We present a one-handed approach for augmented reality and interaction on mobile devices. The proposed application considers common situations with mobile devices such as when a user's hand holds a mobile device while the other hand is free. It also supports natural augmented reality environment such as when a user interacts with augmented reality contents(More)
For interactive augmented reality, vision-based and hand-gesture-based interface are most desirable due to being natural and human-friendly. However, detecting hands and recognizing hand gestures in cluttered background are still challenging. Especially, if the background includes a large skin-colored region, the problem becomes more difficult. In this(More)
Edge-based tracking is a fast and plausible approach for textureless 3D object tracking, but its robustness is still very challenging in highly cluttered backgrounds due to numerous local minima. To overcome this problem, we propose a novel method for fast and robust textureless 3D object tracking in highly cluttered backgrounds. The proposed method is(More)
In projection-based augmented reality (AR) alleviating visual distraction of patterns has been a great challenge. As a representative one, a method of embedding patterns and their complements (hereafter, we call the pairs complementary patterns) into AR images alternately has been proposed recently. This paper presents subjective evaluation results and(More)
For projector-based augmented reality systems, geometric correction is a crucial function. There have been many researches on the geometric correction in the literature. However, most of them focused only on static projection surfaces and could not give us a solution for dynamic surfaces (with varying geometry in time). In this paper, we aim at providing a(More)
In direct-projected augmented reality, the visual patterns for compensation may distract users despite users would not be interested in the compensation process. The distraction becomes more serious for dynamic projection surface in which compensation and display should be done simultaneously. Recently, a complementary pattern-based method of efficiently(More)
Existing geometric and radiometric compensation methods for direct-projected augmented reality focus on static projection surfaces rather than dynamic surfaces (with varying geometry in time). We aim at providing an effective framework for projecting a sequence of augmented reality images onto dynamic surfaces without geometric and radiometric distortion.(More)
Model-based camera tracking is a technology that estimates a precise camera pose based on visual cues (e.g., feature points, edges) extracted from camera images given a 3D scene model and a rough camera pose. This paper proposes an automatic method for flexibly adjusting the confidence of visual cues in model-based camera tracking. The adjustment is based(More)
Color differences are determined by illumination, the spectral reflectance of objects, and the spectral sensitivity of the imaging sensor. We explore the optimal illumination conditions that best separate one object from another. Given two objects with distinct spectra, we derive the optimal illumination spectrum to maximize their color distance with a(More)
