Title: Active Interaction: Live Remote Interaction through Video Feeds
Author(s): Naisbitt, Jeffrey D.; Al-Muhtadi, Jalal F.; Campbell, Roy H.
Subject(s): Ubiquitous computing
Abstract: Ubiquitous computing environments and the plethora of mobile devices that populate them have led to a global trend for remote collaboration and interaction. This trend demands seamless in-terfaces for remote interaction with these ubiqui-tous environments and their inhabitants. Existing applications for remote interactions are limited and typically require the user to mentally translate vir-tual avatars, tags, or names into real objects. Loca-tion information from accurate location sensing technologies, such as Ubisense, and other location sensing devices, facilitate enhanced interactions. Fusing the location information with live video feeds from multiple standard pan-tilt cameras, we provide a seamless, easily reconfigurable, real-time interface for remote interactions within distributed ubiquitous environments. Users interact with ob-jects directly through the video feed itself. In ef-fect, our framework dynamically discovers all re-sources and programmable objects in the vicinity and allows remote users to interact with the envi-ronment and all of its resources and objects as if they were physically present in the environment.
