Acoustic Gesture Recognition

This project aims to build the connection between humans and digital content through an easy to set up and natural interaction method that turns everyday objects into intuitive and creative interfaces. This could be achieved by acoustic gesture recognition which adds interactivity on the object surfaces by detecting the sound produced when performing a gesture. This technique will be used to enable interaction on physical objects for manipulation in the Internet of Things (IoT) , peripheral smart devices, Augmented Reality (AR), and Virtual Reality (VR) environments. It is also possible to customize tangible interfaces for specific applications and people with special needs.
