THE NEED FOR IMPULSIVITY & SMOOTHNESS - Improving HCI by Qualitatively Measuring New High-Level Human Motion Features

Barbara Mazzarino, Maurizio Mancini

Abstract

The aim of this paper is to develop algorithms to measure motion features by investigating concepts which are commonly used to describe movement characteristics in both research studies and everyday life: impulsivity and smoothness. We also aim to implement such definitions in our developing environment VisNet and finally test if they can effectively measure impulsivity and smoothness in the same way these characteristics are perceived by human users.
