Topic: Gesture recognition with both accelerometer and gyroscope (Read 4657 times) previous topic - next topic

HI,
I was wondering if it would be of any use to combine accelerometer and gyroscope data for gesture recognition with the built-in Intel Curie PME. Up to now my tests have showed pretty limited results with most of the time no detection of the letter.
What do you think?

If your gestures require only the yaw, pitch and roll data, and it's changes, then you can check out the MadgwickAHRS library that converts the six axes of the IMU (gx, gy, gz, ax, ay, az) to yaw, pitch and roll values. You can also combine those with the values from the accelerometer, if motion in the XYZ axes (not just rotation) is also a factor.
