A technology for gesture recognition AllSee, does not require energy




Modern technology for gesture recognition in mobile devices, in most cases work with the built in camera device. This method of interaction significantly consumes battery power, as well as similar technologies can not be used if your smartphone is in your pocket or purse. However, new technology AllSee, developed by researchers at the University of Washington, is designed to overcome both of these problems.

The new technology uses a receiver with ultra-low power, which is powered by electromagnetic waves around us, such as television waves and records the changes in the amplitude of these waves, caused by the movement of man. Different gestures person differently affect the amplitude, forming a unique “signature” that the system can detect and convert to a specific command, reports gizmag.com.

“This is the first recognition of gestures a dollar’s worth, does not require battery power. You can use the television signals as a power source and gesture recognition, “- says Professor Shyam Gollakota, working on the project AllSee.

Testing conducted by attaching a prototype device to the smartphone. According to the researchers, the accuracy of gesture recognition at a distance of 60 cm from the sensor reached 90%. As control gestures were used hand movements back and forth, and hand grip fist. Time response of the system was about 80 microseconds.

Such technology is designed to dramatically change the control devices with gestures, because AllSee its operation does not require the presence of any power supply, no direct visual contact. Perhaps in the future portable electronics manufacturers take into account the technology.
