Control and Manipulation


In this chapter, we will describe the processes of control and manipulation as performed by users of a computer system. Again, two components can be discerned (Figure 1.1 , left part). The first component we will approach consists of the ``human output channels'' (HOC). Theories on motor control will be reviewed briefly. The second component consists of the ``computer input modalities'' (CIM) that are suitable to be interfaced to the human output activity patterns. In addition, event handling architectures which are relevant for different computer input modalities will be investigated. Finally, our approaches towards bi- and multimodal control schemes will be introduced.
