The paper presents a novel approach to real-time temporal alignment of motion sequences, called On-line Predictive Warping (OPW) and considers potential uses in interactive applications. The approach develops on the methods of aligning motions based on least cost, used in dynamic time warping (DTW), with the short term predictions of smoothing algorithms, in an iterative step through approach. The approach allows a recorded motion sequence to be warped to align it with a users motion as it is being captured. The paper demonstrates the potential feasibility of the approach to support applications in MR and VR, allowing virtual characters to perform and interact with users and live actors in a variety of rehearsal, training, visualisation and performance scenarios.
