An Interactive Dynamic Tiled Display System

The present study has the development of a dynamic system build of several Tablet PCs as the main objective. This system has also the capability to be used by several people at the same time. Starting from the principle that there is spatial correspondence between the real and the virtual world, users are able to view and interact with objects in the virtual world by moving physically in the real world changing their posture or making gestures.

The visualization and interaction in the virtual world is done using the TabletPC that can be described as window frames to the virtual world. Therefore, the position and orientation of the Tablets are tracked in real time. The visualization is done in two different ways: assuming that each TabletPC is a window and also assuming that there are more TabletPCs active, when all of them are together they can be observed as only one window. In the last case the concept of multidisplays is used. Technology, comfort and effectiveness for the users were tested to validate the system.

The results achieved demonstrate that the project was successful. Beyond the technical report 9 scientific papers, reporting partial results of the project, were written and published. Apart from those, 2 other works were made and resulted in published articles, both focusing on the interaction with multidisplays systems, mentioned as outstanding challenges. In addition to the published work and to be published, verified by the publications in all articles and projects developed, there has always been theinvolvement of students. A Ph.D. student, 9 master’s degree and 6 undergraduate, directly or indirectly participated in the project.

A sequel of the project focused on a medical augmented reality application, the LivAR.
