Het project heeft zich gericht op de vraag hoe je goed onderbouwde user interfaces kunt ontwerpen (voor toegang tot AV-content) voor de VB-doelgroep, waarbij op een systematische manier gebruik gemaakt wordt van kennis van cognitieve functies (zoals geheugen, probleem-oplossen, aandacht, taalbegrip (lezen en luisteren), rekenen, visueel begrip),...

Bodily expression of affect is crucial to human robot interaction. Our work aims at designing bodily expression of mood that does not interrupt ongoing functional behaviors. We propose a behavior model containing specific (pose and motion) parameters that characterize the behavior. Parameter modulation provides behavior variations through which...

Large groups in society lack the necessary skills to be sufficiently self-reliant and are in need of personal assistance. These groups could be supported by information and information technology (ICT), but only if this technology is designed to fit their (cognitive) abilities. Inclusive design theory and methods have already been developed in...

An ePartner is a personal computer application that helps its user to achieve personal goals such as managing his or her health related behaviors concerning nutrition, exercise and medication. The aim of the first phase of the ‘ePartners that Care’ project is to achieve a general method and framework for the incremental development of such...

Keyboard shortcuts are generally accepted as the most efficient method for issuing commands, but previous research has suggested that many people do not use them. In this study we investigate the use of keyboard shortcuts further and explore reasons why they are underutilized by users. In Experiment 1, we establish two baseline findings: (1)...

Despite the availability of a broad range of newly developed multisensory displays and interaction techniques, multisensory interactive data representations are still not widely used. We argue that for complex information analysis multisensory data representations and multimodal interactivity are essential. By leveraging the benefits of the...

Contemporary and future technologies are getting more intelligent and connect easily to one another, potentially leading to conflicts with human ethical values. Value Sensitive Design (VSD) is promising for its focus on ethical values but lacks an explicit and systematical elicitation of requirements, which is targeted explicitly in the situated...

TNO conducted long-term video observations to collect data on the pre-crash phase of real accidents (what exactly happened just before the collision?). The video recordings of collisions were used to evaluate and validate the safety value of in-depth accident analyses, road scene analyses, and behavioural observations (including traffic...

Optimal support of professionals in complex ambient task environments requires a system that delivers the Right Message at the Right Moment in the Right Modality: (RM)3. This paper describes a content-based design methodology and an agent-based architecture to enable real time decisions of information presentation according to (RM)3. We will...

Learning and acting on social conventions is problematic for low-literates and non-natives, causing problems with societal participation and citizenship. Using the Situated Cognitive Engineering method, requirements for the design of social conventions learning software are derived from demographic information, adult learning frameworks and ICT...

Tactile and haptic interaction is becoming increasingly important; ergonomic standards can ensure that systems are designed with sufficient concern for ergonomics and interoperability. ISO (through working group TC159/SC4/WG9) is developing international standards in this subject area, dual-tracked as both ISO and CEN standards. A framework and...

People with social phobia have a severe fear of everyday social situations. In this paper we describe a virtual reality exposure therapy system specifically designed to expose patients with social phobia to various social situations. Patients can engage in a free speech dialogue with avatars while being monitored by a therapist. To control...

To provide personalized intelligent ambient support for persons performing demanding tasks, it is important to have insight in their state of attention. Existing models for attention have difficulties in distinguishing between stressed and relaxed states. To solve this problem, this paper proposes to extend an existing model for attention with a...

Early on in a disaster it is crucial for humans to make an assessment of the situation, to help determine further action. Robots can potentially assist humans here, particularly when the hotzone is too dangerous for humans. Crucial in this human-robot team effort is that the system of robot and means of interacting with it afford the human to...

A situation map that shows the overview of a disaster situation serves as a valuable tool for disaster response teams. It helps them to orientate their location and to make disaster response decisions. It is, however, a complicated task to rapidly generate a complete and comprehensive situation map of a disaster area, particularly due to the...

Shared Mental Models (SSM) are crucial for adequate coordination of activities and resource deployment in disaster responses. Both human and robot are actors in the construction of such models. Based on a situated Cognitive Engineering (sCE) methodology, we identified the needs, functions and evaluation paradigm for this model construction...

In this study we investigate miscommunications in interactions between human pilots and a virtual wingman, represented by our virtual agent Ashley. We made an inventory of the type of problems that occur in such interactions using recordings of Ashley in flight briefings with pilots and designed a perception experiment to find evidence of human...

Several methods have been proposed to treat combat veterans with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Still, a recent review reports on high drop-out and non response rates. This has motivated work in the design of a software application to support and increase the appeal of traditional face-to-face trauma-focused psychotherapy. The research...

In this chapter, we propose to outline the scientific area that addresses Ambient Intelligence applications in which not only sensor data, but also knowledge from the human-directed sciences such as biomedical science, neuroscience, and psychological and social sciences is incorporated. This knowledge enables the environment to perform more in...
