The Effect of Gesture-Command Pairing Condition on Learnability when Interacting with TV Jo, Chun-Ik; Lim, Ji-Hyoun; Park, Jun;
Objective: The aim of this study is to investigate learnability of gestures-commands pair when people use gestures to control a device. Background: In vision-based gesture recognition system, selecting gesture-command pairing is critical for its usability in learning. Subjective preference and its agreement score, used in previous study(Lim et al., 2012) was used to group four gesture-command pairings. To quantify the learnability, two learning models, average time model and marginal time model, were used. Method: Two sets of eight gestures, total sixteen gestures were listed by agreement score and preference data. Fourteen participants divided into two groups, memorized each set of gesture-command pair and performed gesture. For a given command, time to recall the paired gesture was collected. Results: The average recall time for initial trials were differed by preference and agreement score as well as the learning rate R driven by the two learning models. Conclusion: Preference rate agreement score showed influence on learning of gesture-command pairs. Application: This study could be applied to any device considered to adopt gesture interaction system for device control.
