Freiform: A SmartPen Based Approach for Creating Interactive Paper Prototypes for Collecting Data
The creation of multi-modal data collection is a complex task for all empirically working scientific disciplines. Currently the data is collected using complex audio-video technology and is then manually processed, quite often in a computer supported way. In this project we developed a system allowing to easily create interactive paper prototypes for collecting data. The systems is based on smart pen technology, which allows the user to simply sketch out the form on paper by defining the field type and the field size. Once the sketch is available on paper, data collection can start. The system runs directly on the smart pen. Collected data will be stored in an XML-based, which can be further processed by external programs.
