Resumen


Resumen
Una de las necesidades básicas para soportar aspectos de colaboración en una Aplicación Colaborativa (AC) es la identificación y seguimiento de los usuarios, ya que es necesario vincular todas las interacciones que ocurren durante la actividad a una identidad. Particularmente, para las AC que proveen una Interfaz de Usuario Tangible (TUI, por sus siglas en inglés), debe mantenerse en todo momento la interacción natural. Así pues, el objetivo de este trabajo es proponer una técnica para que las AC con TUI identifiquen a los usuarios que están colaborando y hagan un seguimiento de su actividad, a fin de obtener información sobre quiénes interactúan y cuánto tiempo, lo que podría apoyar en la evaluación de usabilidad. Para validar esta técnica, se desarrolló el prototipo CUI-Vision al que se le hicieron pruebas funcionales para verificar que la técnica funciona efectivamente.
Palabras Clave: Aplicaciones colaborativas, identificación de usuarios, interfaces de usuario tangibles, seguimiento.

Abstract
A basic need to support collaboration aspects in a Groupware is the users identification and tracking, because it is necessary to link all the interactions that occur in the activity to an identity. In particular, for Groupwares with Tangible User Interface (TUI), natural interaction must be maintained. So, the objective of this work is to propose a technique for Groupwares with TUI to identify users who are collaborating and to track their activity, in order to know who interacts and for how long, which could support in the usability evaluation. To validate this technique, the CUI-Vision prototype was developed, and functional tests were carried out to verify that the technique works effectively.
Keywords: Groupware, tangible user interfaces, tracking, user identification.
