pointing devices (i.e., mouse, touchpad, and trackpoint) were designed to be used on a steady and flat surface they are inappropriate for wearable computers. Just as the advent of laptops resulted in the development of the touchpad and trackpoint, t...

  • INTERACTION TASKS AND CONTROLS FOR PUBLIC DISPLAY APPLICATIONS
    Jorge C S Cardoso, Rui Jose    Download Full Text

    Public displays are becoming increasingly interactive and a broad range of interaction mechanisms can now be used to create multiple forms of interaction. However, the lack of interaction abstractions forces each developer to create specific approaches for dealing with interaction, preventing users frombuilding consistent expectations on how to interact across different display systems. There is a...

  • USERS BEHAVIOR IN LOCATION-AWARE SERVICES: DIGITAL NATIVES VERSUS DIGITAL IMMIGRANTS
    Marco Furini    Download Full Text

    Location-aware services may expose users to privacy risks as they usually attach user’s location to the generated contents. Different studies have focused on privacy in location-aware services, but the results are often conflicting. Our hypothesis is that users are not fully aware of the features of the location-aware scenario and this lack of knowledge affects the results. Hence, in this paper ...

  • BLIND SAILORS’ SPATIAL REPRESENTATION USING AN ON-BOARD FORCE FEEDBACK ARM: TWO CASE STUDIES
    Mathieu Simonnet, Eamonn Ryall    Download Full Text

    Using a vocal, auditory, and haptic application designed for maritime navigation, blind sailors are able to set up and manage their voyages.However, investigation of themanner to present information remains a crucial issue to better understand spatial cognition and improve navigation without vision. In this study, we asked two participants to use SeaTouch on board and manage the ship headings d...

  • EFFECTS OF A SOCIAL ROBOT’S AUTONOMY AND GROUP ORIENTATION ON HUMAN DECISION-MAKING
    Pei-Luen Patrick Rau, Ye Li, Jun Liu    Download Full Text

    Social attributes of intelligent robots are important for human-robot systems.This paper investigates influences of robot autonomy (i.e., high versus low) and group orientation (i.e., ingroup versus outgroup) on a human decision-making process. We conducted a laboratory experiment with 48 college students and tested the hypotheses with MANCOVA. We find that a robot with high autonomy has greate...
