Abstract

This paper presents a prototype of a smart home control system operated through motion matching input. In motion matching, targets move continuously in a singular and pre-defined path; users interact with these targets by tracking their movement for a short period of time. Our prototype captures user input through the motion sensors embedded in off-the-shelf smartwatches while users track the moving targets with their arms and hands. The wearable nature of the tracking system makes our prototype ideal for interaction with numerous devices in a smart home.
