Smart HMI with hand gesture control

Furniture is the next frontier of digitalization era: electronics can be integrated in any object of domestic and office settings, creating a new human interaction with the environment.

Making a lamp a smart HMI that can interact through hand gestures at distance, controlling lighting in terms of brightness, color as well as change of functionalities. In addition, the lamp can be connected to an IoT system and controlled via smartphone.

EMA designed an electronic solution matching the mechanical constraints given by the interior architect, producing a prototype of a lamp that could be controlled with complex hand gestures (without touching it), lighting up in different modes and colors, creating effects and games and communicating wirelessly with other devices and smartphone.
