Abstract(s) :

(Anglais) Integrating new input devices and their associated interaction tech- niques into interactive applications has always been challenging and time- consuming, due to the learning curve and technical complexity involved. Mod- eling devices, interactions and applications helps reducing the accidental com- plexity. Visual modeling languages can hide an important part of the technical aspects involved in the development process, thus allowing a faster and less er- ror-prone development process. Even with the help of modeling, a gap remains to be bridged in order to go from models to the actual implementation of the in- teractive application. In this paper we use ICO, a visual formalism based on high-level Petri nets, to develop a generic layered framework for specifying ex- ecutable models of interaction using gestural input devices. By way of the CASE tool PETSHOP we demonstrate the framework’s feasibility to handle the Kinect and gesture-based interaction techniques. We validate the approach through two case studies that illustrate how to use executable, reusable and ex- tensible ICO models to develop gesture-based gaming applications.
