Brian D. Mayton, Nan Zhao, Matt Aldrich, Nicholas Gillian, Joseph A. Paradiso


WristQue combines environmental and inertial sensing with precise indoor localization into a wristband wearable device that serves as the user’s personal control interface to networked infrastructure. WristQue enables users to take control of devices around them by pointing to select and gesturing to control. At the same time, it uniquely identifies and locates users to deliver personalized automatic control of the user’s environment. In this paper, the hardware and software components of the WristQue system are introduced, and a number of applications for lighting and HVAC control are presented, using pointing and gesturing as a new human interface to these networked systems.
