As a new way of human-computer interaction, inertial sensor based in-air handwriting can provide a natural and unconstrained interaction to express more complex and richer information in 3D space. However, most of the existing in-air handwriting work is mainly focused on handwritten character recognition, which makes these work suffer from poor readability of inertial signal and lack of labeled samples. To address these two problems, we use unsupervised domain adaptation method to reconstruct the trajectory of inertial signal and generate inertial samples using online handwritten trajectories. In this paper, we propose an AirWriting Translater model to learn the bi-directional translation between trajectory domain and inertial domain in the absence of paired inertial and trajectory samples. Through semantic-level adversarial training and latent classification loss, the proposed model learns to extract domain-invariant content between inertial signal and trajectory, while preserving semantic consistency during the translation across the two domains. We carefully design the architecture, so that the proposed framework can accept inputs of arbitrary length and translate between different sampling rates. We also conduct experiments on two public datasets: 6DMG (in-air handwriting dataset) and CT (handwritten trajectory dataset), the results on the two datasets demonstrate that the proposed network successes in both Inertia-to Trajectory and Trajectory-to-Inertia translation tasks.
