Researchers at the University of Waterloo have developed a strategy that could reduce the level of frustration users experience when giving gesture commands to smart devices and smart environments.
In a study that outlines the new strategy, the researchers found that when developing smart devices to recognize gesture input, the adage, “If at first, you don’t succeed, try, try again,” can be applied to boost users’ perceptions of system reliability.
