Article published in International Journal of Social Robotics


We just published the article “A Study on Different User Interfaces for Teaching Virtual Borders to Mobile Robots” in International Journal of Social Robotics. The article authored by Dennis Sprute, Klaus Tönnies and Matthias König deals with the evaluation and comparison of different user interfaces for teaching virtual borders. As the main result, user interfaces based on augmented reality (AR), in particular a RGB-D Google Tango tablet, yield the best results in terms of a low teaching effort and a high flexibility, accuracy and user experience. We comapred this user interface in extensive experiments with interfaces based on visual markers, a laser pointer and a common tablet solution.
