HeartBeat: Tactile Support for Keeping a Target Heart Rate

Janko Timmermann, Benjamin Poppinga, Wilko Heuten, Susanne Boll
2017 EAI Endorsed Transactions on Pervasive Health and Technology  
In this paper, we present the results of a less intrusive approach where heart rate zones are encoded with continuous vibro-tactile feedback.  ...  In a participatory design study, we obtained designs for tactile heart rate displays, and in a user study with 16 participants we evaluated one design in comparison to a common design.  ...  These simple vibro-tactile notifications fail to address the problem, because they still require users to look at a display to classify the information.  ...

Rethinking RFID

Nicolai Marquardt, Alex S. Taylor, Nicolas Villar, Saul Greenberg
2010 Proceedings of the 28th international conference on Human factors in computing systems - CHI '10  
Our tags provide reader awareness, where people get visual, audible, or tactile feedback as tags come into the range of RFID readers.  ...  The audible feedback tag uses a small piezzo speaker to generate an acoustic signal ( Figure 4 .2), while the tactile feedback tag uses a vibro-tactile motor connected to the tag whenever a reader is  ...  Indeed, a semi-passive design allows us to replace the piezzo speaker or vibro-tactile motor with a variety of other actuators (e.g., larger displays showing more details).  ...

LifeBelt: Silent Directional Guidance for Crowd Evacuation

Alois Ferscha, Kashif Zia
2009 2009 International Symposium on Wearable Computers  
In this paper we build on this evidence and propose a belt like wearable device for vibro tactile directional guidance, LifeBelt, to notify individuals in panic about exits.  ...  LIFEBELT The development of our LifeBelt [6] vibro-tactile wearable notification system was motivated by the threat of overseeing or overhearing in situations when human senses are exposed to an overload  ...  , receives an individualized optimized path plan (e.g. the way towards the exit with the chance of earliest escape), and guides the individual via vibro-tactile stimulation, indicating direction and distance  ...

Multisensory Immersive Analytics [chapter]

Jon McCormack, Jonathan C. Roberts, Benjamin Bach, Carla Dal Sasso Freitas, Takayuki Itoh, Christophe Hurter, Kim Marriott
2018 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
A common technique is to use tactile graphics, which are raised line drawings shown on some kind of tactile display.  ...  For example, a larger value can be mapped onto a darker color, a louder sound, or faster vibration on a vibro-tactile device.  ...

Subtle, Natural and Socially Acceptable Interaction Techniques for Ringterfaces — Finger-Ring Shaped User Interfaces [chapter]

Mikko J. Rissanen, Samantha Vu, Owen Noel Newton Fernando, Natalie Pang, Schubert Foo
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We highlight the need for studying context awareness in ambient intelligence environments and end-user programming in future research on ringterfaces.  ...  Output is usually provided via vibro-tactile or audio feedback. Only Telebeads and Pingu demonstrate visual feedback by showing lights of various colors which meaning the user needs to interpret.  ...  Thinking about the finger-ring particularly as a form factor does raise a question what a natural interaction using a ringterfaces should actually be like.  ...

Enabling the blind to see gestures

Francis Quek, Francisco Oliveira
2013 ACM Transactions on Computer-Human Interaction  
We employ a haptic glove interface to facilitate this embodiment awareness.  ...  Sighted students use vision for two purposes: access to graphical material and awareness of embodied behavior. This embodiment awareness keeps communication situated with visual material and speech.  ...  In his Guidelines for the use of vibro-tactile displays in human computer interaction, Van erp [265] suggests the examination of four parameters related to vibro-tactile perception: magnitude, frequency  ...

non-representational theory, we develop a partial vocabulary with which to engage with qualities of pedestrian mobility, and we outline how taking more mindful approaches to walking may enrich and inform the design space  ...  Using vibro-tactile feedback to make one conversation partner aware of another partner's footsteps, this feedback was sufficient on its own to create synchrony.  ...  The tactile qualities of many paths produce an interaction and reflection about one's balance that is necessarily mindful, as well as a practical and aesthetic awareness of textures underfoot and all around  ...
