Ability To Quickly And Easily Control Smart Devices With Your Smartphone Is Key To The Next Level Of Convenience
Instant accessibility to the smart home devices on smartphone is the next level of convenience that researchers at Carnegie Mellon University are working upon. Rather than scrolling through endless apps to identify the correct app, the technology focuses on the electromagnetic noise being emitted from household electrical appliances to pre-load the smartphone screen with the control options of the device detected.
The system, called Deus EM-Machina, leverages the fact that electromagnetic noise is emitted from everyday electrical objects to power a device classifier — they’re using a smartphone kitted out with an EM-sensor that can detect what IoT device it’s resting on — enabling contextual functionality to be pushed to the smartphone screen so it can be a dynamic control device.
Future smart home devices will carry their own unique EM signatures which can be pre-loaded on the smartphone with corresponding control app for quick and immediate control access. From controlling a thermostat, configuring a router, auto reading a PDF document to printing the document on mobile screen, the applications seem endless. However, challenges like distinguishing between multiple similar devices to detecting devices switched off need to be addressed.
