Abstract


  • Almost all consumer electronic equipment today uses remote controls for user

    interfaces. However, the variety of physical shapes and functional commands that each remote

    control features also raises numerous problems: the difficulties in locating the required remote

    control, the confusion with the button layout, the replacement issue and so on. The consumer electronics

    control system using hand gestures is a new innovative user interface that resolves the complications

    of using numerous remote controls for domestic appliances. Based on one unified set of

    hand gestures, this system interprets the user hand gestures into pre-defined commands to control

    one or many devices simultaneously. The system has been tested and verified under both incandescent

    and fluorescent lighting conditions. The experimental results are very encouraging as the

    system produces real-time responses and highly accurate recognition towards various gestures.
