Fast and Memory-Efficient Voronoi Diagram Construction on Triangle Meshes

Geodesic based Voronoi diagrams play an important role in many applications of computer graphics. Constructing such Voronoi diagrams usually resorts to exact geodesics. However, exact geodesic computation always consumes lots of time and memory, which has become the bottleneck of constructing geodesic based Voronoi diagrams. In this paper, we propose […]

Supervised coordinate descent method with a 3D bilinear model for face alignment and tracking

Face alignment and tracking play important roles in facial performance capture. Existing data-driven methods for monocular videos suffer from large variations of pose and expression. In this paper, we propose an efficient and robust method for this task by introducing a novel supervised coordinate descent method with 3D bilinear representation. […]

Understanding the impact of multimodal interaction using gaze informed mid-air gesture control in 3D virtual objects manipulation

Multimodal interactions provide users with more natural ways to manipulate virtual 3D objects than using traditional input methods. An emerging approach is gaze modulated pointing, which enables users to perform object selection and manipulation in a virtual space conveniently through the use of a combination of gaze and other interaction […]

Hand gesture-based interactive puppetry system to assist storytelling for children

The Author(s)Digital techniques have been used to assist narrative and storytelling, especially in many pedagogical practices. With the rapid development of HCI techniques, saturated with digital media in their daily lives, young children, demands more interactive learning methods and meaningful immersive learning experiences. In this paper, we propose a novel […]
