Natural Interaction in Augmented Reality context
Visual Pattern Extraction and Recognition for Cultural Heritage Understanding Workshop (VIPERC2019)
ABSTRACT
In recent years, immersive technologies like Virtual and Augmented Reality have been accelerating at an incredible pace, building innovative experiences and developing new interaction paradigms. Current research has widely explored gesture interaction with Augmented Reality interfaces, but usually requires users to manipulate input devices that could be cumbersome and obtrusive, thus preventing them from interacting efficiently with the 3D environment. Therefore, Natural User Interfaces and freehand gesture interaction are becoming more and more popular, improving the userĘs engagement and sense of presence, providing more stimulating, user-friendly and non-obtrusive interaction methods. However, researchers argue about the impact of the interaction fidelity in usability and user satisfaction, questioning the level of naturalness that should characterize the interaction metaphors. Current paper proposes different gesture recognition techniques for three basic interaction categories (translation, rotation and scaling) in a Leap Motion Controller - Augmented Reality framework. A prototype is implemented in order to evaluate efficiency and usability of the proposed architecture. Finally, experimental results are discussed.
