Tele-embodied agent (TEA) for video teleconferencing
2013 (English)In: Proceedings of the 12th International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Multimedia 2013, Luleå, Sweden, New York, 2013Conference paper, Poster (Refereed)
We propose a design of teleconference system which expressnonverbal behavior (in our case head gesture) along withaudio-video communication. Previous audio-video confer-encing systems are abortive in presenting nonverbal behav-iors which we, as human, usually use in face to face in-teraction. Recently, research in teleconferencing systemshas expanded to include nonverbal cues of remote person intheir distance communication. The accurate representationof non-verbal gestures for such systems is still challengingbecause they are dependent on hand-operated devices (likemouse or keyboard). Furthermore, they still lack in present-ing accurate human gestures. We believe that incorporatingembodied interaction in video teleconferencing, (i.e., usingthe physical world as a medium for interacting with digi-tal technology) can result in nonverbal behavior represen-tation. The experimental platform named Tele-EmbodiedAgent (TEA) is introduced which incorperates remote per-son’s head gestures to study new paradigm of embodied in-teraction in video teleconferencing. Our preliminary testshows accuracy (with respect to pose angles) and efficiency(with respect to time) of our proposed design. TEA canbe used in medical field, factories, offices, gaming industry,music industry and for training.
