The emergence of hand gesture recognition technologies has enabled a brand new medium of human computer interaction. Harman International hopes to apply hand gesture recognition in their home audio products to create a user experience that mirrors how humans interact with each other. Harman International seeks to do this while
addressing privacy and diversity concerns associated with camera-based gesture recognition methods. Therefore, our team’s project is to research and develop a low-cost radar/millimeter wave-based far field gesture recognition system with an emphasis on media control.
