Paper Abstract

In this paper, a novel system that operates home appliances at arbitrary positions in a room is proposed based on a “command space” associated with the operation of the home appliance. In the proposed system, a hand waving gesture is used to operate the home appliances. First, three-dimensional (3D) positions are extracted from the hand waving gestures at two different positions, and a command space is set up based on the extracted 3D positions. Thus, it is possible to operate the home appliances freely in an arbitrary place chosen by the user by installing the user-definable command space. Next, detailed operations are performed by hand waving in the command space. Experiments were conducted to confirm that detailed operations, such as TV channel switching, can be executed from different places using the proposed system.
