Snap It App Android

In homes and offices are more and more devices that can be controlled by using the Smartphone, but often, each of them needs its own app for this. A new system is intended to stop.

What if you could connect your Smartphone with all possible other “smart” devices by you simply take a picture of them?

That’s the idea behind a research project called snap to it, work on the researchers of at Carnegie Mellon University and two other universities.

While an app is used for Android smartphones to take a picture of, for example, a printer or a video projector. The system then finds out which devices it is, and sends the necessary interface information to your phone. In this way, for example, a document can be print or upload a presentation and control how the researchers in a video demonstrating.

The aim: The growing number of Internet-enabled devices to communicate using many different standards and need often also their own apps to control, should be easier to use – especially when being located in a new environment. A technical paper about the project will be presented at the ACM CHI 2016 in California in may, a Conference on human-machine interaction.

“The ability to get where I have previously never been places, and just to be able to use the existing technology if I am authorized to do so, is simply delightful,” says Anind Dey, an associate professor at Carnegie Mellon University and one of the co-authors of the attachment.

According to Adrian de Freitas, graduate student and lead author of the papers, snap-to-it works behind the scenes by it shipped the taken photo to all devices, which are located in the network on the ground. An image recognition algorithm then finds out which of them you want to connect. In addition, also details of the location and the direction in which the phone shows, be taken into account. If Snap-to-it can not really decide, it sends a list of his five best tips. So to work, the system must be set up before on the networked equipment: you have to take pictures of them and determine which of its functions by users of snap to it may be used.

As demonstrated, the app without filtering out blurry or recorded from unfavourable angles photos could connect the user with the correct device with just one reference image in 82 percent of cases. Now, researchers experiment that, to use another Smartphone sensors-as a barometer – to more accurately determine the position in buildings. Thus, snap-to-it could be even better for the user to find the correct device.

Also, the team thinking how the concept could be still use. Possibly, you could shoot a device, for example, to get more information about it, or control multiple devices with the help of a group of photos at the same time.
