Abstract

The objective of this project was to design and implement an automated tracking and user identification system for use in a smart home environment. Most existing smart home systems require users to either carry some sort of object that the house can identify or provide some sort of identification when they issue a command. Our project seeks to eliminate these inconveniences and enable users to issue commands to their smart home through simple, non-intrusive voice prompts. Microsoft¢s Kinect sensor unit was chosen as our design platform for its functionality and ease of use.
