Attentive Deskwork Support System


We propose an attentive deskwork support system that quickly delivers required objects to people who work at desks. To meet this goal, we propose methods to understand a user’s request for support. To know the existence of the user request, the system uses the characteristics of the user’s hand and eye movements and detects hand-reaching movements. The system understands the content of the user’s request by integrating sensory and contextual information using a probabilistic model. Finally, the system determines a point of delivery by predicting a user’s hand movement and delivers required objects by using self-moving trays. The experiments are conducted to evaluate the usefulness of the system proposed here.
