Interactions in a Human-Scale Immersive Environment: the CRAIVE-Lab

  title={Interactions in a Human-Scale Immersive Environment: the CRAIVE-Lab},
  author={Gyanendra Sharma and Jonas Braasch and Richard J. Radke},
We describe interfaces and visualizations in the CRAIVE (Colaborative Research Augmented Immersive Virtual Environment) Lab, an interactive human scale immersive environment at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. We describe the physical infrastructure and software architecture of the CRAIVE-Lab, and present two immersive scenarios within it. The first is “person folowing”, which alows a person walking inside the immersive space to be tracked by simple objects on the screen. This was implemented…

Multi-person Spatial Interaction in a Large Immersive Display Using Smartphones as Touchpads
In this paper, we present a multi-user interaction interface for a large immersive space that supports simultaneous screen interactions by combining (1) user input via personal smartphones and
Manipulating Screen Elements in an Immersive Environment with a Wrist-Mounted Device and Free Body Movement
A novel technique for manipulating screen elements in large display environments supporting fluid user interactions is proposed, which combines a wrist-mounted Leap Motion controller with user tracking from an array of ceiling-mounted Kinects, creating a dynamic and directed interaction screen space.
Language Learning in a Cognitive and Immersive Environment Using Contextualized Panoramic Imagery
Street View technology has the potential to further enhance foreign language learning and cultural knowledge acquisition in the Mandarin Project and real-world panoramic scenes immerse learners in new locations and can provide richer context for more meaningful language learning.
Composing Spatial Music with Web Audio and WebVR
Composers have been exploring complex spatialization techniques within multi-channel sound fields since the earliest days of electroacoustic and electronic music. However the reproduction of such
The cognitive and immersive situations room
Cognitive environments with "eyes," "ears," "mind," "mouth," and "hands" will converse with people, understand group dynamics, present stories, and augment group intelligence, enabling humans and


A Comparative Study of Sense of Presence of Traditional Virtual Reality and Immersive Environments
The primary conclusion is that participants experienced a higher sense of presence in the IVE experiment when compared with the TVRE experiment, indicating significantly more natural and richer user experience through the Ive system’s interface.
Multicamera human detection and tracking supporting natural interaction with large-scale displays
The proposed computer vision system, based on a camera network that observes multiple humans in front of a very large display, has been successfully deployed in an archaeological museum, offering its visitors the capability to interact with and explore a digital representation of an ancient wall painting.
Interaction techniques in large display environments using hand-held devices
This paper introduces user interaction techniques using a camera-equipped hand-held device such as a mobile phone or a PDA for large shared environments and proposes three intuitive interaction techniques for 2D and 3D objects in such an environment.
High-precision pointing on large wall displays using small handheld devices
This work investigates high-precision pointing techniques capable of acquiring targets as small as 4 millimeters on a 5.5 meters wide display while leaving up to 93 % of a typical tablet device's screen space available for task-specific widgets.
Interacting with large displays from a distance with vision-tracked multi-finger gestural input
Bimanual techniques are developed to support a variety of asymmetric and symmetric interactions, including fast targeting and navigation to all parts of a large display from the comfort of a desk and chair, as well as techniques that exploit the ability of the vision-based hand tracking system to provide multi-finger identification and full 2D hand segmentation.
Interaction with Large Displays
The evolution of large interactive displays is discussed by looking at their use and analyzing how they are changing the concept of human-computer interaction through new modalities, by surveying the literature on systems using these displays.
A Survey of Large High-Resolution Display Technologies, Techniques, and Applications
The effects of large high-resolution displays on human performance and other aspects is important as the authors look toward future advances in display technology and how it is applied in different situations.
Distant freehand pointing and clicking on very large, high resolution displays
Three techniques for gestural pointing and two for clicking are developed and evaluated and subtle auditory and visual feedback techniques are presented to compensate for the lack of kinesthetic feedback in freehand interaction.
