Multitouch and Gesture Recognition Technology Using Computer Interaction

Authors(2) :-Sheetal A.Paturde, Dr. Vijay.S.Gulhane

Touch screens are becoming more and more prevalent ,We are using them almost everywhere, including tablets, mobile phones, PC displays, ATM machines and so on. Although multi-touch technology is currently are search focus in the field of Human-Computer Interaction. Multi-touch system is based on touch technology that utilizes touch sensing as an input. It existed ubiquitously in our daily life such as on smart phones or different types of portable devices. In this paper , several foreign multi-touch technologies based on senor and computer vision are introduced and the advantages and disadvantages of these technologies are analyzed briefly. It is important for studying the technology of detection and tracking touch-point in multi-touch. Furthermore the FTIR (Frustrated Total Internal Reflection) and DI (Diffused Illumination) which are based on computer vision multi-touch technology are highlighted. Also, introduces early researches on this area and then focuses on current researches of multitouch and gesture recognition. It discussed about, types of touches, implementation &design, Gesture Sets and Recognition, multitouch gesture. Finally, several crucial techniques in the field of multi-touch technology are also discussed.
