Gesture-Controlled Interfaces for Self-Service Machines
Tuesday, January 02 2007
Potential advantages include immunity to wear and increased safety
Gesture-controlled interfaces are software-driven systems that facilitate device control by translating visual hand and body signals into commands. Such interfaces could be especially attractive for controlling self-service machines (SSMs) — for example, public information kiosks, ticket dispensers, gasoline pumps, and automated teller machines (see figure).
