Characterisation of gestural units in light of human-avatar interaction

Journal Title: EAI Endorsed Transactions on Creative Technologies - Year 2015, Vol 2, Issue 3

Abstract

We present a method for characterizing coverbal gestural units intended for human-avatar interaction. We recorded 12 gesture types, using a motion-capture system. We used the markers positions thus obtained to determine the gestural units after stroke segmentation. We complement our linguistic analysis of gestures with an elaboration of our biomechanical hypotheses, our method of segmentation, our characterization hypotheses and the results obtained.
