Abstract

In this paper, we describe a cultural training system based on an interactive storytelling approach and a culturally-adaptive agent architecture, for which a user-defined gesture set was created. 251 full body gestures by 22 users were analyzed to find intuitive gestures for the in-game actions in our system. After the analysis we integrated the gestures in our application using our framework for full body gesture recognition. We further integrated a second interaction type which applies a graphical interface controlled with freehand swiping gestures.
