CAPturAR: An Augmented Reality Tool for Authoring Human-Involved Context-Aware Applications

CAPturAR: An Augmented Reality Tool for Authoring Human-Involved Context-Aware Applications

Recognition of human behavior plays an important role in context-aware applications. However, it is still a challenge for end-users to build personalized applications that accurately recognize their own activities. Therefore, we present CAPturAR, an in-situ...
Vipo: Spatial-Visual Programming with Functions for Robot-IoT Workflows

Vipo: Spatial-Visual Programming with Functions for Robot-IoT Workflows

Mobile robots and IoT (Internet of Things) devices can increase productivity, but only if they can be programmed by workers who understand the domain. This is especially true in manufacturing. Visual programming in the spatial context of the operating environment can...
An Exploratory Study of Augmented Reality Presence for Tutoring Machine Tasks

An Exploratory Study of Augmented Reality Presence for Tutoring Machine Tasks

Machine tasks in workshops or factories are often a compound sequence of local, spatial, and body-coordinated human-machine interactions. Prior works have shown the merits of video-based and augmented reality (AR) tutoring systems for local tasks. However, due to the...
GhostAR: A Time-space Editor for Embodied Authoring of Human-Robot Collaborative Task with Augmented Reality

GhostAR: A Time-space Editor for Embodied Authoring of Human-Robot Collaborative Task with Augmented Reality

We present GhostAR, a time-space editor for authoring and acting Human-Robot-Collaborative (HRC) tasks in-situ. Our system adopts an embodied authoring approach in Augmented Reality (AR), for spatially editing the actions and programming the robots through...
