Abstract

This paper presents a Kinect-based midair handwritten number recognition that can be used to dial a phone number and set a countdown timer. When cooking in the kitchen, making a phone call or setting a kitchen timer is often inconvenient. This number recognition system was based on previous studies of television remote controls. An average recognition accuracy of 94.6% was achieved for each number by using multiple segments and scaled coding. Two Android apps were developed for the recognition system. In addition, the four direction recognition system developed in a previous study was improved, increasing the recognition reliability. Experimental results verified the effectiveness of the system.
