1 Introduction

In this course we have divided the Human Computer Interface (HCI) into three parts: the input/data acquisition, the computer recognition and processing, and the output/display (see Figure 1). These set of notes describe in detail the first component, the input/data acquisition, i.e., the way in which information about the user is conveyed to the computer.
