Relevant information as a formalised approach to evaluate game mechanics
We present a new approach to use adaptive AI in the game design process to aid evaluating of game mechanics. During production, this is a crucial task to improve the player satisfaction with a game title. The problem with ...
Developing play scenarios for tactile interaction with a humanoid robot : A case study exploration with children with autism
The work presented in this paper is part of our investigation in the ROBOSKIN project. The paper presents the completion of the first phase towards skin-based robot assisted play that included a literature review, exploratory ...
Probing evolutionary mechanisms in galaxy clusters: neutral atomic hydrogen in Abell 1367
We present Very Large Array H i imaging data for a field in the NW of the galaxy cluster Abell 1367 (z= 0.02) in an attempt to probe the effect environment has on the interstellar medium of late-type spiral galaxies. Several ...
Activity pattern and personal exposure to nitrogen dioxide in indoor and outdoor microenvironments
People are exposed to air pollution from a range of indoor and outdoor sources. Concentrations of nitrogen dioxide (NO2), which is hazardous to health, can be significant in both types of environments. This paper reports ...
Evaluation of a CMAQ simulation at high resolution over the UK for the calendar year 2003
A comprehensive ‘operational’ evaluation of the performance of the Community Multiscale Air Quality (CMAQ) modelling system version 4.6 was conducted in support of pollution assessment in the UK for the calendar year 2003. ...
Human-centred design methods : developing scenarios for robot assisted play informed by user panels and field trials
This article describes the user-centred development of play scenarios for robot assisted play, as part of the multidisciplinary IROMEC1 project that develops a novel robotic toy for children with special needs. The project ...
Road traffic impact on urban atmospheric aerosol loading at Oporto, Portugal
At urban areas in south Europe atmospheric aerosol levels are frequently above legislation limits as a result of road traffic and favourable climatic conditions for photochemical formation and dust suspension. Strategies ...
