We present a hand-and-foot-based multimodal interaction approach for handheld devices. Our method combines input modalities (i.e., hand and foot) and provides a coordinated output to both modalities along with audio and video. Human foot gesture is detected and tracked using contour-based template detection (CTD) and Tracking-Learning-Detection (TLD)(More)
There is an increasing interest in creating pervasive games based on emerging interaction technologies. In order to develop touch-less, interactive and augmented reality games on vision-based wearable device, a touch-less motion interaction technology is designed and evaluated in this work. Users interact with the augmented reality games with dynamic(More)
Aging is a major factor involved in neurological impairments, decreased anti-oxidant activities, and enhanced neuroinflammation. D-galactose (D-gal) has been considered an artificial aging model which induces oxidative stress and inflammatory response resulting in memory and synaptic dysfunction. Dietary supplementation exerts valuable effects against(More)
In this paper we present a vision based intuitive interaction method for smart mobile devices. It is based on markerless finger gesture detection which attempts to provide a 'natural user interface'. There is no additional hardware necessary for real-time finger gesture estimation. To evaluate the strengths and effectiveness of proposed method, we design(More)
— Facial expressions play an important role in every day social interaction. To enhance the daily life experience for the visually impaired, we present the Facial Expression Appearance vibroTactile System (FEATS), which uses a vibrotactile chair as the social interface for the visually impaired. An array of vibrating motors are mounted spatially on the back(More)
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a devastating and progressive neurodegenerative disease and is characterized pathologically by the accumulation of amyloid beta (Aβ) and the hyperphosphorylation of tau proteins in the brain. The deposition of Aβ aggregates triggers synaptic dysfunction, hyperphosphorylation of tau, and neurodegeneration, which lead to cognitive(More)
In this paper we present hand and foot based immersive multimodal interaction approach for handheld devices. A smart phone based immersive football game is designed as a proof of concept. Our proposed method combines input modalities (i.e. hand & foot) and provides a coordinated output to both modalities along with audio and video. In this work, human(More)
In this paper we propose three tire based protocol for augmented reality application on mobile phones for animal situation awareness and tracking system in a wireless sensor network. We have developed and deployed an animal tracking system in a local zoo that can provide visitors information about individual animals. Here we present our ongoing work on an(More)
