Sujet de thèse

Mixed reality applications are providing more and more interaction for the users, creating complex systems of relations between real and virtual objects. However, in literature we currently observe a lack of abstraction techniques for the design of those interactions. The aim of this PhD work is to propose an abstract interaction model for mixed reality, which will be an extension of object-relation models proposed for VR purpose applications. The main contribution will be to introduce a model that can take into account the continuity of virtuality and reality in mixed reality as proposed by Milgram et al. in 1994. The new model will have to improve the connectivity between those two worlds.

Main steps:
• Bibliography on mixed reality (Augmented Reality, Augmented Virtuality, Virtual Reality)
• Bibliography on object-relation models dedicated to Virtual Reality
• Proposition of a general scheme linking real objects, virtual ones and their relationships
• Specification of some real use cases
• Implementation of the abstract model
• Validation of the abstract model on the use cases
