Using Triaxial Acceleration Sensors as Input Devices for Disabled Persons
We propose the use of triaxial acceleration sensors as input devices for disabled persons. The use of accelerometers for interacting with computer systems is explained. Different possible applications are shown. Experiments with a commercially available sensor module are presentated. Problems are discussed and future improvements are suggested.
