Haptic and AR interface for paratrooper coordination Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • Applications that use geolocation data are becoming a common addition to GPS-enabled devices. In terms of mobile computing, there is extensive research in progress to create human-computer interfaces that integrate seamlessly with the user's tasks. When viewing location-based data in a real-world environment, a natural interaction would be to allow the user to see relevant information based on his or her location within an environment. In this paper, we discuss the use of a multi-modal interface that uses haptic feedback and augmented reality to deliver navigation information to paratroopers in the field. This interface was developed for GeoTrooper, a location-based tracking system that visualizes GPS data broadcast by mobile beacons. Copyright 2012 ACM.
