In this paper, we develop an unaffected interface for CAVE using the motion templates method. We develop background model for CAVE with real photos. The panoramic images are constructed using these photos from real environment and texture-mapped to virtual sphere surround CAVE. As a user interface for this background model, the motion templates method of computer vision technologies is used. The computer vision module recognizes predefined user’s gestures and sends commands to render module of CAVE system via internet using UDP protocols. Using this method, the users can manipulate the background model unaffectedly.
