Abstract

According to the spread of smart devices such as smartphones and smart tablets, opportunities to communicate between them will be more increased. Though we usually use WiFi and Bluetooth, it is still burden task for end-users. Many previous techniques to collaborate devices easily has been also proposed, they are not always best solution in some situations. This paper proposes a new interaction method called Vinteracion, which leverages combination of vibrator and accelerometer to send information from smart device to the other smart device. Vinteraction enables users to use touch interaction like Near Field Communication, which provides easy and intuitive way. We present an algorithm and implementation of vibration-based communication that can be adapted to any combination of smart devices. We also present several applications which leverages Vinteraction effectively. Through an evaluation by using popular six products, we confirmed that Vinteraction is easy to use transfer method with current products with reasonable performance.
