Towards Precise Human-Machine Interaction: Sensors and Systems for Hand Sign Recognition

Dr. Olfa Kanoun, DL of IEEE IMS then discussed following:-

  1. Hybrid Societies
  2. Gesture Recognition for embodiment of Interactions.
  3. Measurement Methods for Hand gesture recognition.


Artificial bodies in shared environments of manufacturing are now getting involved. Virtual reality is also becoming part of this environment. Automotive Human factors, Driverless cars, Drones, Robots, smart agents, (avatars)

Dr. Olfa discussed. Medical Diagnostics b. Muscle rehabilitation, Muscle Degeneration (sarcopenia), Symmetry, Epilepsy related issues. She further discussed Depth Sensors, Markers, Single camera, Stereo Camera, Image based solutions. Measurement method for gesture recognition by use of EMG. Then she took overview of various measurement methods. Smart Band design, frequency Multiple Sensor glove range of 1 kHz to 10Mhz.with excitation current of 0.1 mA to 0.5 mA.  Multi sensor Glove with accelerometer, Magnetometer, gyro, was explained.

 Question and answer session was equally interesting.

Olfa Kanoun is professor for measurement and sensor technology since 2007 at TU Chemnitz, Germany. She graduated in electrical engineering at the Technische Universität München from in 1996, where she specialized in the field of electronics. Her PhD at the University of the Bundeswehr in Munich was awarded in 2001 by the Commission of Professors in Metrology (AHMT e. V.) in Germany.

In 2015 she was awarded by the Tunisian ministry of social affairs for her scientific excellence and outstanding achievements. In her research she focuses on sensors, measurement systems and measurement methods. Since 2001 she is developing new sensors and measurement solutions based on impedance spectroscopy in the fields of battery diagnosis, bio-impedance spectroscopy, inductive sensors, capacitive sensors, conductivity sensors and material testing. She has a deep expertize in the field of energy harvesting and energy transmission and develops since many years successfully flexible Nano composite sensors for force, temperature and humidity measurements.

As senior IEEE member, she volunteers for the Instrumentation and Measurement Society and for IEEE. In 2004 she founded an IEEE IM Chapter and in 2014 she initiated a student branch at TU Chemnitz. She serves as co-chair of the Technical Committee on nanotechnology in instrumentation and measurement (TC 34). In 2001 she was co-founder of the international multi-conference on systems, signals and devices (SSD) and in 2008 she initiated the annual International Workshop on Impedance Spectroscopy (IWIS).

She is author or co-author of 7 books, 52 papers in international journals with peer review, 110 papers in proceedings of international conferences and 6 journal special issues. She is member of the editorial board of Technisches Messen (De Gruyter) and associate editor of the journal on Digital Signals and Smart Systems (IJDSSS, Inderscience) Nanotechnology Council Rep (2017-2018); TC-34 Member
