This paper presents an inertial-sensor-based digital pen (inertial pen) and its associated dynamic time warping (DTW)-based recognition algorithm for handwriting and gesture recognition. Users hold the inertial pen to write numerals or English lowercase letters and make hand gestures with their preferred handheld style and speed. The inertial signals generated by hand motions are wirelessly transmitted to a computer for online recognition. The proposed DTW-based recognition algorithm includes the procedures of inertial signal acquisition, signal preprocessing, motion detection, template selection, and recognition. We integrate signals collected from an accelerometer, a gyroscope, and a magnetometer into a quaternion-based complementary filter for reducing the integral errors caused by the signal drift or intrinsic noise of the gyroscope, which might reduce the accuracy of the orientation estimation. Furthermore, we have developed a minimal intra-class to maximal inter-class based template selection method (min-max template selection method) for a DTW recognizer to obtain a superior class separation for improved recognition. Experimental results have successfully validated the effectiveness of the DTW-based recognition algorithm for online handwriting and gesture recognition using the inertial pen.
