Multisensory Augmentation

May 15, 2015

In this project, we design multisensory cues or alternative interaction schemes that help to reduce end-users’ mental workload while engaged in physical and virtual information spaces.

Specifically, we employ theories related to executive control of our working memory (e.g., cognitive load theory) and differentiation of resource capacity according to stages in information processing, perceptual modality and processing codes (e.g., multiple resource theory). We mainly use Haptics and AR (Augmented Reality) technologies for this.
