Tour: Object Recognition

Easy to use object recognition for all touchscreens with eyefactive's advanced object recognition software technology and various special apps and widgets available through the AppStore.

Next to touch points and gestures by fingers, large-scale touchscreen systems offer the opportunity to recognize physical objects by means of so-called marker chips (also called as tags or fiducials). This way, real objects can easily be integrated into virtual applications, for example as products with multimedia information that get displayed when placed on the screen. The use of this innovative technology is fundamentally integrated in the eyefactive AppSuite and can be utilized in combination with various apps and widgets.

Object Recognition for all Touch Screen Systems

The recognition of objects on large-scale touch screens utilizes the well-known principle of the cashier barcode scanning system and takes it to a new level: objects which are equipped with a special marker chip or printed code can be detected and processed from Multitouch displays in real-time.

Marker Objects / Chips

Marker Objects / Chips

So-called marker chips (also called tags or fiducials) simulate a steady pattern consisting out of 3-4 touch points, which will be automatically learned and saved by our algorithm. Every fingerprint-like pattern is allocated an unique identification number, which can be used for different actions within the software.

There are many different designations of interactive objects for touch screens, e.g. markers, marker objects, fiducials or "tangible objects". They all denominate physical auxiliaries different in shape and size, we call them markers. They can be recognized by the touch screen. Various technologies exist on the market: Some markers use optical recognition and can simply be printed similar to QR codes. Others use an integrated specific technology or mechanism and are generally a bit bigger in size. The markers are mounted or glued for instance to the actual object as an auxiliary.

TUIO is an open-source framework and defines a data transfer protocol for interactive multitouch systems and applications.
