ARAMIS: Augmented Reality Avatar as Model for Interaction Science
ARAMIS is focused on context aware interaction of human with a smart
environment. Research axes are related to interaction and to context
awareness. In particular, ARAMIS takes in account gesture and
human-machine interactions with an egocentric perspective. This
perspective is based on a situative model of what a human being can see
or not and reach or not at any given moment. The particularity of this
model is that physical and virtual objects are treated as being located
in the same space.
Human-computer interaction, human-environment interaction, human
centered-computing, multimodal interaction, egocentric interaction,
gesture recognition, hybrid approach, Augmented/virtual/mixed realities,
This research work should analyze and exploit the fusion between real
and virtual world, in order to propose an innovative interaction
paradigm (model). The proposed model will be validated through the
design of an integrated framework to bridge the gap between physical and
virtual world and to exploit mixed environments in order to facilitate
and enhance human capabilities. The first approach used to face this
problem is a hybrid system for the gesture recognition.
