  • The assistive input devices with intel ACAT system for the severe disabled

    The severe disabled have different states and course of disease, therefore, the input devices they used for the assistive system are not the same. In this study, according to the needs of the severe disabled, an assistive input device (AID) was designed and integrated with Intel Assistive Context-Aware Toolkit (ACAT) system for the severe disabled. Through the different input switches developed and AID by this research, the severely disabled can operate the Intel ACAT system steadily and quickly to communicate with others or complete the environmental control.

  • On 3D input devices

    We provide an overview of some of our input device developments, which we designed in response to the need for more advanced 3D interfaces. Some of our devices are more task-specific and others are more general, but all of them support six or more degrees of freedom (DOF) and work in three dimensions. In our work, we try to understand the essential requirements of individual tasks and task combinations to develop corresponding devices and interaction techniques. This is our way of developing input devices for the 3D domain that work better for certain application areas than 2D mouses, gloves, and wands.

  • Poster: Amplitude test for input devices for system control in immersive virtual environment

    In this study, the amplitudes best suited to compare four input devices are examined in the context of a pointer-based system control interface for immersive virtual environments. The interfaces are based on a pen and tablet, a touch tablet, hand-tracking using Kinect and a Wii Nunchuk analog stick. This is done as a preliminary study in order to be able to compare the interfaces with the goal of evaluating them in the context of using virtual environments in a class lecture. Five amplitudes are tested for each of the four interfaces by having test participants mark menu elements in an eight- part radial menu using each combination of amplitude and interface. The amplitudes to be used for future experiments were found. Also, the movement times for the interfaces do not fit the predictions of Fitts' law.

  • iPhone/iPod Touch as Input Devices for Navigation in Immersive Virtual Environments

    iPhone and iPod Touch are multi-touch handheld devices that provide new possibilities for interaction techniques. We describe iPhone/iPod Touch implementation of a navigation interaction technique originally developed for a larger multi-touch device (i.e. Lemur). The interaction technique implemented on an iPhone/iPod Touch was used for navigation tasks in a CAVE virtual environment. We performed a pilot study to measure the control accuracy and to observe how human subjects respond to the interaction technique on the iPhone and iPod Touch devices. We used the preliminary results to improve the design of the interaction technique.

  • Virtual input devices based on motion capture and collision detection

    The paper proposes virtual input devices based on collision detection for easy construction of interactive 3D graphics applications which use a motion capture system as a real time input device. Each virtual input device is composed from several collision sensor objects and an actuator object. These objects are software components represented as a visible object which users can manipulate on a computer screen. Each virtual input device has a certain metaphor associated with its role that is determined by location and composition structure of its components. Therefore, it is possible to define various virtual input devices easily only by combining several sensor objects and an actuator object through direct manipulations on a computer screen. The paper presents a realization mechanism and actual examples of virtual input devices.

  • Cartesian teleoperation of underwater manipulators using floating handle input devices

    Manipulators employed in the offshore industry are typically driven by master arms. Although these input devices only require simple algorithms to control the manipulator, as scaled down models of the manipulator they can provide to the operator only approximate control of its end effector. Their mechanical linkages contribute to poor ergonomics, often calling for two handed maneuvering. If available, re-indexing destroys their ability to afford configuration feedback and freeze facilities can result in large uncontrolled movements when released. The author looks at how advances in position sensing technology and cartesian space control strategies may yield benefits in operator control, working environment and efficiency, specifically considering floating handle input devices.<<ETX>>

  • Input Devices to Support Communication for People with Serious Disability

    Persons suffering from intractable disease like ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) and spinal cord injury often show deterioration in muscular function. Some of these patients are obliged to use artificial respirators and cannot have verbal communication with others. In order to support their communication, there exist various input devices like touch sensor input devices, capacitance sensor input devices and also vision input devices. In addition, computer controlled environment is helpful for such patients. By developing proper computer controlled environment which is controlled by the proper input device, even the patient with serious disability can live sound life. Due to the infrared network system, the computer controlled environment could be well organized.

  • Analysis of Involuntary Movements for Adapting Input Devices to People with Motor Impairments Based on 3-Axis Accelerometers

    People with motor impairments often need adaptation of input devices to interact with surrounding people and home-appliances via communication aids and environmental control systems. During the adaptation, a body part to be used, a device to be activated, its specific location, and a posture to use it should be decided by assessing accuracy and speed of motions. Additionally, the strength and frequency of involuntary movements should be taken into account. The successful adaptation is a key determinant to improve Quality of Life (QOL). However, the adaptation is carried out, in most cases, based on only subjective assessments. That is why, we are developing a quantitative method to detect involuntary movements and measure the adaptability of input devices. Our method is based on the root mean square (RMS) values of 3-axes accelerations. In our case studies, a set of accelerometers were attached to corresponding body parts to detect involuntary movements. The results indicate that the RMS values became higher when conspicuous involuntary movements observed. Special attention is paid to analyzing the RMS values in touch panel adaptation.

  • MIDS: micro input devices system using MEMS sensors

    The evolution of human-to-computer input devices lags far behind the evolution of processing power. In this paper, we present work on merging MEMS force sensors and existing wireless technologies to develop a novel multifunctional interface input system, the Micro Input Devices System (MIDS), which could potentially replace the mouse, the pen, and the keyboard as input devices to the computer. Moreover, initial experimental results indicate that further exploration of this technology could eventually produce a new control-input device for grasping robotic manipulators. We have thus far developed a prototype MIDS that consists of two MIDS rings, each packaged with commercial MEMS acceleration sensors to sense multi-axes motion, and a MIDS wrist watch that communicates with the rings and transmits data wirelessly to interface with a CPU. The system has been demonstrated to perform click and drawing motions successfully. A self-calibration method was also developed to resolve ambiguities in sensed motion for the MEMS sensors.

  • Mobile input devices for gaming experience

    There have been escalating research interests of gaming on mobile phones in recent years. However, little works have been done on testing and evaluating player experience in relation to mobile input devices. In mobile gaming context, input devices operate as an interface connector to enable players to interact with a game, which might affect player experience. In this study, we conducted an experiment to study the effect of player experience on two commonly used mobile input devices, which are soft keypad and hard keypad. The results showed that input devices do affect player gaming experience on different levels. It is noticeable that players prefer playing with hard keypad than soft keypad on selected game genres. We recommend a list of optimal mobile input and factors that inhibit player experience.
