Evaluating HDR rendering algorithms
Jiangtao Kuang, Hiroshi Yamaguchi, Changmeng Liu, Garrett M. Johnson, Mark D. Fairchild
Article No.: 9
DOI: 10.1145/1265957.1265958

A series of three experiments has been performed to test both the preference and accuracy of high dynamic-range (HDR) rendering algorithms in digital photography application. The goal was to develop a methodology for testing a wide variety of...

Discrimination and identification of finger joint-angle position using active motion
Hong Z. Tan, Mandayam A. Srinivasan, Charlotte M. Reed, Nathaniel I. Durlach
Article No.: 10
DOI: 10.1145/1265957.1265959

The authors report six experiments on the human ability to discriminate and identify finger joint-angle positions using active motion. The PIP (proximal interphalangeal) joint of the index finger was examined in Exps. 1--3 and the MCP...

Modeling embodied visual behaviors
Nathan Sprague, Dana Ballard, Al Robinson
Article No.: 11
DOI: 10.1145/1265957.1265960

To make progess in understanding human visuomotor behavior, we will need to understand its basic components at an abstract level. One way to achieve such an understanding would be to create a model of a human that has a sufficient amount of...

Functional similarities in spatial representations between real and virtual environments
Betsy Williams, Gayathri Narasimham, Claire Westerman, John Rieser, Bobby Bodenheimer
Article No.: 12
DOI: 10.1145/1265957.1265961

This paper presents results that demonstrate functional similarities in subjects' access to spatial knowledge (or spatial representation) between real and virtual environments. Such representations are important components of the transfer...

Development and evaluation of a thermal display for material identification and discrimination
Hsin-Ni Ho, Lynette A. Jones
Article No.: 13
DOI: 10.1145/1265957.1265962

The objective of this study was to develop and evaluate a thermal display that assists in object identification in virtual environments by simulating the thermal cues associated with making contact with materials with different thermal properties....
