The increasing usage public displays led to the necessity of new forms of interaction with this type of systems. The solution that was considered in this dissertation involved gesture-based interfaces, since they do not require users to carry or use any input device other than their own body. This dissertation continues and extends previous work on DETI-Interact, an interactive public display system located at the lobby of Department of Electronics, Telecommunications and Informatics, to which several applications have been developed allowing interactions with 2D and 3D contents using a Kinect sensor. The main objective of this work was to improve those methods and develop new ones using the new gestures provided by the latest version of the Kinect SDK. Three user studies were conducted to evaluate the usability of our proposed navigation and manipulation methods, leading to this dissertation main contribution of a novel method for the 3D object manipulation.
