Alignment in Augmented Reality based Cooperation

The project C5 investigates interactional coordination and alignment with regard to the practices participants use in order to establish and sustain mutual orientation to an object or referent. By using an Augmented Reality-based Interception and Manipulation System (ARbInI) for co-presently interacting participants we are able to remove, manipulate or add communicatively relevant multimodal information in real-time. This methodological tool for linguistic research allows to modify specific factors, usually known as crucial interactional resources (e.g. timing, mutual monitoring), in order to investigate their impact in the establishment and maintenance of co-orientation/joint attention. Thereby, the system encompasses novel facilities for recording sensor-rich data sets which can be accessed in parallel with qualitative/manual and quantitative/computational methods.
