Mi, Haipeng, Ishii, Kentaro, Ma, Lei, Laokulrat, Natsuda, Inami, Masahiko and Igarashi, Takeo (2012): Pebbles: an interactive configuration tool for indoor robot navigation. In: Adjunct Proceedings of the 2012 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2012. pp. 11-12. http://dx.doi.org/10.1145/2380296.2380303

This study presents an interactive configuration tool that assists non-expert users to design specific navigation route for mobile robot in an indoor environment. The user places small active markers, called pebbles, on the floor along the desired route in order to guide the robot to the destination. The active markers establish a navigation network by communicating each other with IR beacon and the robot follows the markers to reach the designated goal. During the installation, a user can get effective feedback from LED indicators and voice prompts, so that the user can immediately understand if the navigation route is appropriately configured as expected. With this tool a novice user may easily customize a mobile robot for various indoor tasks.

Mi, Haipeng and Sugimoto, Masanori (2011): HATs: interact using height-adjustable tangibles in tabletop interfaces. In: Proceedings of the 2011 ACM International Conference on Interactive Tabletops and Surfaces 2011. pp. 71-74. http://dx.doi.org/10.1145/2076354.2076368

We present Height-Adjustable Tangibles (HATs) for table-top interaction. HATs are active tangibles with 4 degrees of freedom that are capable of moving, rotating, and changing height. By adding height as an additional dimension for manipulation and representation, HATs offer more freedom to users than ordinary tangibles. HATs support bidirectional interaction, enabling them to reflect changes in the digital model via active visual feedback and to assist users via haptic feedback. A number of scenarios for using HATs are proposed, including interaction with complex and dependent models and applying HATs as tangible indicator widgets. We then introduce the implementation of HAT prototypes, for which we utilize motor-driven potentiometers to realize bidirectional interaction via the height dimension.

Sangsuriyachot, Nuttapol, Mi, Haipeng and Sugimoto, Masanori (2011): Novel interaction techniques by combining hand and foot gestures on tabletop environments. In: Proceedings of the 2011 ACM International Conference on Interactive Tabletops and Surfaces 2011. pp. 268-269. http://dx.doi.org/10.1145/2076354.2076409

Despite the convenience and intuitiveness of multi-touch gestures, there are some tasks that do not allow users to effectively conduct even using two-handed gestures. We propose novel input techniques of combining hand and foot gestures to enhance user interactions on tabletop environments. We have developed an early prototype of a sensor-based foot platform which recognizes subtle foot gestures, designed foot gestures and interactions which support simultaneous users' tasks and obtained their informal feedback.
