3D-gestures can be a more natural interface of smartphones and watches

The possibility of interaction with smartphones and other mobile devices by means of three-dimensional gestures with his hands and fingers much closer to the reality of the digital world of sensations. And the new Linnaeus University project will help in the development of next-generation interface that allows you to use to control the device in the usual reality of movement.

3D-gestures can be a more natural interface of smartphones and watches

The real world is three-dimensional and has a width, length and depth (height). Why do users have to settle for two-dimensional gestures in interaction with their mobile devices?

Of course, touch screens much easier to work with the device. Then came a new category of devices - smart clock and head-mounted display to interact with which is clearly not enough current two-dimensional interface for users to interact with familiar touchscreen their digital assistants.

Members would like to see the action could execute and hand movement over the handheld device, and around it. This is what scientists want to realize a new project Real-Time 3D Gesture Analysis for Natural Interaction with Smart Devices, whose task, as its name implies, is to provide a natural interaction with the smart device in real-time through the three-dimensional gesture mode. This project is another significant step towards the development of interface technology. The aim of this project is that the user experience when interacting with digital devices become more natural, and the object of the virtual world could be, for example, take and turn, explains the project manager at the University of Linneaus Shahrouz Yousefi (Shahrouz Yousefi).

Applications developed technology are many and varied - Virtual (VR) and augmented (AR) reality, medicine, robotics, e-learning technology, 3D-games and much more.

In order to have an opportunity analysis of movements of hands and fingers in real time, of course, required, and high power, and high intelligence system that is designed for this purpose. It includes a large amount of data and advanced analysis methods, especially when the system needs to keep track of simultaneous movement of several arms.

The main difficulty of the task is the development and implementation of new approaches to the analysis of large amounts of data (Big Data), gestures and movements. The second and no less difficult task is to integrate these new solutions with existing computer "vision" and recognition technologies.

Is it convenient to manage smartphone 3D-gesture?
