The role of kinesthetic reference frames in two-handed input performance

Ravin Balakrishnan, Ken Hinckley
1999 Proceedings of the 12th annual ACM symposium on User interface software and technology - UIST '99  
Not only are the hands disjoint from the display space, but the reference frames of the hands may in fact be disjoint from one another if two separate input devices (e.g. two mice) are used for twohanded  ...  In general, we refer to the workspace and origin within which the hands operate as kinesthetic reference frames.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS We thank Gordon Kurtenbach, George Fitzmaurice, and Russell Owen for valuable discussions and assistance during the course of this work.  ...

When Kinesthesia Becomes Visual: A Theoretical Justification for Executing Motor Tasks in Visual Space

Michele Tagliabue, Joseph McIntyre, Robert J. van Beers
2013 PLoS ONE  
In our previous studies, however, we did not observe any role of a visual representation of the movement in a purely kinesthetic task.  ...  To test this hypothesis we asked subjects to perform the same purely kinesthetic task in two conditions: INTRA and INTER.  ...  Acknowledgments We gratefully acknowledge the support of the Paris Descartes Platform for Sensorimotor Studies (Université Paris Descartes, CNRS, INSERM, Région Île-de-France) for the performance of the  ...

Eye-Hand Coordination during Dynamic Visuomotor Rotations

Lorenzo Masia, Maura Casadio, Giulio Sandini, Pietro Morasso, Paul L. Gribble
2009 PLoS ONE  
We compared movements in which the frames of reference were aligned (unperturbed condition) with movements performed under different combinations of visual/kinesthetic dynamic perturbations.  ...  The visual frame of reference was centered to the computer screen, while the kinesthetic frame was centered around the wrist joint.  ...  Acknowledgments This work was carried out at the Human Behaviour Laboratory (Robotics Brain and Cognitive Sciences) of Italian Institute of Technology.  ...

Necessity is the Mother of Invention: Reconstructing Missing Sensory Information in Multiple, Concurrent Reference Frames for Eye-Hand Coordination

M. Tagliabue, J. McIntyre
2011 Journal of Neuroscience  
When aligning the hand to grasp an object, the CNS combines multiple sensory inputs encoded in multiple reference frames.  ...  We used a novel technique of imposing conflict between external visual and gravito-kinesthetic reference frames when subjects tilted the head during an instructed memory delay.  ...  The same reasoning should apply when both visual and kinesthetic information about the hand are available (V-VK and K-VK), i.e., the comparison should be performed in the reference frame of the target.  ...

An integrative model of visual control of action

Elton Hiroshi Matsushima
2020 Psicologia em Pesquisa  
Within these models, the calibration between visual signals and vestibulo-kinesthetic signals is of fundamental importance, especially in the case of visually directed tasks.  ...  The present study offers an integrative proposal of a model of visual control of action, specifically in relation to the visually directed tasks.  ...  The threshold position of referent body configuration can be considered as the origin of a frame of reference comprised of all-possible body configurations represented in this frame of reference (Paillard  ...

Cleaning tasks knowledge transfer between heterogeneous robots: a deep learning approach [article]

Jaeseok Kim, Nino Cauli, Pedro Vicente, Bruno Damas, Alexandre Bernardino, José Santos-Victor, Filippo Cavallo
2019 arXiv   pre-print
To demonstrate the viability of the proposed approach, a network trained in Lisbon to perform cleaning tasks, using the iCub robot, is successfully employed by the DoRo robot in Peccioli, Italy.  ...  In this paper a robot is taught to perform two different cleaning tasks over a table, using a learning from demonstration paradigm.  ...  We acknowledge the support of NVIDIA Corporation with the donation of the GPU used for this research.  ...

Body Context and Posture Affect Mental Imagery of Hands

Silvio Ionta, David Perruchoud, Bogdan Draganski, Olaf Blanke, Ramesh Balasubramaniam
2012 PLoS ONE  
However the role of specific visual stimuli properties related to body context and posture in mental imagery is still under debate.  ...  The present data suggest that, with respect to hands-only, mental rotation of hands-on-body is less dependent on biomechanical constraints and proprioceptive input.  ...  Performed the experiments: SI DP. Analyzed the data: SI DP. Wrote the paper: SI BD OB.  ...

The Role of the Sensorimotor System in Cognitive Functions

Laila Craighero
2022 Brain Sciences  
The discovery of neurons with sensory properties in frontal motor circuits, and the discovery that these circuits send modulatory signals to the sensory parietal areas, strongly challenged the classical  ...  idea of a motor system as a mere executor of commands, and suggested that the sensorimotor system may contribute to the cognitive processes necessary for interaction with the world. [...]  ...  However, MI can be performed by distinct modalities, with the two most common modalities engaging kinesthetic and visual sensory experiences.  ...

The aim of our work is to uncover the influence of those sensory modalities on cortical processing.  ...  Participants traversed one leg of a triangle, turned on the spot, continued along the second leg, and finally indicated the location of their starting position.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The authors would like to thank Maria Marchante Fernandez for her help designing the project.  ...

The Human Dorsal Action Control System Develops in the Absence of Vision

K. Fiehler, M. Burke, S. Bien, B. Roder, F. Rosler
2008 Cerebral Cortex  
Using functional magnetic resonance imaging, we investigated the pattern of cortical activation in congenitally blind and matched blindfolded sighted adults while performing kinesthetically guided hand  ...  This favors the idea of a general mechanism of movement control that operates regardless of the sensory input modality.  ...  We thank Franz-Josef Visse and Judith Tacke for their help in recruiting blind participants and Annerose Engel for thoughtful discussions about the experimental design.  ...

Pragmatic Frames for Teaching and Learning in Human–Robot Interaction: Review and Challenges

Anna-Lisa Vollmer, Britta Wrede, Katharina J. Rohlfing, Pierre-Yves Oudeyer
2016 Frontiers in Neurorobotics  
In particular, we explain that two central features of human pragmatic frames, mostly absent of existing HRI studies, are that (1) social peers use rich repertoires of frames, potentially combined together  ...  After defining and discussing the concept of pragmatic frames, grounded in decades of research in developmental psychology, we study a selection of HRI work in the literature which has focused on learning-teaching  ...  This research was partially supported by the Cluster of Excellence Cognitive Interaction Technology "CITEC" (EXC 277) at Bielefeld University, which is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG).  ...

Separating haptic guidance from task dynamics: A practical solution via cutaneous devices

Evan Pezent, Simone Fani, Joshua Bradley, Matteo Bianchi, Marcia K. O'Malley
2018 2018 IEEE Haptics Symposium (HAPTICS)  
The efficacies of each guidance condition are compared by examining subject performance and learning rates.  ...  To assist subjects, guidance cues were provided in one of three forms: (1) cutaneous forces from a wearable skin-stretch device on the ipsilateral forearm and (2) contralateral forearm, and (3) kinesthetic  ...  Performance under kinesthetic guidance improved very little over the course of the experiment.  ...
