Aim of the project is the development of a man-machine-interface which interprets various kinds of input, e. g. speech, gestures or facial expression of the user. Our institute is responsible for the recording and annotation of the data, as well as for the ergonomic evaluation of the prototype.
This prototype is tested at our lab. Using this type of simulation we can test planned functions of the system with regard to ergonomy on the one hand, while on the other we can perform empirical research to obtain a basis for the development of e.g. gesture-recognizer or the user model of the system.
SmartKom is being developed for three sapplication scenarios, each with different requirements:
1) SmartKom Home/Office to operate machines at home (e.g. TV, workstation, radio),
2) SmartKom Public to have a public access to the internet or other services, and
3) as a mobile assistant.
Duration: 01.09.99 - 31.08.2003 (planned)
