Personalized Human-Swarm Interaction through Hand Motion [article]

Matteo Macchini, Ludovic De Matteïs, Fabrizio Schiano, Dario Floreano
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We implemented a machine-learning algorithm to define a personalized Body-Machine Interface (BoMI) based only on a short calibration procedure.  ...  This choice makes our interface portable since it does not rely on a centralized system for tracking the human body.  ...  Based on an individual calibration procedure, personalized interfaces have shown superior results to generic ones in terms of learning time and performance [26] , [27] .  ...
