Title: Motion Tracking and Its Applications


Video games, Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), and Smart appliances (e.g., smart TVs and drones) all call for a new way for users to interact and control them. Motivated by this observation, we have developed a series of novel motion tracking technologies using acoustic signals. A unique feature of our approach is that it can achieve mm-level tracking accuracy on smartphones without special hardware. We further develop a few interesting applications on top of our motion tracking technology.
