Research Interests
BCMS Honours Topic: "Motion capture as input into Street View."

Street viewing projects like Google Street View, while useful, can often be quite awkward and disorienting to use. The goal of this project is to use motion capture devices like the Xbox Kinect to provide a more seamless and natural interface for navigating an area within a street viewing application.

The project involves determining which gestures are most effective and intuitive to use, and the effectiveness of the new input system will be tested with a combination of: placing the user in a pre-chosen location, and having them navigate to a nearby destination, or placing the user in a random location in the world (likely chosen from a pool of locations), and have them navigate their surroundings to determine where they have been placed.
