Sensors are imperatively important materials for designing interactive systems. As other traditional materials, the knowledge of sensing characteristics allows the designers to make the best selection as a function of its application in a given product; nonetheless, the primitive constraints of the chosen sensors also limit the user experiences and the design path. In this talk, Rong-Hao will introduce Sensor Transformation, an approach that enables the raw materials --- the sensors --- new functions, and capabilities for overcoming the limitations of traditional sensing systems through physical form giving. Examples of the Sensor Transformation include 1) GaussSense, the occlusion-free magnetic-field camera for near-surface 3D tangible interactions; 2) FlexiBend, the shape-sensing strip that enables interactivity of a deformable fabrication; 3) RFIBricks, the interactive building block system based on modified UHF RFID tags; and 4) BioFidget, the augmented fidget spinner for biosensing and respiration training. In this second part, Yaliang will present a study that investigated the fundamental communicative behaviors of the intelligent products and systems. They selected and analyzed nine concept videos, systematically analyzed the interactions and communications of the users with the machines or systems that were demonstrated in the films. As a result, they extracted 38 design vocabulary items and clustered them into 11 groups: Active, Request, Trigger functions, Approve, Reject, Notify, Recommend, Show problems, Express emotions, Exchange info, and Socialize. This framework not only could inspire designers to create self-explanative intelligence, but support develops to provide a language structure at different levels of the periphery of human attention. Through the enhancement of situated awareness, human-IoT system interaction could become more seamless and graceful.



Dr. Rong-Hao Liang is assistant professor ‘sensor technology’ in the Department of Industrial Design, Eindhoven University of Technology, the Netherlands. Rong-Hao received his Ph.D. in Computer Science (2014) from National Taiwan University, an M.S. in Electrical Engineering (2010) from National Taiwan University. He also found a company, GaussToys Inc., in Taiwan (2015). From Dec. 2014 until Sep. 2016 he was an assistant research fellow in Intel-NTU Research Center of Connected Context Computing, National Taiwan University. He has co-chaired the paper track of the 10th international Design and Semantics of Form and Movement (DeSForM '17) conference and served as a member of ACM UIST and ACM TEI conference program committee. Rong-Hao has an interest in technical Human-Computer Interaction research, with a specific focus on innovative tangible and wearable sensors, ubiquitous displays, and rapid prototyping tools. His research received ACM CHI 2013 Best Paper Award, ACM CHI 2014 Best Paper Honorable Mention Award and Best Talk Award, and ACM UIST 2016 Best Talk Award. Until 2017 he has published more than 30 papers on Technical HCI Research and held several user interface hardware patents.

Dr. Yaliang Chuang is assistant professor in the Future Everyday group of the Department of Industrial Design, Eindhoven University of Technology, the Netherlands. Yaliang received his Ph.D. in the Design School from National Taiwan University of Science and Technology in 2008. He studied Industrial Design in NCTU (Master) and NCKU (Bachelor). He is interested in designing interactive products and worked as an interaction designer in Philips Research, III, and ITRI in Taiwan. Before moving to the Netherlands, he conducted postdoctoral researches in the Intel-NTU center. Currently, his research focuses on the human-things interactions with connected technologies, such as Smart Home and Smart Manufacturing. He is the CO-PI of the Natural and Seamless Interaction project of the NTU IoX center Taipei. He collaborates with the researchers in understanding human-system communications and designing intuitive interfaces to enhance situation awareness of the smart products and environment. In 2006, Yaliang co-founded the International Journal of Design (SCI-E, SSCI). Since then, he continues to serve as the Managing Editor to assist the community to publish high-quality design research papers and promote them through global research databases, e.g., Web of Science and EBSCO Host.
