Hyunwoo is a PhD student at the Empathic Computing Lab. He received his Master’s degree in computer science at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST). He’s worked at the Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI) as a permanent basis full-time researcher. Now, Hyunwoo is currently working on “Spatiotemporal Interaction in Mixed Reality Collaboration” under supervision of Prof. Mark Bullinghurst, Dr. Gun Lee and Dr. Thammathip Piumsomboon.
This research demo aims to address the problem of passive and dull museum exhibition experiences that many audiences still encounter. The current approaches to exhibitions are typically less interactive and mostly provide single sensory information (e.g., visual, auditory, or haptic) in a one-to-one experience.
The proposed study aims to assist in solving physical tasks such as mechanical assembly or collaborative design efficiently by using augmented reality-based space-time visualization techniques. In particular, when disassembling/reassembling is required, 3D recording of past actions and playback visualization are used to help memorize the exact assembly order and position of objects in the task. This study proposes a novel method that employs 3D-based spatial information recording and augmented reality-based playback to effectively support these types of physical tasks.
