We have constructed TATIN-PIC, a collaborative work environment consisting of an interactive tabletop and an interactive board, in order to explore phases beyond brain-storming in preliminary design. In this article, we present the TATIN-PIC platform, as well as our evaluation methodology which focuses on crucial face-to-face communication around the(More)
The recently launched TATIN-PIC Project at the University of Technology of Compiègne is a multi-modal collaborative work environment for teams performing preliminary design. In this paper, we present the design and reasoning for the plans of our groupware system. Effective preliminary design teamwork requires alternating stages of discussion,(More)
In recent years, there has been an increased interest for research on computer-supported cooperative work performed in collaborative interactive spaces. The TATIN-PIC project envisions a true multi-surface collaborative work environment with an interactive tabletop, an interactive board display, tablet PCs, and smartphones. In this paper, we first present(More)
Using vocal interfaces in complex applications leads to more intuitive interactions. At the University of Technology of Compiègne, we have built a collaborative environment from a large graphics table, interactive board and peripheral devices for supporting preliminary cooperative design. The environment support unique multimodal interaction through(More)
There exists a lack of comparative evaluations between interactive tabletops and their traditional counterparts due to the radically different nature of the two environments and the overly complex dynamics of collocated collaboration. We seek to address this gap in the literature with a preliminary comparative evaluation of the two paradigms. The most(More)
