The physical appearance and behavior of a robot is an important asset in terms of Human-Computer Interaction. Multimodality is also fundamental, as we humans usually expect to interact in a natural way with voice, gestures, etc. People approach complex interaction devices with stances similar to those used in their interaction with other people. In this… (More)
This paper presents recognition results based on a PCA representation and classification with SVMs and temporal coherence.
Extracting eye movement events from raw data has become important upon the introduction of affordable eye trackers. The common approach in current algorithms is that they take into account velocity and position information separately. In this paper, we analyze the pros and cons of the current algorithms and introduce a novel algorithm based on the… (More)
We present a case study concerned with the animation of behavioral specifications through code generation for a payment system; namely, electronic funds transfer system (EFT). The exchange of messages between a central bank and two client banks during daily operations is modeled as a communications model of Live Sequence Charts (LSCs). Using an LSC to… (More)
In this paper, the introduction of a homeostatic regulation mechanism in a vision system is proposed. This homeostatic mechanism takes charge of controlling the luminance, white balance, contrast and size of the object of interest in the image, using naive methods except for the contrast, for which we have implemented a method that avoids the hill climbing… (More)
