Projects

  • CarVR: Enabling In-Car Virtual Reality Entertainment

    CarVR: Enabling In-Car Virtual Reality Entertainment

    CarVR enables virtual reality entertainmen in moving vehicles. We enhance the VR experience by matching kinesthetic forces of the car movements to the VR experience.

  • Carvatar

    Carvatar

    Carvatar was built to increase trust in automation through social cues. The prototype can imitate human behavior, such as a humanoid gaze behavior or by calling attention to specific situations. The avatar can be used to establish a cooperative communication between driver and vehicle.

  • Belt: An Unobtrusive Touch Input Device for Head-worn Displays

    Belt: An Unobtrusive Touch Input Device for Head-worn Displays

    Belt is a novel unobtrusive input device for wearable displays that incorporates a touch surface encircling the user’s hip. The wide input space is leveraged for a horizontal spatial mapping of quickly accessible information and applications. We discuss social implications and interaction capabilities for unobtrusive touch input and present our hardware implementation and a set of applications that benefit from the quick access time.
