A cooperative approach for handshake detection based on body sensor networks
The handshake gesture is an important part of the social etiquette in many cultures. It lies at the core of many human interactions, either in formal or informal settings: exchanging greetings, offering congratulations, and finalizing a deal are all activities that typically either start or finish with a handshake. The automated detection of a handshake can enable wide range of pervasive computing scanarios; in particular, different types of information can be exchanged and processed among the handshaking persons, depending on the physical/logical contexts where they are located and on their mutual acquaintance. This paper proposes a novel handshake detection system based on body sensor networks consisting of a resource-constrained wristwearable sensor node and a more capable base station. The system uses an effective collaboration technique among body sensor networks of the handshaking persons which minimizes errors associated with the application of classification algorithms and impr...
