Windows 7: Innovative Microsoft Surface NUI Robot Command and Control Center

24 Aug 2010   #1

Innovative Microsoft Surface NUI Robot Command and Control Center


Microsoft Surface can be transformed into a fully-fledged robot command and control center delivering a unique NUI (natural user interface) experience, illustrative of the innovations made possible through the combination of the company’s technologies.

University of Massachusetts Lowell Robotics Lab member Mark Micire defended his doctoral thesis, titled "Multi-Touch Interaction for Robot Command and Control" at the start of this week.

As the label implies, Micire explored a scenario in which Microsoft Surface and the Microsoft Robotics Developer Studio have been used in tandem in order to help Microsoft’s tabletop computer evolve into a robot command and control center.

“To boil it down, his work has been to use the technology in Microsoft Surface and Microsoft Robotics Developer Studio to aid in controlling individual and groups of robots working on emergency response in the field,” Microsoft’s Eric Havir stated.

“This allows not only direct control of the robots through the natural user interface, but also uses the display to provide feedback to the command staff about the environment and performance of the tasks.”

Just watch the video embedded at the bottom of this article in order to get an idea of what a Multi-Touch Interaction for Robot Command and Control implies.
