  • Gesture recognition for manipulation in artificial realities
    • Abstract: 1995
      Publication year: 1995
      Source:Advances in Human Factors/Ergonomics, Volume 20

      In [1], we conclude that the flexible manipulation, by a human operator, of virtual objects in artificial realities is augmented by a gesture interface. Such an interface is described here and it can recognise static gestures, posture-based dynamic gestures, pose-based dynamic gestures, a “virtual control panel” involving posture and pose and simple pose-based trajectory analysis of postures. The interface is based on a novel, application independent technique for recognising gestures. Gestures are represented by what we term approximate splines, sequences of critical points (local minima and maxima) of the motion of degrees of freedom of the hand and wrist. This scheme allows more flexibility in matching a gesture performance spatially and temporally and reduces the computation required, compared with a full spline curve fitting approach. Training the gesture set is accomplished through the interactive presentation of a small number of samples of each gesture.

  • Hand gesture recognition using computer vision based on model-matching
           method
    • Abstract: 1995
      Publication year: 1995
      Source:Advances in Human Factors/Ergonomics, Volume 20

      This paper proposes a method of 3-D model-based hand pose recognition from monocular silhouette image sequences. The principle of the method is to search for the hand pose which matches best to a silhouette in an image among possible candidates generated from the 3-D hand model. The number of candidates is reduced by considering the locations of features extracted from the silhouette, the prior probability of shape appearance, and the sensitivity of the shape change to the model parameter change. In addition, the multiple solutions are preserved to obtain the globally optimal solution over a long sequence.

  • A human-computer dialogue agent with body gestures, hand motion, and
           speech
    • Abstract: 1995
      Publication year: 1995
      Source:Advances in Human Factors/Ergonomics, Volume 20

      This paper presents an anthropomorphic dialogue agent system with human-like motion generation, which enables us to communicate with computer in nonverbal way. Some of motions of body, head, and hands are controlled based on the database extracted by analyzing the actual behavior of news announcers, movie stars, and puppets in conversational situations. As an experiment, the system integrated with voice input and output was implemented for CG Librarian, with the ability to guide and help users in the virtual library environment.

  • Agent-typed multimodal interface using speech, pointing gestures and CG
    • Abstract: 1995
      Publication year: 1995
      Source:Advances in Human Factors/Ergonomics, Volume 20

      This paper proposes a sophisticated agent-typed user interface using speech, pointing gestures and CG technologies. An “Agent-typed Interior Design System” has been implemented as a prototype for evaluating the proposed agent-typed interface, which has speech and pointing gestures as input modalities, and in which the agent is realized by 3 dimensional CG (3-D CG) and speech guidance. In this paper, the details of system implementation and evaluation results, which clarified the effectiveness of the agent-typed interface, are described.

    • Abstract: 1995
      Publication year: 1995
      Source:Advances in Human Factors/Ergonomics, Volume 20

      In this paper, cognitive mechanism in human being is examined by measuring human's eye movement. A series of extending a Fisher's ambiguous figures is used as visual stimulus. During the experimental session, subject's eye movement is measured by eye mark recorder, and eye fixation time, the number of times in eye fixation, eye movement velocity are calculated. On the basis of these data, internal cognitive mechanism in human being is discussed.

      Publication year: 1995
      Source:Advances in Human Factors/Ergonomics, Volume 20

      New video handling techniques are indispensable for easier human-video interaction. In this paper, a new approach to video handling based on auditory information is proposed. Musical sound and voiced sound are detected by means of spectrum analysis from the sound track of video data, and a sound browsing interface is developed. Presence of the detected sound is indicated on the interface using appropriate images and coloured indicators. The interface provides an intuitive browsing environment in which users can randomly access to the desired sound by selecting the images.

  • The intelligibility of time-compressed digital-video lectures
    • Abstract: 1995
      Publication year: 1995
      Source:Advances in Human Factors/Ergonomics, Volume 20

      In Education, videotaped lectures are widely used. Time-compressed videotaped lectures are lectures that are played back in less time than the original recording. This paper first reviews the literature on time-compressed video. The SPECIAL System II is then described. It is a computer application that allows learners to have an iconic index into digitally-recorded videotaped lectures. The most unique aspect of the system is that the learner has control of the percentage of timecompression. Finally, a formal experiment is described in which the maximum percentage of time-compression that would be useful to provide for the user was determined.

  • TacTool: a tactile rapid prototyping tool for visual interfaces
    • Abstract: 1995
      Publication year: 1995
      Source:Advances in Human Factors/Ergonomics, Volume 20

      This paper describes the TacTool development tool and input device for designing and evaluating visual user interfaces with tactile feedback. TacTool is currently supported by the IPO trackball with force feedback in the x and y directions. The tool is designed to enable both the designer and the user to apply and create tactile fields in a user interface with no knowledge of computer programming. The user works with a set of tactile object fields called TouchCons™ and visual representations to build a graphical interface with tactile feedback. Direct manipulation of objects enables creation of new complex fields which can be used for informational and navigational purposes. For example, the user can use a “path” object to draw a road which can be subsequently felt as a tactile channel, or a “hole” object which contains forces towards the centre of the hole. Tactile fields can be placed while an application is running; for example, a “tactile marker” can be placed to mark a significant point. A pulling force back towards this point can be always active or produced upon request. In addition to tactile feedback, TouchCons™ can provide active movement cues. For example, a “hint” field is used to a create tactile directional cue which is a system-driven ball movement. Tactile information can thus be used to support a two-way communication channel between the system and user.

  • Network Neuro-Baby with robotics hand An automatic facial expression
           synthesizer that responds to expressions of feeling in the human voice and
           handshake
    • Abstract: 1995
      Publication year: 1995
      Source:Advances in Human Factors/Ergonomics, Volume 20

      Neuro-Baby (NB) is a totally new type of interactive performance system which responds to the human voice with a computer-generated baby face and sound effects. Emotion space model is employed to categorize the feelings of the speaker. To recognize the human voice we used a neural network which has been taught the relationship between a set of digitized wave patterns and the location of several emotion types in the emotion space. The facial expression is synthesized continuously according to the location which the neural network generates. The flexible design of NB is possible by changing the facial design, the layout in the emotion space, sensitivity to the transition of the feelings or the teaching pattern for the neural network. By networking NB's, we can enjoy a non-verbal communication with each other. Such a Networked NB's will help the mutual understanding, absorption of cultural gap as well as international cultural exchange very much. The first result will be demonstrated in 1995, by connecting two NB's between Japan and USA. The networking issues concerning such a system is also addressed.

  • Conception of bioadaptable children's computer toys
    • Abstract: 1995
      Publication year: 1995
      Source:Advances in Human Factors/Ergonomics, Volume 20

      The paper considers algorithms for new generation of children's toys - bioadaptable toys. Basing on the analysis of physiological and/or psychophysiological parameters a functional state or behaviour response of a child are interpreted at a specified time moment, and depending on their values an adequate (corresponding to the set objective) control algorithm of a toy “behaviour” is generated. The toy “behaviour” is considered as a semantic biofeedback organization, and hence can be used for a functional state correction of a child.

  • A Media supported playland and interactions among players
    • Abstract: 1995
      Publication year: 1995
      Source:Advances in Human Factors/Ergonomics, Volume 20

      In this paper, we propose a new type of participatory entertainment using video images. In this entertainment, a player overlaps his self image on background picture and controls it spatially. A spatial control system of the self image is examined. By using this system, we evaluate the difficulty of moving the self image to the desired direction and locating it in the appropriate location. In spite of this difficulty, it is enjoyable enough to play with overlapped images. Furthermore, watching such images with other people might be more interesting. There are persons who want to show their overlapped images or persons who want to watch the other persons' overlapped images. There are interactions among these persons through the overlapped images.

      This paper describes the overview of the Virtual Performer which is designed to compose and perform interactive multimedia arts with it. The Virtual Performer consists of sensory facilities, presentation facilities and authoring facilities. The sensory facilities consist of various transducers units Its plug-in style offers users the free and optimal set up of sensors. The presentation facilities are MIDI, digital sound processing, CG generation and interactive Video controls. The authoring facilities offer two ways to design scenarios. One is to write recognition-action rules. The other is normal sequencing technique. It is mainly used to switch the scene and the former is mainly used to model the world of each scene. This paper shows some ongoing activities to produce multimedia art with the virtual Performer.

  • Human-system interaction based on active objects
    • Abstract: 1995
      Publication year: 1995
      Source:Advances in Human Factors/Ergonomics, Volume 20

      Virtual world applications pose a number of challenging problems concerning Human-System Interaction. In this type of system, the interface is a direct representation of the system state. Objects at the interface level have a direct correspondence with objects within the virtual world, which are inherently active. A new conceptual framework is required, and further research is needed to solve some of the problems (like multiple inheritance of behaviour) that arise when applying object orientation to active interface objects. Games and simulation systems represent an excellent testing ground in this sense.

      The use of modern computers by the visually handicapped has become more difficult over the past few years. In earlier systems the user interface was a simple character based environment. In those systems, simple devices like screen readers, braille output and speech synthesizers were effective. Current systems now run Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) which have rendered these simple aids almost use-less. What has become an enabling technology for the sighted computer user is rapidly becoming a disabling technology for the visually impaired.

      Kansei Engineering is defined as “translating technology of a consumer' s feeling and image for a product into design elements” (Nagamachi, 1989). There are two type of the Kansei Engineering System (KES), one for the consumer decision supporting system called the Forward KES, and another for designer supporting system called the Backward KES. The combined computerized system of the Forward KES and Backward KES must be the powerful supporting tools for both users. This paper introduces the structure of the combined system, and proposes the Hybrid KES as the new general framework of Kansei Engineering System.

      In Kansei engineering, several multivariate analyses are used for analyzing human feelings and building rules. Principal component analysis is used for analyzing semantic structure. Although this method is reliable, they are time and computing resource consuming and require user's statistical expertise. In this paper, we introduce an automatic semantic structure analyzer and Kansei expert systems builder using self-organizing neural networks, ART1.5-SSS and PCAnet. ART1.5-SSS is our modified version of ART 1.5, a variant of the Adaptive Resonance Theory neural network. It is used as a stable non-hierarchical cluster analyzer and feature extractor, even in a small sample size condition. PCAnet is based on Sanger (1989), it performs principal component analysis. These networks enable quick and automatic rule building in Kansei engineering expert systems.

      Kansei engineering is a discipline that concerns the creation of products that convey a certain desired image to customers, based on research into the relationships between the perceived impression of a product and its physical properties such as color or shape. This paper presents the results of a study concerning the classification of the features of products which tend to incorporate specialized or subjective elements. An attempt was made in this study to use image recognition technology to judge and classify the physical properties, i.e., design elements, of the automotive steering wheel automatically in order to eliminate any subjective aspects.

      Source:Advances in Human Factors/Ergonomics, Volume 20

      To evaluate ergonomic comfort, we constructed a climate chamber equipped with a computer-assisted system for measuring physiological responses and psychological effects. This climate chamber is necessary to study the the effect of thermal environments on the occupants. The condition of the chamber is determined by four parameters: air temperature, air velocity, relative humidity, and wall radiation. We can control these parameters remotely from a control room using a computer. The general method for evaluating the effects of thermal environment is to measure electroencephalograms, electrocardiograms, and subjects' vote. These data can be acquired and analyzed in the control room for automatic control and analysis using another computer with original programs.

      Source:Advances in Human Factors/Ergonomics, Volume 20

      Using Virtual Reality (VR) technology, Matsushita Electric Works, Ltd. has been developing several application systems for industrial use since 1990. And since 1991, we have used a VR kitchen system to assist our customers in planning kitchens with our kitchen products. This system has been used by many customers and it caused the sales of our kitchen products to soar. As the next version of our VR kitchen system, the Kansei VR system is being developed by employing Kansei Engineering [Nagamachi, 1986]. This engineering strategy takes the consumers' qualitative preferences of kitchen layout, design, and decoration and produces an actual kitchen layout, complete with materials and decoration. This enables the customers to have a concrete image of the kitchens which will be built, and also enables them to see and touch the kitchen components in the virtual space. In order to take the consumers' idea of an ideal kitchen layout, and convert that to an actual three-dimensional layout, we had some investigations with our customers. As Kansei information, we used adjectives which express the atmosphere of the kitchen and consumers' lifestyle. This paper presents a detailed overview of the Kansei VR system and the results of the Kansei investigations.

      We propose a multimodal interface system that allows the use of speech and simple gesture commands for a user. To command by gesture, the user takes a stick and moves it. Voice commands express verbs, adjectives and names. A combination of these two modalities can provide a powerful and flexible communication environment.

  • A Multi-modal interface with speech and touch screen
    • Abstract: 1995
      Publication year: 1995
      Source:Advances in Human Factors/Ergonomics, Volume 20

      A multi-modal input method by combining speech and touch-screen was studied. Since these two methods are complementary to each other, they can be used together to create more user-friendly human interface. To illustrate this, a multi-modal robot control simulation system was built on the Sun Sparc10 using the attached AD converter with 11.025kHz sampling rate. The task was defined as follows: An operator can operate the robot in the computer world by giving commands to the pseudo robot mapped on the display. To evaluate this system, the robot control simulation system using only the speech input method and a similar system using only the touch-screen input method were also developed. Six novice subjects performed two given tasks by using three input methods. After evaluating theses systems, it was found out that the multi-modal system incorporating both speech input and touch-screen input was able to cover up the deficiencies that were present when using only touch-screen input.

      This paper addresses the question of multimodality applied to operational systems intended for professional users in charge of difficult and stressful tasks. For this type of application, the efficiency brought by a multimodal interface not only follows from the naturalness of the interaction but from the match between the communication modalities and the task to be performed. We report our experience in the design and prototyping of SECOM's Centralized Security System (CSS), a multimodal operational system for security services.

      The current generation of multimedia systems can store and retrieve files containing textual and image data. Apart from a narrow range of textual data, current systems regard all other data types as unstructured data. We propose a system for unstructured multimedia information, based on free lexical descriptions of the multimedia objects to be stored in the system. The retrieval operates then on the descriptors interlinked to a hypertext structure by making use of an information filter.

      In general, current research in virtual reality technology concentrates on providing better visualization and manipulation devices or methods. However, virtual environments have enormous potential as artificial media for communication of creative ideas. This paper describes some aspects of a system that enhances creativity and communication of creative ideas. The system is based on an intuitive multi-modal interface that combines simple hand gestures with speech information to produce instantaneous visual feedback of interpretations of the intention in the interactions. The paper also identifies the need to create ontologies of 3D shapes as the basis for the interpretation of intentions and proposes a two-level representation for such purpose.

  • Non-Vocal behaviors in communication and coordination of TV conferences

      In spite of general emphasis on the significance of facial expressions and nonverbal cues in communication, experiences of using TV conference have not confirmed any notable enhancement in communication by introduction of talking head video of conference participants. In the previous paper, authors have reported some evaluation methods using conference model. Although the participants used the visual and non-verbal behaviors actually, most of the communications were done by verbal language. Thus absolute need to initiate non-vocal behavior was not built in the models. This paper proposes an elaborated conference model in which active non-vocal actions, such as show-hands or janken(toss) are expected to occur in the sessions.

  • Effects of pitch adaptation in prosody on human-machine verbal
           communication
    • Abstract: 1995
      Publication year: 1995
      Source:Advances in Human Factors/Ergonomics, Volume 20

      A machine which adapts to the optimal speech characteristics of a human speaker would be useful for smooth human-machine verbal communication. This paper focuses on the fundamental period of speech in pitch structure for prosodic adaptation and discusses the relationship between the fundamental period of a speaker's utterance and the fundamental period of the speaker's own preferable listening. From the results of sensory evaluation by paired comparison of varied fundamental periods, it is found that the mean fundamental period is preferred as listening fundamental period, independent of the speaker's utterance fundamental period. In consideration of the previous results of temporal adaptation, it is concluded that the prosodic adaptation in temporal structure, such as the speech activity adaptation, is effective in human-machine verbal communication, while for the adaptation of the fundamental period in pitch structure, it is sufficient that the machine's output fundamental period is set at the mean value.

  • Interface alternatives for hypertext environments
    • Abstract: 1995

      Source:Advances in Human Factors/Ergonomics, Volume 20

      This paper seeks to make explicit the ranges of design choices among which authors select whenever they create a particular hypertext. It is suggested that the interface characteristics which are most helpful for hypertexts written as tutorials may differ from those design features which benefit users wishing to gain access through hypertexts to large (encyclopaedic) information sources, or hypertexts used by people as a means of personal information management. Although there is little evidence about which design features work best in which circumstances, an understanding of the range of interface options may help authors appreciate the trade-offs they often have to make when designing hypertexts.

      A proposed classification of information in hypermedia documents into hypermedia, interfaces, end nodes and embellishments is used as a basis for raising some questions concerning usability of networked hypermedia on the WWW. An experiment was conducted in order to see if embellishments, here defined as document elements that have a decorative function, enhance memory of hypermedia documents. The results showed better recall of document names and a tendency to better recall of document content for documents with embellishments. However, many other factors are at play, and in a networked environment document transfer time also has to be taken into account.

  • Usability problems with network hypermedia

      Source:Advances in Human Factors/Ergonomics, Volume 20

      The objective of the study presented here was to investigate usability problems encountered by people using the Mosaic browser for accessing the World Wide Web (WWW). It was found that 48% of the observed problems could be attributed to the implementation of the browser, mainly problems caused by improper feedback. Another 52% of the observed problems could be attributed to the design of the documents, mainly problems related to structure and presentation. New browsers might eliminate some of the problems observed with Mosaic. Still, the need remains for more precise and complete guidelines for hypermedia document design in order to assist content producers in improving the overall usability of the WWW.

  • Using discourse to aid hypertext navigation
    • Abstract: 1995
      Publication year: 1995
      Source:Advances in Human Factors/Ergonomics, Volume 20

      Hyper-media is about following links, but this obliges readers to track what they have and have not seen. Navigating within a document can be a significant task, which, if not done well enough, can leave one ‘lost in hyperspace’. Displaying the structure of a hyper-document is one way of helping readers move through it. But we have adopted an alternative approach, as advocated by Neilsen [1]. Guided by ideas from Discourse Theory, we are trying to recognise the structure of the reader's own interaction with the system. We have created DS-Info, an enhanced version of the Info hypertext system within the Emacs editor. DS-Info uses the distinction between structural and cross-structural links to identify topics and digressions. We are currently empirically evaluating DS-Info. Preliminary results are encouraging.

      This paper discusses the effect of adapting hypertext to the learner. Cognitive overhead and disorientation limit the effectiveness of hypertext for learning. By cognitively adapting a hypertext system to the user and by providing instructional cues, the effects of these problems might be reduced. A quasiexperimental evaluation study is reported, with a view to testing the efficacy of this theory.

           approach
    • Abstract: 1995
      Publication year: 1995
      Source:Advances in Human Factors/Ergonomics, Volume 20

      In this paper we present a novel approach for specifying the interface aspects of a hypermedia application with Data Views. Using Data Views (ADV) it is possible to describe, in an implementation-independent way, important aspects of the design such as which media objects the user of the hypermedia application will perceive, in which way the user will interact with these objects, and which interface transformation will take place while navigating through the hypermedia. ADVs are presented in the context of an object-oriented hypermedia design method (OOHDM). We briefly discuss which design problems must be solved in order to specify the interface of a hypermedia application; then we present Configuration Diagrams as a design tool to specify the static relationships between interface objects and nodes in a hypermedia application. ADVcharts, a notation combining concepts from Statecharts, Objectcharts and Petri Nets are later presented as a formalism to specify the dynamic aspects of a hypermedia application. We finally discuss some further issues such as reuse in the large of interface models
