Take part in a survey on how augmented reality visual cues could help people at home

Augmented reality visual cue

EngD research student, Thomas Williams, is looking for participants to take part in an online survey as part of his research project.

Exploring how augmented reality could help people living with dementia at home

This survey forms part of  a research project which looks at how augmented reality might be able to help someone to complete a task by showing them a visual cue of how the objects need to be moved in order to achieve that task, like moving something from one area to another.

Your participation in this study will help Thomas gather user perceptions of the augmented reality visual cues he has been working on.

What does the survey involve?

You will be asked to watch a number of videos and answer open-ended questions about what you see by typing your answers.

After watching all of the videos, there will be a final set of questions. The videos will contain content such as what you can see in the picture above.

Who can take part?

You can take part if you are 18 years old or older and do not have a diagnosis of dementia.

You cannot take part if:

  • You have a visual impairment that means you are unable to easily watch videos online, because the interview involves commenting on the visual aspects of multiple videos.
  • You have a diagnosis of dementia. If you have a diagnosis of dementia and wish to take part, there may be other opportunities to participate in this research project. Contact Thomas for more information >

Where and when will the study take place?

This is an online survey which you can complete using the link below.

The survey will take between 20 and 40 minutes to complete.

The survey will be open from the 3 – 24 August.

Benefits of being involved

  • Exciting and interesting opportunity to be involved with research using an up-and-coming technology
  • You will have the option of entering a prize draw to win one of two £25 cash prizes
