In this paper we propose a novel algorithm for foot-gesture tracking method in mobile phones. To evaluate our proposed algorithm we develop two application scenarios for mobile immersive interaction experience based on audio, vibrotactile and foot interactions. For current studies we have located and tracked foot-gesture using template matching algorithm. The strength of proposed algorithm is demonstrated based on a successful completion of the given tasks. In the first application scenario the user is presented with an immersive fun dialing, i.e. dialing desired phone numbers using foot-gestures, while in the second application scenario, the user is provided with an immersive music game for unlocking keypad using foot-gesture on a smart phone. Our algorithm not only successfully locates and tracks foot-gesture but also can detect and track shoe of any size. These studies show the effectiveness of foot-gesture on mobile phones in real life situations.
