Real-time Latency Measure and Compensation in Interactive Systems :
"End-to-end latency in interactive systems is detrimental to performance and usability, and comes from a combination of hardware and software delays. These delays are steadily addressed by hardware and software improvements, but at a decelerating pace. In parallel, short-term input prediction has shown promising results in recent years, in both research and industry, as an addition to these efforts.
However current prediction techniques assume a constant end-to-end latency and can only compensate small amounts of latency before starting to introduce negative side-effects. In addition, measuring end-to-end latency in real time without using hardware probes remains an open question. This project addresses these questions to contribute theoretical and empirical results together with practical tools."
