Foot Motion Recognition for Human–Computer Interaction
In this paper, we introduce a foot motion recognition system for the human–computer interaction. Our system consists of five pressure sensors in a shoe, 3-axis acceleration sensor in the front of the shoe, and signal processing unit on FPGA. Bluetooth establishes the wireless communication channel between our system and a host PC. Experimental results demonstrate the feasibility of our proposal for human–computer interaction, by providing full control of the host PC though the foot motion recognition.
