Contact-free Human-Computer Interaction

We believe that in the near future traditional computer input devices like keyboard and mouse are going to be supplemented or replaced by more natural interfaces. Applying usability engineering methods and the user centred design approach, we develop novel concepts for contact-free human-computer interaction that allow users to control any application or system by using free-form hand, finger or whole body movements and gestures. If suitable and beneficial, we include additional input technologies such as voice control to improve user experiences in specific scenarios. Applying our interaction modules various solutions in the field of medical, automotive, digital signage, cultural heritage or education have been developed that prove the capability of these interaction concepts.
