    Immersive Analytics
    Immersive Analytics

    Immersive analytics is an emerging field of data exploration and analysis in immersive environments. The main idea is to use visual analytics in a fully immersive 3D space. The availability of immersive extended reality systems has increased tremendously recently, but it is still not as widely used as conventional 2D displays. We describe an immersive analysis system for spatio-temporal data and compare its performance in an immersive environment and on a conventional 2D display.

    In-vehicle intelligent voice agent: Speech style vs. embodiment, which matters more?

    In a fully autonomous vehicle setting, we found that both the conversational speech style and the embodiment (i.e., using a robot) of the agent promoted drivers’ likability and perceived warmth, whereas conversational voice agents received higher anthropomorphism and animacy scores, and the robot agents received higher competent scores.

We also developed two different hand-recognition systems: fixed and adaptive. We are conducting an experiment using a driving simulator where participants engage in menu navigation as a secondary task.
