Wi-Fi Gesture Recognition on Existing Devices

1411.5394-1-1The Register reports on recent work by UW CSE’s Rajalakshmi Nandakumar, Bryce Kellogg, and Shyam Gollakota – the first wireless gesture recognition design that operates using ambient Wi-Fi signals and devices. Leveraging their design, the authors demonstrate the feasibility of non line-of-sight gesture interaction on commodity devices. Given the ubiquity of Wi-Fi on mobile devices, the work takes a significant step towards always-available interaction.
