Ecosystem for Smart Glass Technologies

Smart Mirror Application

The objective of ESGT is to design and develop a robust hardware and software ecosystem to support all glass IoT devices. The prototype to demonstrate ESGT is a smart mirror. The user will be able to interact with the smart mirror using gestures, captured either through capacitive floating touch or a stereoscopic sensor. The gestures will be used to turn on and off the display, interact with on screen data, or cause a refresh if necessary. The data will be pulled through Wi-Fi from the common ESGT software framework, which is hosted remotely on the cloud. Information such as calendar, date, time, and weather will be displayed near the edges of the mirror, so that the user’s own reflection remains unobstructed. A smartphone application will be used for first time setup and configuration. The application will use Bluetooth to communicate with the mirror. Below are a list of components for two prototypes we plan on testing.
