Recognition Technology to Transform Mobile Devices

View as: Print Mobile App Share:

MobileLab researchers at the University of Texas at Dallas (UTD), in collaboration with Texas Instruments (TI) and GetFugu, are developing next-generation human-device interaction (HDI) technologies that combine a physical, real-world environment with virtual, computer-generated imagery on mobile devices. The technology will enable users to gain quick access to information and connect to multimedia experiences.

For example, the researchers are developing an application that uses object-recognition technology to enable users to take a picture of an advertisement for a band and instantly get the band's tour dates and ticket information.

"Our researchers from MobileLab and the university's electrical engineering department are excited to collaborate with TI and GetFugu not only on the compelling technology of emerging HDI, but also on the new kinds user experiences it introduces," says MobileLab director Dean Terry.
