Integrating Gesture Recognition in Airplane Seats for In-Flight Entertainment
In order to reduce both the psychological and physical stress in air travel, sensors are integrated in airplane seats to detect the gestures as input for in-flight entertainment systems. The content provided by the entertainment systems helps to reduce the psychological stress, and the gesture recognition is used as input for the content and hence stimulates people to move, which as a result would reduce the physical stress as well.
