    Telepresent control of robots over the Internet or across large distances is in many applications either necessary or beneficial. However, exposing important control data to unreliable network conditions largely restricts the ability to carry out many long distance operations. This paper addresses a number of research questions regarding: (1) the impact of network delay on operator performance and... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1720 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper addresses the concept of immersive telemeasurement, where resources such as instruments and programmable devices are distributed in a network of different laboratories and could cooperate to set up augmented experiments. The immersivity for the user is given by a three-dimensional (3D) representation of the remote aggregated laboratory and is augmented by the possibility of interaction ... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1848 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The user reported interaction difficulties with information systems are because these systems are designed on the basis of developers' perceptions. It is more challenging to address this issue in the context of Web-based information systems where users come from varying backgrounds. Therefore, this paper aims to analyse the interaction of Web-based information systems on the basis of individual us... View full abstract»
