WiSee: Whole-Home Gesture Recognition Using Wireless (not Kinect!)

Here’s a gesture recognition project from the Computer Science department at The University of Washington, Seattle. Unlike the Kinect, and similar devices, WiSee uses the WiFi signals already present throughout your home. Additionally, it requires no line-of-sight and can detect gestures through walls and other non-transparent obstacles. Results from the proof-of-concept project indicate that WiSee can identify and classify a set of nine gestures with an average accuracy of 94%.
