In this paper, we discuss wearable interfaces for a computational memory-aid useful in everyday life. The aim of this study is to develop a Video Diary system with vision interfaces to aid in memory retrieval. The Video Diary system provides users with " Memory Retrieval, Exchange, and Transportation " through four types of indexes: 1) through the user's… (More)
In this paper we propose a wearable vision interface system named " I'm Here! " to support a user's remembrance of object location in everyday life. The system enables users to retrieve certain information from a video database that has recorded a set of the latest scenes of target objects which were held by the user and were observed from the users'… (More)
In this paper, we propose a feasible wearable system named Nice2CU to manage a person's augmented memory. For managing a person's augmented memory , an " easy registration " method and an " automatic update " method are necessary. We have designed a prototype system using a " Card and Mirror " interface.
People tend to forget where they placed an object, which is necessary to achieve a certain task, in their everyday circumstances. To support a user's object-finding tasks, we have proposed a wearable interface system named " I'm Here! " The system manages Augmented Memories, a video database of the user's viewpoint labeled with previously registered… (More)
We propose a high speed video retrieval algorithm with a hybrid-space image matching (HySIM) method. Our aim is to realize a location-based memory support system on a wearable computer suitable for everyday use. This HySIM algorithm has the following technical features; two different feature spaces and a control mechanism image matched against frequent… (More)
