MINT Logo MINT Research Group

MINT is a research team of the LIFL / CNRS and of the INRIA Futurs, located in Lille, north of France.
Its activity is focused on "gestural interaction".

Research thematic areas
  • Gestures captured using held, worn or touched objects or contactless perceptual technologie
  • Computational representations of these gestures
  • Methods for characterizing and recognizing them
  • Transfer functions used for non-isometric object manipulations
  • Feedback mechanisms, and more particularly haptic ones
  • Engineering tools to facilitate the implementation of gestural interaction techniques
  • Evaluation methods to assess their usability
