We propose a novel concept for navigation for bicyclists based on 3D-audio. The concept has been implemented in a prototype and evaluated in a small user test. The results indicate a hopeful future for audio-based navigation for bicyclists.
Children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD)have marked impairments in social interaction. Imitation is a basic social interaction behavior, and mimicking as an element of imitation can be a diagnostic marker for autism and thus a skill that can be targeted by behavioral training. In a comparative study between children with and without autism (n=20), we… (More)
— In this paper we present an algorithm that allows a human to naturally and easily teach a mobile robot how to recognize objects in its environment. The human selects the object by pointing at it using a laser pointer. The robot recognizes the laser reflections with its cameras and uses this data to generate an initial 2D segmentation of the object. The 3D… (More)
We present an exploratory study that compared user feedback obtained from evaluating a mobile application versus a reverse engineered video prototype of this same application. The comparison included qualitative and quantitative data analysis. Questionnaire responses regarding user acceptance (UTAUT ) and the overall user experience (AttrakDiff )… (More)
