Over the last few years, researchers have proposed several WiFi based gesture recognition systems that can recognize predefined gestures performed by users at runtime. As most environments are inhabited by multiple users, the true potential of WiFi based gesture recognition can be unleashed only when each user can independently define the actions that the system should take when the user performs a certain predefined gesture. To enable this, a gesture recognition system should not only be able…

Multi-User Gesture Recognition Using WiFi
TLDR
The key idea behind WiMU is that when it detects that some users have performed some gestures simultaneously, it first automatically determines the number of simultaneously performed gestures (Na) and then, using the training samples collected from a single user, generates virtual samples for various plausible combinations of Na gestures.
Position and Orientation Agnostic Gesture Recognition Using WiFi
TLDR
To recognize gestures of a user at runtime, as soon as the user performs a gesture, WiAG first automatically estimates the configuration of the user and then evaluates the gesture against the classification model corresponding to that estimated configuration.
