I’ve recently taken the time to get a paper published on a technique I started development on as part of my final year undergraduate studies several years ago. The technique uses a small number of user inputs on a touch-screen which relate to the known position of landmarks in an environment to determine the position of an interface. The publication details a study investigating how big of an impact user’s accuracy has on the technique.
Earlier this year I was involved in supporting a study which investigated how technology could support collaboration between primary-school aged students in separate classrooms. As part of this study the SynergyNet software framework was used. This is the first time SynergyNet had been used in a study spanning multiple sites and required a few tweaks to get working.
