Interactions des mondes physiques, de l'humain et du monde numérique (DS0707) 2014
Projet TurboTouch

High performance touch interactions

Touch-based interactions with computing systems are greatly affected by two interrelated factors: the transfer functions applied on finger movements, and latency. Little is actually known on these functions, and latency only recently received attention in this context. This project aims at transforming the design of touch transfer functions from black art to science to support high-performance interactions. We will precisely characterize the functions used and the latency observed in current touch systems. We will develop a testbed environment to support multidisciplinary research on touch transfer functions. We will use this testbed to design latency reduction and compensation techniques, and new transfer functions. Three partners with expertise in Human-Computer Interaction, Control Theory and Human Movement Science will collaborate on this project: the MINT and NON-A teams from Inria Lille, and the "Perceptual-motor behavior group" from the Institute of Movement Sciences.
