  • Investigation of suitable body parts for wearable vibration feedback in walking navigation 

    Nem Khan Dim; Ren, Xiangshi (International Journal of Human-Computer Studies, 2017)
    Many studies have demonstrated the benefits of wearable vibration devices for walking navigation (TsukadaandYasumura,2004). Despite the potential benefits, suitable body parts for wearable vibration devices have not been ...
  • Designing Mid-Air TV Gestures for Blind People Using User and Choice-Based Elicitation Approaches 

    Nem Khan Dim; Silpasuwanchai, Chaklam; Sarcar, Sayan; Ren, Xiangshi (Proceedings of the 2016 ACM Conference on Designing Interactive Systems, 2016)
    Mid-air gestures enable intuitive and natural interactions. However, few studies have investigated the use of mid-air gestures for blind people. TV interactions are one promising use of mid-air gestures for blind people, ...
  • An Exploratory Study of Marking Menu Selection by Visually Impaired Participants 

    Nem Khan Dim; Kim, Kibum; Ren, Xiangshi (School of Information, Kochi University of Technology, Kochi, Japan, 2017)
    Although there have been recent advances in smartphone accessibility for blind people, they rely on screen readers and voice commands which are not ideal for users with visual impairment in mobile situations. By contrast, ...
  • Designing motion marking menus for people with visual impairments 

    Nem Khan Dim; Kim, Kibum; Ren, Xiangshi (International Journal of Human-Computer Studies, 2017)
    Current smartphone accessibility for people with visual impairments relies largely on screen readers and voice commands. However, voice commands and screen readers are often not ideal because users with visual impairments ...
  • Designing Motion Gesture Interfaces in Mobile Phones for Blind People 

    Nem Khan Dim; Ren, Xiangshi (Journal of Computer Science And Technology, 2014)
    Despite the existence of advanced functions in smartphones, most blind people are still using old-fashioned phones with familiar layouts and dependence on tactile buttons. Smartphones support accessibility features including ...
  • Suitable Body Parts for Vibration Feedback in Walking Navigation Systems 

    Machida, Taiga; Nem Khan Dim; Ren, Xiangshi (CHI '15 Proceedings of the Third International Symposium of Chinese CHI, 2015)
    Walking navigation systems are improving in accuracy, and user reliance on such systems is increasing. However, most of these systems rely on visual and audio information which may not always be convenient and sufficient ...
  • Mission Control over Multi UAVs in the Real-time Distributed Hardware-In-the-Loop Environment 

    Soe Linn Htet; Tin Naing Lat; Ye Chan; Soe Mya Mya Aye; Pho Kaung (Transactions on GIGAKU, 2014-04-19)
    Mission control has been designed for Multiple Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (Multi-UAVs) and the overall control performance verified by a real-time distributed Hardware-In-the-Loop (HIL) environment. Four modules-onboard ...
