    Mobile input technologies can be bulky, obtrusive, or difficult to use while performing other tasks. In this paper, we present Hambone, a lightweight, unobtrusive system that affords quick access, subtlety, and multitasking capabilities for gesture-based mobile device interaction. Hambone uses two small piezoelectric sensors placed on either the wrist or ankle. When a user moves his hands or feet,... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (809 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    For realizing multi-DOF interfaces in wearable computer system, accelerometers and surface EMG sensors are used synchronously to detect hand movement information for multiple hand gesture recognition. Experiments were designed to collect gesture data with both sensing techniques to compare their performance in the recognition of various wrist and finger gestures. Recognition tests were run using d... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (838 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    We introduce the Gesture Watch, a mobile wireless device worn on a user's wrist that allows hand gesture control of other devices. The Gesture Watch utilizes an array of infrared proximity sensors to sense hand gestures made over the device and interprets the gestures using hidden Markov models. The Gesture Watch maps intuitive gross hand gestures to control signals such as the play and pause comm... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (786 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    We present a framework for 3D spatial gesture design and modeling. A wearable input device that facilitates the use of visual sensors and body sensors is proposed for gesture acquisition. We adapted two different pattern matching techniques, Dynamic Time Warping (DTW) and Hidden Markov Models (HMMs), to support the registration and evaluation of 3D spatial gestures as well as their recognition. On... View full abstract»

    In this paper we present a garment prototype using strain sensors to recognize upper body postures. A novel thermoplastic elastomer strain sensor was used for measuring strain in the clothing. This sensor has a linear resistance response to strain, a small hysteresis and can be fully integrated into textile. A study was conducted with eight participants wearing the garment and performing a total o... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we present a real-time algorithm for automatic recognition of not only physical activities, but also, in some cases, their intensities, using five triaxial wireless accelerometers and a wireless heart rate monitor. The algorithm has been evaluated using datasets consisting of 30 physical gymnasium activities collected from a total of 21 people at two different labs. On these activit... View full abstract»

  • Fusion of String-Matched Templates for Continuous Activity Recognition

    Cited by:  Papers (4)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (343 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper describes a new method for continuous activity recognition based on fusion of string-matched activity templates. The underlying segmentation and spotting approach is carried out on several symbol streams in parallel. These streams represent motion trajectories of body limbs in Cartesian space, acquired from body-worn inertial sensors. First results of our method in a highly complex real... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (7)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (435 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    We present an experiment that investigates the usefulness of muscle monitoring information from arm mounted force sensitive resistors (FSR) for activity recognition. The paper is motivated by previous work that has demonstrated the feasibility of using FSRs for muscle activity monitoring (on leg muscles) and presented some initial signals related to distinct arm activities. We systematically inves... View full abstract»

    MobZombies is a combination wearable sensor device and mobile game with a unique user interface. The game control requires physical, embodied movement that couples the wearable sensor to the game play. By walking or running and turning the wearable sensor controls the action within the game. We use a small sensor platform custom designed for MobZombies, together with software written for a hand-he... View full abstract»

    In previous work on the MsSAM (Methods to Support Shared Analysis for Mobile Investigators) project, we presented an initial prototype device to be used to support evidence recovery on a crime scene. Using some of the findings from this and combining it with other work for minimal interaction, and shared awareness for strategic field operations, we proposed a system that would support efficient re...
