COMP PhD Candidate received the Best Paper Award at MoMM2022

11 Jan 2023

We are proud to announce that the paper entitled “Curvable Image Markers: Towards a Trackable Marker for Every Surface” won the Best Paper Award at the 20th International Conference on Advances in Mobile Computing & Multimedia Intelligence (MoMM2022). The first author of the paper is our PhD Candidate, Mr Zackary Ping Tat SIN, and his supervisors are Dr Hong Va LEONG (Associate Professor) and Dr Peter NG (Assistant Professor). This paper proposed adapting fiducial markers for curved surfaces, which aims at enhancing the interaction in Augmented reality (AR).

AR possesses great potential for productivity, entertainment and communication, inclusive of the mobile context. Although the strength of AR is the blending of physical and virtual environments, current mobile applications seem to focus only on overlaying the virtual part upon the physical one. It is argued that an important direction to explore is how to enhance the interaction in AR such that physical elements can act upon the virtual ones.

ArUco is a popular choice in academia for tracking due to its relatively cheap processing cost and requiring only RGB input, making it also suitable for mobile devices. A fiducial marker like ArUco, however, is flat. To move towards enabling it for uneven surfaces, this paper proposed adapting the markers for curved surfaces to be suitable on bandages for warping around objects for tracking. The process involves curve modeling and content extraction. It also presents an image marker making use of neighborhood features to improve its appeal for AR purposes.

MoMM is a leading international conference for researchers and industry practitioners to share their new ideas, original research results and practical development experiences from all mobile computing and multimedia related areas.
