  • A Model that Predicts the Material Recognition Performance of Thermal Tactile Sensing 

    Bhattacharjee, Tapomayukh; Bai, Haoping; Chen, Haofeng; Kemp, Charles C. (2016)
    Tactile sensing can enable a robot to infer properties of its surroundings, such as the material of an object. Heat transfer based sensing can be used for material recognition due to differences in the thermal properties ...
  • Understanding older adults’ perceptions of and attitudes towards exergames 

    Barg-Walkow, Laura H.; Harrington, Christina N.; Mitzner, Tracy L.; Hartley, Jordan Q.; Rogers, Wendy A. (International Society for Gerontechnology, 2017)
    Purpose Maintaining physical activity is a key component of successful aging and has benefits for both physical and cognitive functioning in the older adult population. One promising method for engaging in physical activity ...
  • Utility of a Mobile Route Planning App for People Aging with Disability 

    Sanford, Jon A.; Melgen, Sarah; Guhathakurta, Subhrajit; Zhang, Ge (IARIA, 2018)
    Mobility is a key contributor to an individual’s community living and participation. As a result, outdoor environmental barriers, such as uneven sidewalks and no curb cuts, play a crucial role in the development of disability ...
  • A Qualitative Approach to Understanding User Needs for Aging with Disability 

    Remillard, Elena T.; Mitzner, Tracy L.; Singleton, Jenny L.; Rogers, Wendy A. (2018)
