Virtual Fixtures in VR - Perceptual Overlays for Assisted Teleoperation, Teleprogramming and Learning
Virtual Fixtures in VR - Perceptual Overlays for Assisted Teleoperation, Teleprogramming and Learning (The Eurographics Association, 2018)Current advances in mixed reality (MR) technology achieves both, making the sensations more immersive and plausible, but also increase the utilization of these technologies in robotics. Their low-cost and the low effort ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2018)Augmented Reality (AR) is a strong growing research topic in several areas including industry, training, art and entertainment. AR can help users to achieve very complex tasks by enhancing their vision with useful and ...
Blowing in the Wind: Increasing Copresence with a Virtual Human via Airflow Influence in Augmented Reality (The Eurographics Association, 2018)In a social context where two or more interlocutors interact with each other in the same space, one's sense of copresence with the others is an important factor for the quality of communication and engagement in the ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2018)Augmented Reality (AR) on consumer devices is now commonplace and it finds application in areas like online retail and gaming. Among which, school education can especially benefit from the interactivity and expressiveness ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2018)A self-sports learning system that provides users with real-time multimodal feedback about differences between a user's motion and an expert's motion is proposed. We also propose the Decayed Dynamic Time Warping algorithm, ...
Studying Levels of Presence in a Virtual Environment Simulating Drug Use in Schools: Effect on Different Character Perspectives (The Eurographics Association, 2018)This paper studies the aspect of presence in a Virtual Reality (VR) environment that can be used for training purposes in the education sector and more specifically for teacher training and professional development. During ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2018)Recovery of upper-body fine-motor skills after brain trauma, e.g. after a stroke, involves a long process of movement rehabilitation. When the arms and hands are affected patients often spend many hours exercising in order ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2018)Virtual reality applications (VRA) with 3D sounds on smartphones were used by six blind adults for indoor navigation. Each application provided users with three audio outputs with linear, logarithmic and customized response ...
A Scoping Review Exploring the Feasibility of Virtual Reality Technology Use with Individuals Living with Dementia (The Eurographics Association, 2018)The existing evidence base in relation to the feasibility of using Virtual Reality technology systems with individuals living with a dementia appeared limited and was therefore explored. The research was collected and ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2018)While augmented reality (AR) can be valuable in therapy with people with dementia (PwD), when designing an AR system for PwD, it is important to understand how PwD interact with to such systems. Here we discuss an experiment ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2018)This paper proposes a system capable of presenting softness using a touch panel. Many studies of touch panel-based haptic displays have developed methods for manipulating macro-roughness (shape), fine-roughness (texture), ...
