Controlling of technical Systems by using the bodylanguage
In daily life, technical systems are playing an increasingly important role. Human-communicate with machines using a mouse and keyboard, and sometimes natural language. So far, an important communication channel is neglected: body language. Technical devices could support humans better if they could understand the current emotional state of individuals.

In SIPBILD1, demonstration programs that interpret conscious control gestures and facial expressions were developed. These will be augmented in the second project phase.
  Higher robustness in different environments
  For the application in arbitrary and uncontrollable environments, the system must be robust against changing lighting conditions, as well as inhomogeneous and changing backgrounds. Also, differences between individuals, such as height, skin colour and clothes, must be taken into account.

There are often a couple of people in front of the camera, instead of just one person. This poses a new problem: Which person wants to interact with the system? And when does he want to start or end the interaction? It is important that the system recognizes the begin and end of interaction.
 
  More facial expressions and gestures
New application domains by recognizing a broad spectrum of facial expressions and gestures. Being able to recognize a broader range of gestures and postures, allows the system to adapt to a user. This will make interaction with the system easier and more intuitive.

To make a qualified estimation about the emotional disposition of a person, it is not enough to only recognize the facial expression; the magnitude of the facial expression must also be taken into account.
For applications such as sales agents or knowledge management and counselling systems, it is also important to detect the change in emotions by registering the progression of gestures over time.
