Intuito: Opportunistic tangible programming by demonstration for physical components

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

As computer programming becomes more important to various fields and disciplines and as it is more commonly taught in education settings, the number of end-users with basic programming experience is increasing. The importance of being able to easily and quickly develop programs has prompted research in "opportunistic" programming methods. This research contributes to this domain by introducing a platform called Intuito, designed for programming physical components (sensors and actuators) through direct "programming by demonstration" techniques. Our approach is to offer users a tangible system that maps the user's actions with sensors and actuators into editable text-based code by inferring the user's intentions. We present our initial hardware and software prototype with an in-lab preliminary evaluation of this system.
