  • Guide Puneetha.M Lecturer dept of cse Smart quillSmart quill By Reshma.K.R 4GW07CS063
  • INTRODUCTION y Smart quill was invented by Lyndsey Williams of Cambridge University along with British Telecommunications. y Smart quill is a pen, which remembers the words that writes and then transfer them into computer text. y Smart quill contains sensors that records movement by using by using earth¶s gravity irrespective of the platform used
  • WORKING y Smart quill works by measuring the pen¶s movements and matching them to the movements that produce the words and letters programmed into its memory. y User can enter information into these pens by simply pressing a button and accelerometers are used to sense the movements of the pen using earths gravity system
  • FEATURES DISPLAY SCREEN The text written can be read on a tiny screen on the side of the pen and it has a light at its tip which allow the user to use it even dark
  • HANDWRITING RECOGNITION AND SIGNATURE VERIFICATION y User can train the pen to recognize particular handwriting y If someone else picks your Smart Quill and tries to write with it- it won¶t
  • HANDWRITING RECOGNITION AND SIGNATURE VERIFICATION(contd«) There are two techniques used for this purpose ‡ Accelerometer Technology ‡ Handwriting recognition Software
  • ACCELEROMETER TECHNOLOGY y This technology uses a device called Accelerometer which is used for measuring motion y A tiny accelerometer in a pen could be used to detect the stops and starts, arcs and loops of handwriting, and transmit this information to a small microprocessor that would make sense of it as text.
  • ACCELEROMETER TECHNOLOGY y Two types of accelerometer 1)Two axes accelerometer:- measures acceleration in two axes. ex..ADXL202 accelerometer 2)Three axes accelerometer:-measures acceleration in three axes. ex..tronics +/-2g
  • HANDWRITING RECOGNITION SOFTWARE y This software embedded in the microprocessor of the pen is used to recognize handwriting of the user. y Two phases in handwriting recognition Handwriting transcription Handwriting recognition
  • HANDWRITING TRANSCRIPTION y In this phase, the recorded acceleration signals are then transcripted to it¶s original form. Method y Firstly, we have to know pen¶s spatial orientation. y Secondly, we have to succeed in the double integration.
  • PROTOCOL Fig. represents the acceleration signals recordedFig. represents the acceleration signals recorded while one is writing a small capital Bwhile one is writing a small capital B
  • Transcripted signal
  • HANDWRITING RECOGNITION y In this phase the characters and signatures are recognized. method y We use a simple Euclidian distance as the comparison process, and of course the decision process is the smaller distance found
  • PROTOCOL In Fig , we can see the accelerometers signals recordedIn Fig , we can see the accelerometers signals recorded during Yanis signing processduring Yanis signing process
  • DISPLAY SCROLLS USING TILT SENSORS y By tilting the pen user can chose applications and scroll through without using scroll buttons y This is done by using Micro Electro-Mechanical Systems(MEMS) tilt sensors to measure tilt angle with earth
  • COMMUNICATION WITH OTHER DEVICES y The current prototype hooks up to the PC via a cable and electronic docking station called as ³inkwell ³ y Future models can receive email and pager messages via a wireless messaging system.
  • MEMORY y It uses 4MB EEPROM . y Up to 10 pages of notes can be stored locally on the pen memory. y The data is stored in the pen locally until it is copied to the Personal Computer
  • POWER y Smart quill works on AAA(Antiaircraft Artillery Battery) battery. It can continuously work 25 hrs with a single AAA battery y The pen has automatic on/off system.
  • ADVANTAGES y DzSpatial sensing systemdz y Intuitive user interface y Security y 3D mouse y Power saving y Smart quill is all mobile
  • DISADVANTAGES y It has accelerometer errors. y It is inconvenient for persons with handtremors. y Bigger size than a normal pen. y Errors are introduced in the system due to thermal variations in the spring
  • APPLICATIONS 1. Replace keyboard with SmartQuill 2. Input to other devices 3. Handheld computer applications 4. The wireless messaging system which allows two way communications 5. Supports speech recognition. 6. Third party to add on applications
  • CONCLUSION y The estimated cost of this futuristic pen is only $100. y SmartQuill is convenient for use. y Keyboards become so tiny you require needle-like fingers to operate them and screens that need constant cursor controls to read simple text. The introduction of SmartQuill is the best solution for this
