Work in progress: remote experiment control through gesture recognition

Moore, Peter and Kist, Alexander A and Maiti, Ananda and Maxwell, Andrew D. (2016) Work in progress: remote experiment control through gesture recognition. In: 13th International Conference on Remote Engineering and Virtual Instrumentation (REV 2016), 24-26 Feb 2016, Madrid, Spain.


Abstract

Remote access laboratories (RAL) allow users to control an experiment or rig remotely via the Internet. This usually involves a client application in a web browser and a server that controls hardware. Control is usually implemented through a graphical user interface and mouse/keyboard interaction. This project investigates gesture recognition as an alternative control paradigm for remotely accessible experiments. This paper introduces a prototype implementation of gestures in remote experiment control through for remote access laboratory environments. The new contribution of this work is the creation of a prototype for gesture controlled equipment on the internet using a common webcam.
