Title:

    Inside-out Tracking Controller for VR/AR HMD using Image Recognition with Smartphones

Presenter(s):



Abstract:


    To smoothly operate an HMD controller in the 3D space, a variety of operation methods that are linked to the real hand movements have been proposed. Many controller recognition methods are based on outside-in tracking. Therefore, those controllers have the disadvantage that it cannot be operated if it moves into the occluded area from the sensor. In this paper, we propose an inside-out controller for HMD using a smartphone that can estimate its own position and the angle via image recognition. This is a system that transmits the controller’s 6DoF(six degrees of freedom) information to the HMD and performs raycasting based on the 6DoF information. Wherever the controller is located, the user can operate it. This method covers the disadvantages of existing HMD controllers.
