Motion Tracking and Its Applications

Duke Computer Science/Electrical Computer Engineering Colloquium
Speaker Name
Lili Qiu
Date and Time
Lunch served at 11:45 am.

Video games, Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), and Smart appliances (e.g., smart TVs and drones) all all for a new way for users to interact and control them. Motivated by this observation, we have developed a series of novel motion tracking technologies using acoustic signals. A unique feature of our approach is that it can achieve mm-level tracking accuracy on smartphones without special hardware. We further develop a few interesting applications on top of our motion tracking technology such as a follow-me drone and acoustic imaging on mobile phones.
