Paper Abstract

This paper proposes an integrated virtual space control system for intelligent house room which consists of many kinds of appliances and information systems to enrich human life. The main features of the system are 1) the user controls the system via a large size display which represents system state linked to real appliances, 2) the system utilizes hand gesture to realize intuitive interaction, 3) the virtual space of the display utilizes 3D drag-and-drop metaphor. As for the core component of the proposed system, the paper reports implementation of a hand motion tracking system with multiple views and a controllable camera. Experimental results show that the tracking system solves a problem of the system scale explosion to achieve the accuracy and stability in real-time tracking.
