Abstract

This paper presents a system for another input modality in a multimodal human-machine interaction scenario. In addition to other common input modalities, e.g. speech, we extract head gestures by image interpretation techniques based on machine learning algorithms to have a nonverbal and familiar way of interacting with the system. Our experimental evaluation proofs the capability of the presented approach to work in real-time and reliable.
