INTUINFO TECHNOLOGY DEFINITION

IntuInfo makes use of the human intuition of 3D geometry and visual-auditory clues that everybody understands as a result of dealing with the real world. The technology maps data variables into the properties of 3D objects that are appropriately designed to map the decision making process. As data changes in time so do the objects. The audio-visualization permits its users to intuitively detect any change in the geometry, position, size, color, sounds, etc. of the object(s) and determine its implication. This enables significantly faster, more accurate and less cognitive demanding recognition of events than is possible using existing visualization technologies.

IntuInfo organizes measured or computed information into relevant data sets or critical functions. These data sets are then mapped as three-dimensional objects (e.g., cubes, spheres, pyramids, prisms) that work as metaphors of the critical functions of the system. The 3D objects' location and movement in space as well as their geometric and aesthetic attributes (e.g., shape, texture, opacity, color, etc) correspond to pertinent data variables. The addition of sound provides further perceptive acuity.

In addition, IntuInfo includes the following characteristics:

  • a reference framework of normative values for direct comparison;
  • simultaneous monitoring of present and historical data in real time;
  • visualization from different viewpoints to see both global and local contexts at once;
  • either a standard or a customized interface mode.
