Abstract
To address the Navy need for multitouch pressure-sensitive hand movement operations to manipulate 3D objects in motions with up to six degrees of freedom, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Advanced Multitouch Gesture Operations (AMTGO) system for 3D modeling and simulation environments, integrating a support vector machine (SVM) classifier, 3D physics engine, touch pressure measurement capabilities, and multithreaded parallel processing algorithms. The innovation in physics-based multitouch software design and support vector machine (SVM)-based gesture classification enables intuitive gesture operation and parallel processing for 3D manipulations. The integration of AMTGO and the Depth-Separated Screen Space (DS3) technique allows touch input from multiple users to manipulate complex 3D objects with up to six degrees of freedom. In Phase I, a proof-of-concept software prototype will be developed to demonstrate the feasibility of the AMTGO technology in performing advanced multitouch pressure-sensitive hand movement operations. In Phase II, the AMTGO prototype will be optimized to demonstrate a fully functioning multitouch system, with a complete library of multitouch hand movements provided by the Navy. In Phase III we will transition the technology to commercial developers and government research and development facilities.
