Integrated online localization and navigation for people with visual impairments using smart phones
Ilias Apostolopoulos, Navid Fallah, Eelke Folmer, Kostas E. Bekris
Article No.: 21
Indoor localization and navigation systems for individuals with Visual Impairments (VIs) typically rely upon extensive augmentation of the physical space, significant computational resources, or heavy and expensive sensors; thus, few systems have...
Fluid gesture interaction design: Applications of continuous recognition for the design of modern gestural interfaces
Bruno Zamborlin, Frederic Bevilacqua, Marco Gillies, Mark D'inverno
Article No.: 22
This article presents Gesture Interaction DEsigner (GIDE), an innovative application for gesture recognition. Instead of recognizing gestures only after they have been entirely completed, as happens in classic gesture recognition systems, GIDE...
We present a series of projects for end-user authoring of interactive robotic behaviors, with a particular focus on the style of those behaviors: we call this approach Style-by-Demonstration (SBD). We provide an overview introduction of...
