🌿 SUGILITE is a new programming-by-demonstration (PBD) system that enables users to create automation on smartphones. SUGILITE uses Android’s accessibility API to support automating arbitrary tasks in any Android app (or even across multiple apps). When the user gives verbal commands that SUGILITE does not know how to execute, the user can demonstrate by directly manipulating the regular apps’ user interface. By leveraging the verbal instructions, the demonstrated procedures, and the apps’ UI hierarchy structures, SUGILITE can automatically generalize the script from the recorded actions, so SUGILITE learns how to perform tasks with different variations and parameters from a single demonstration. Extensive error handling and context checking support forking the script when new situations are encountered, and provide robustness if the apps change their user interface. Our lab study suggests that users with little or no programming knowledge can successfully automate smartphone tasks using SUGILITE.
🥀 AARemu is a software tool enabling simulation of Augmented Reality by allowing an AR developer to record either an interactive 360 degree or a non-interactive free-form view of a location using the devices camera and orientation sensors (this functionality is provided by the ARemRecorder app). The ARCamera/ARCameraDevice classes which provides a mock implementation of the Android Camera API classes can then be used to preview the recorded scene instead of the live camera preview provided by the Android Camera class. The preview callback is analogous to the standard Camera preview callback except that the preview bytes provided in the callback are extracted from a file created by the recorder application. These preview bytes are passed to the development code via the same preview callback as provided by the standard Camera classes and can thus be processed by Computer Vision algorithms before being displayed by the client application. The frames are stored as individual video frames in RGBA format and not as video so the preview can be accessed in any direction. The tool is aimed at developers of mobile AR applications as it allows the developer to record view(s) of a given location and then debug and test the AR application in the comfort of a office or home without having to make extensive changes to the programming code.
