It is has long been understood that automated systems aiming to assist or interact with human activity need to have a degree of understanding of human behaviour in order to be effective. Actions and responses need to align with our expectations and information needs to be presented in a manner which reflects our own perceptions. What is less well understood is how that understanding of behaviour is to be obtained. In this talk we will present the very first work of the department "augmented vision" of DFKI. The focus lies on capturing technologies and includes head-, hand-, arm- tracking, object identification and scene reconstruction. The goal is to build a precise digital representation of a real and dynamic scene, including humans executing given tasks and interacting with the surrounding. The technologies involve visual-inertial sensor units, inertial on-body sensors, fisheye as well as high-resolution spherical HDR-images. Current results will be presented and discussed in relations with achieved quality and required computing resources.
