- ItemOpen AccessSeamless Mixed Reality Tracking in Tabletop Reservoir Engineering Interaction(2012-04-20T17:00:10Z) Lapides, Paul; Sultanum, Nicole; Sharlin, Ehud; Costa Sousa, MarioIn this paper we present a novel mixed reality tracking system for collaborative tabletop applications that uses decorative markers and embedded application markers to create a continuous and seamless tracking space for mobile devices. Users can view and interact with mixed reality datasets on their mobile device, such as a tablet or smartphone, from distances both far and very near to the tabletop. We implement the tracking system in the context of a collaborative reservoir engineering tool that brings together many experts who need a private workspace to interact with unique datasets, which is supported by our system.
- ItemOpen AccessSnakey: A Tangible User Interface for Well Path Planning in the Context of Reservoir Engineering(2011-05-26T21:35:45Z) Harris, John; Young, James; Sultanum, Nicole; Lapides, Paul; Sharlin, Ehud; Costa Sousa, MarioWe present Snakey, a tangible user interface (TUI) designed for the field of reservoir engineering. The Snakey interface focuses on intuitive manipulation and interaction with 3D curves common to underground well path planning. Our paper discusses design goals and prototyping solutions relating to the physical materials, sensing technology, input/output mapping, and multi-modal information feedback of the Snakey TUI. The paper also discusses a design critique of the latest prototype interface performed by domain experts (experienced reservoir engineers) and concludes by outlining our findings regarding the next steps required to improve the current Snakey interface prototype.
