Hinweis der Redaktion
Good morning everybody we are BananaByte and our team is comprised of Alex McNeill and myself Daniel Mazur. Our client is Dr. David Rozado who is a new lecturer here at Otago Polytechnic
Currently nearly every way to interface with a computer is physical, we tend to use keyboards, mice, and touch screens to do so. This poses a giant problem for people in situations where they are unable to use their hands. This leaves people with certain disabilities unable to use computers at all, and people in professions that require the full attention their hands unable to easily access computers that could aid them with their jobs.
The three main tools that are becoming viable hands free interfaces options for a computer are eye tracking, voice recognition, and facial recognition.
In the past years Dr. Rozado has been researching eye tracking and trying to find ways to make it a viable interface for a computer. He has researched controlling a computer by using eye gestures, and using eye tracking in conjunction with hand tracking to control a computer. As part of Davids on going research into this he has tasked us with integrating eye tracking with voice recognition to create a system greater than the sum of its parts, that allows a user to look items on their computer screen and give commands verbally to allow hands free control of their computer.
The project aims to fix some of the imperfections of each of these systems on their own. For example eye tracking not being easy to give commands with, and voice commands being difficult to give context to the action you are trying to make. This system will be used by Dr. Rozado to create research material that will add to the Scientific literature on these technologies.
There are existing tools that we can use to develop this system
There are already many speech recognition tools that can be used to develop this project we are looking at Google Speech, Microsoft Speech Recognition and Dragon Naturally Speaking. At the moment we are leaning towards Google’s Speech API due to it being free and reliable.
There are also a few different tools that we can use to get the eye tracking data. A few of the main ones being Tobii EyeX, Pupil and GazePoint. We chose to use Tobii EyeX for this project due to it being affordable, non invasive to users, and having a lot of documentation on it.
This project presents a few risks that will need to be managed in order for a to successfully complete the project. These are:
Distance communication with the client:
Due to our client currently being in Australia until April, we need to ensure that we keep up a constant communication line with him, especially in these early phases of the project. This will ensure that there are no miscommunications on defining elements of the project.
Lack of knowledge in human interface design
Due to Daniel and I having very little knowledge in designing good interfaces we will need to ensure that we consult with people that can advise us in this area.
As you can imagine the system we are developing can be used in many situations and help many different people. To help explore some of these situations we plan to bring some other clients into the project to explore there specific problems so we can develop a system that can be easily modified to provide the solutions they need.
The two main groups of people we would like to bring on as consultants are:
People with experience with dealing with a disability that inhibits the use of arms/hands:
To ensure that this system is usable for people with disabilities we need to bring on a person with either personal experience with disability or expertise in a disability.
Workers in positions that they want but are unable to use a computer
Examples of positions are surgeons and pilots. Both positions keep their hands busy but would benefit from being able to easily access a computer
When working with these two different groups we need to be careful not getting stuck in one point of view and make sure we continue to aim for this system to be a general solution to a problem.
Complex ethical considerations
Due to us needing to test this system on human subjects there are some complex ethical considerations to be made. When we get closer to the point in to project where we need to run these tests we will be seeking help in running these tests and creating the correct documentation needed to run the tests.
Are their any questions?
Questions they might ask:
Are there other solutions that are already in place for this problem?
This is St. Clair. A great place. All of you may know what I want to talk. Before that I want to show you some facts.
This is all documents they have, PDF, Excel (even two formats, .xls, .xlsx), a variety of data sources, and distributed everywhere.
All images, data and chart come from the two documents and the website.
We have been privileged to have had an initial meeting with Ian Griffin (Director of the Otago Museum), whose own enthusiasm for astronomy and the development of a planetarium at the Museum will provide the people of Dunedin the chance to meaningfully connect with the world around them. Our project aims to be a part of this.
People want to know - Anyone who frequents twitter will know that Dunedin people are constantly asking where, when, how they can see an aurora.
Economic value - The council is going to replace the street lighting in the next few years anyway, and they have recognised the opportunity for astro-tourism.
Now is the time - The convergence of technology, sustainable thinking, and economic need means the time is right for these things to happen.
Using equipment such as magnetometer and all-sky camera to feed data and meaningful predictions into social media making this easily accessible
Citizen science (Crowdsourcing scientific participation) eg Your Weather by Metservice or Wunderground.
Client Deadlines - Ian has indicated a deadline of ‘sooner rather than later’ - specifically for the magnetometer initiative.
SCOPE!!! - We all know about scope creep. Enough said.
Early Stage - We’ve only had one initial meeting with Ian, so we are still defining our relationship with the Museum and our project.
This is a new idea and isn’t currently being used. The only current process that is happening is Dave hands out paper based booklets when someone hirers a boke from him.
The measurement of success will be the amount of downloads, the amount of people that update and the amount of business that pay to advertise on the system
Remote client, Dave is located in middle march and is only in town on a real bases. He is best contacted via phone.
Mobile, Dave and Pip are IOS users, we learn android, android phones are cheaper If tourists are buying disposable phone, android holds the market share.
No/very limited mobile service along the trail. So all the information needs to be on the phone, no network connectivity.
Uptake. Ensure that we have the right mix of useful information to adds, gps searching will drain battery .
GPS. Ensure that we are triggering the gps often enough that if the user was to be in a tunnel or dense bush the application will still work.
Say who client is and business
Business problem - The Southern District Health Board has a problem with communication with its 4.5k staff in case of emergencies(Snow Days, Virus outbreaks…) Our client Paul McNamara wants a system that easily notifies staff during emergencies to prevent confusion and panic. At the moment the SDHB uses emails to communicate during emergencies but finds this unreliable as a lot of staff don’t check their emails and certain email accounts are unable to be accessed off of hospital grounds due to security and risk of release of confidential information.
Two options: Option 1 - Stand alone smartphone application that pulls information from the SDHB and displays to screen. Would solve issue but wouldn’t set foundations for sending emergency information to different channels in the future. Option 2 - Engine that can be used to send emergency information to multiple channels(i.e. smartphone, email, text, pager). This idea is good because it means many devices will be able to receive notifications not just smartphone.
-We have limited knowledge of android platform as only taking paper this semester
-Scope creep extra features such as meeting modes and notepad style feature may detract from the main concept which is emergency
-Private numbers that should not be released to the public will be included
