Title: METHOD FOR GESTURE BASED HUMAN-MACHINE INTERACTION, PORTABLE ELECTRONIC DEVICE AND GESTURE BASED HUMAN-MACHINE INTERFACE SYSTEM
Abstract:
A method for gesture based human-machine interaction comprises determining an environmental status of an electronic device (D) and operating the electronic device in one of at least two gesture modes depending on the environmental status. During a first gesture mode, detection of gestures of a first set of gestures is enabled. The method further comprises detecting a movement of an object and, when operating in the first gesture mode, determining if the detected movement corresponds to a gesture of the first set of gestures. The method further comprises, if the detected movement corresponds to a gesture of the first set of gestures, carrying out a first command of the electronic device (D) associated to the gesture corresponding to the detected movement.
