In recent years monocular SLAM has produced algorithms for robust real-time 3D scene modeling and camera motion estimation which have been validated experimentally using low cost hand-held cameras and standard laptops. Our contribution is to extend monocular SLAM methods to deal with images coming from a hand-held standard monocular endoscope. With the… (More)
This paper presents some aspects in our research in the design of an ITS for teaching elementary mathematics concepts, such as the addition operation, as a learning tool for children with Down´s Syndrome.
This paper examines key issues involving the interaction, design and usability of a digital whiteboard interface to support Down syndrome (DS) students in their learning of addition and subtraction algorithms. The research goals include (a) to identify the main interaction difficulties present when executing addition and subtraction operations and (b) to… (More)
EMATIC project (Mathematics Education through ICT) is a multi-device Intelligent Tutorial System (ITS) focused on the teaching of mathematics, especially for children with educational difficulties. Logical thinking and learning different aspects of basic math are the main learning goals of EMATIC. Also, EMATIC allows students to perform non-repetitively the… (More)
