A Study of Kinect-Based Smart TV Control Mode

  • Conference paper

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNISA,volume 8528)


TV plays a more and more important role in daily life. And it will be a protagonist in our home. However, the progress of smart TV control mode did not catch up with the development of smart TV’s software and hardware. In this paper, a survey was conducted to confirm the way of future smart TV control mode. According to the results of the survey, an experiment was executed in order to investigate design parameters of the new smart TV control mode. Therefore, the precautions on design the smart TV control mode was proposed.
