Interaction with appliances present in an environment can be difficult for people who have mobility problems (such as the elderly or moving out of a wheelchair). This paper presents an approach based on the use of an Inertial Measurement Unit which identifies human movements from two points of view: on the one hand, the user can specify the object with which it wants to interact by simply pointing it with his arm, from the other he can pass a command to the object indicated by an appropriate gesture of the arm. The paper describes the operating modes of the approach, the Hw/Sw architecture used and the underlying mathematical analysis.
