Semi-automatic Generation of Interaction Mappings for EMG Devices
Our approach uses UCD (User-Centered Design) and computational approaches for the semi-automatic generation of gesture mappings for devices with low gestural resolution, such as the Myo Armband, an off-the-shelf EMG capture device. As an exemplar interactive task, we use text-entry: a pervasive and highly complex interaction. The goal of this approach is to merge both computational resources (e.g. mathematical modelling, optimization algorithms) and designers knowledge (in high-level factors as comfort and learnability) to find an optimum gesture mapping.
