Paper Abstract

It is now possible to design real-time, low-cost computer vision systems even in personal computers due to the recent advances in electronics and the computer industry. Due to this reason, it is feasible to develop computer-vision-based human-computer interaction systems. A vision-based continuous GraffitiTM-like text entry system is presented. The user sketches characters in a GraffitiTM-like alphabet in a continuous manner on a flat surface using a laser pointer. The beam of the laser pointer is tracked on the image sequences captured by a camera, and the corresponding written word is recognized from the extracted trace of the laser beam.
