Human Skin as an Input Surface

Abstract: In this paper, an attempt has been made to utilize the natural acoustic and mechanical wave conduction property of human skin along with simple technological tools to achieve high accuracy for classification of taps done onto the skin so, that it may be use in future to create interactive interface technologies. Previous work in this field employed very expensive and sophisticated vibration detection approach which was not preferable for layman use both due to its physical size and cost. We in this paper try to re duce both these important parameters by employing accelerometers instead of vibration sensors.
