1. Vriens, K.C.H.J. Finger-tracking based interactions in Augmented Reality: Exploring the usability of finger-tracking-based interactions and the effects of multimodal feedback in mobile augmented reality applications.

Degree: 2013, Universiteit Utrecht

Recent years have seen a rise of mobile Augmented Reality applications. The increasingly powerful mobile phones have not only brought us practical applications, such as direction overlays on a map, but also made way for mobile AR gaming. However, many of the current applications still make use of touchscreen gestures for interaction. In this thesis we delve into finger-tracking-based gestures with the purpose of delivering a more pleasurable and immersive experience to mobile phone users. In our first experiment we compare a finger-tracking based implementation to a touchscreen-based implementation in a mobile AR board-game, featuring both physical and virtual objects, to test both performance and enjoyability. Based on the ?findings and issues that emerged from this experiment we decided to take a closer look at the intricacies of fi?nger-tracking and touchscreen interactions in an attempt to enhance the performance of our fi?nger-tracking based system. The outcome of this second experiment suggested that our ?finger-tracking based system, and others, could be further improved by adding additional feedback. A third experiment was therefor designed to study the effects of multimodal feedback on performance and user perception. With the phone as our only source of feedback, we tested the the combinations of visual, audible and remote haptic feedback, with constant and temporary intervals. The results showed that multimodal feedback in general, and constant visual cues combined with temporary haptic cues especially, can increase user responsiveness when transitioning between interactions. Finally we show remote haptic feedback to be a preferable method of feedback both in terms of usage, performance and preference. Advisors/Committee Members: Hürst, W..

2. Cao, Huiyuan. Design of a turn-taking control system based on tactile in multi-user, synchronous remote communication : La conception d'un système pour distribuer tactilement le tour de parole dans les situations de télécommunication.

Degree: Docteur es, Technologie des sciences humaines, 2013, Compiègne

L'objectif principal de cette thèse est de concevoir un système impliquant un feedback tactile facilitant l’organisation du tour de parole dans le contexte de la communication verbale à distance et à plusieurs. Ces situations impliquant des technologies numériques sont actuellement décrites comme étant des "conferences call". Elles relèvent également du Computer Supported Collaborative Work (CSCW) lorsqu'elles impliquent une tâche collaborative. Curieusement, ces situations n'ont été l'objet que de très peu d'études en dépit des problèmes qu'elles suscitent et l'évolution de ces technologies s'est faite au profit d'un enrichissement par la vidéo. Cette thèse propose une autre forme d'enrichissement par un retour tactile permettant de dépasser l'une des principales difficultés de la communication verbale à distance à savoir le contrôle du tour de parole. Deux modalités de cet enrichissement ont été étudiés : la redondance et la substitution. Comme redondance avec le feedback visuel, nous avons fait l'hypothèse que la modalité tactile favorise l'alternance du tour de parole et augmente l'expression d'intentions non verbales à l'image des situations de face à face. Comme substitution au visuel, l'hypothèse a été de poser que le tactile produit un avantage en cela qu'il fluidifie le tour de parole. Le système conçu dans cette recherche montre, au moyen de trois expériences, que l'échange verbal à distance et sa distribution dans le cadre d'une tâche de prise de décision collective peut être efficient avec un enrichissement tactile et donner lieu à une auto-régulation du tour de parole.

Our thesis aim was to design a system based on tactile modality to organize a synchronous, multi-user remote verbal communication to facilitate better turn-taking. The remote communication we studied is actually called the ‘conference call’, and relies on computer technology. A conference call is a form of CSCW, and it is thus a collaborative task. As conference calls have rarely been studied in previous research, a system designed to optimize this kind of work is of great value. Tactile modality is the basic element of the design and its impact is also studied in our thesis. As a modality of redundancy, tactile feedback accelerates the alternation of turn-taking. Moreover, it augments the intention of non-verbal exchanges, which accounts for most of the communication in face-to-face situations. As a modality of substitution, tactile modality shows a distinct advantage in making the turn-taking transfer smoother compared to visual modality. Finally, a conference call for a decision-making task under a simple turn-taking allocation system based on tactile modality provides evidence that this designed system’s controlled conference call has good efficiency and good distribution of the talking length of turn-taking.

3. Wottawa, Christopher Robert. An Investigation into the Benefits of Tactile Feedback for Laparoscopic, Robotic, and Remote Surgery.

Degree: Biomedical Engineering, 2013, UCLA

Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) provides profound and well-known benefits to patients at the cost of increased technical difficulty for surgeons. In all types of minimally invasive surgery, including robotic, laparoscopic, and remote surgery, tactile information is altered, or in the case of robotic procedures, completely absent.The first version of a tactile feedback system for robotic surgery was completed in 2008. During the course of this research, the feedback system was iteratively redesigned in order to address some of its shortcomings, improve its performance, and to allow the necessary expansion to other applications and in-vivo use.When the improved tactile feedback system was integrated with a non-robotic laparoscopic grasper, it was found that tactile feedback significantly decreased the grip force of novice subjects during laparoscopic training, but had little impact on experts.After designing a new water insulation methodology, the system was integrated with the da Vinci surgical robot and used for the first time in a live tissue experiment. This experiment showed that there was a high variability between subjects, and that there was a correlation between the amount of force used and amount of damage observed. Most expert and novice subjects used significantly decreased grasping forces, and had significantly fewer sites of damage when evaluated by a blinded pathologist, but some of this may have been caused by familiarization with the task.The first prototype remote surgery system with tactile feedback was developed by combining three existing systems: The University of Washington RAVEN-II, the UCLA LapaRobot, and the improved tactile feedback system. In a preliminary investigation of remote surgery over a simulated network with delays of 100 ms and then 1 ms, there were decreases in grasping force for most subjects, and more significant retention when the time delay was minimized.Together these findings suggest that tactile may be a beneficial addition to minimally invasive surgical systems - especially for cases with heavy cognitive demand, such as training of novice users, challenging control schemes, and when handling delicate tissue - and that efforts should continue to advance the feedback system towards clinical viability.
