Abstract

The recent increase in number of household appliances has resulted in an increase in the number of required remote controls. Multifunctional learning remote controls attempt to reduce the number of controls, but their complexity may confuse users. Recently, an alternative gesture-based control system has also been proposed, but it requires users to perform complicated gestures for turning on or selecting appliances. In this paper, we propose an appliance control system, which leverages the advantages of remote controls and gesture recognition. In our system, a user can select the target device just by pointing to the appliance using a remote control. After selecting the device, the user can control the appliance with buttons displayed on a touch panel attached to the remote control. The system is based on a high-accuracy indoor positioning system embedded in a smart house. We evaluated the proposed system through an experiment, and results show that the system can be used in daily life.
