Abstract

In this paper we evaluated the possible application of a passive, optical sensor as an interface for human-smart glasses interactions. The designed proximity sensor is composed of set of photodiodes and the appropriate hardware and software components. First, experiments were performed for the estimations of such parameters as distance to an object, its width and velocity. Achieved results were satisfactory. Therefore, next, a set of static and dynamic hand gestures was proposed together with the related recognition method. The method was verified during experiments with volunteers. Experiments have shown that in appropriate lighting conditions it is possible to detect static and dynamic simple hand gestures using inexpensive and computationally efficient sensor. These features enable the use of such a sensor as one of the smart glasses interfaces.
