Effective time management is one of
the most important factors for success and productivity in a person’s
day-to-day life especially if the person is physically challenged. With the
increasing integration of technology in our lives, maintaining an efficient
schedule has become both easier and more difficult. Keeping up to date with
appointments, Twitter, news, social media, and other things is made easier
through technology such as tablets, PCs, and smart phones yet also provide
distractions that can interrupt anyone’s routine. Technology has become another
task in the day that time must be allotted for. In the finite time of the day,
technology needs to be designed to work within our schedule and not be an extra
piece to it.

Smart mirrors, such as Magic Mirror
and have recently started to be developed by people in the Maker community,
with varying degrees of interactivity. However, so far, the features of these
mirrors have been limited that cannot suit to the needs of the physically
challenged.

The smart mirror must offer benefits
of using modern technology such as Internet of Things(IoT) while integrating
seamlessly into the standard bathroom routines of most people. The smart mirror
must be simple and as intuitive as possible. The smart mirror would be used to
merge technology and the need for information into anyone’s daily schedule.
With the mirror in place, the user could interact and obtain the information
they want during their normal morning and night bathroom routines.

This smart mirror aims to reduce and
possibly eliminate the need for the user to make time in their daily morning or
nightly routine to check their PC, tablet, or smartphone for the information
they need. The mirror will provide the information with little to no effort
from the user with the goal of not being a burden that he or she must maintain.
The mirror wouldn’t be another activity, rather an enhancement to the already
common use of mirrors in most modern bathrooms.

The mirror will do the thinking for
the user. First, it will turn on and off by itself. Then, it will update with
the user’s calendar schedule, to-do lists, Twitter, news, and weather. The
information wouldn’t be thrown in the user’s face, but unobtrusively displayed
on the edges of the mirror to still allow use of the actual mirror. The use of
touch-less gestures will keep things simple and easy to use. No keyboards to
try to keep dry and clean. The gestures will also allow the user to still use
the mirror despite whether their hands are wet or dirty. The mirror provides
common information most people check their smartphones or tablets for, such as
weather, news, Twitter and schedules. This allows the users to read, think, and
plan their day while getting ready in the morning or night. The mirror has to
be fun as well. It will provide music playback that can be controlled by their
voice so there is no need for a mouse or keyboard.

The Internet of Things is a concept
defined as a network of connected physical objects. It’s often viewed as the
next step for the internet. Recently it has gained a lot of popularity
predicting that in the future most everyday objects will be connected to each
other and will be able to interact in smart ways. The Smart Mirror will
eventually become one of these connected objects in our households and if we
think about it being able to communicate with other objects the possibilities
become endless

Methodology

Our project phases are defined broadly in four categories,
according to the scope of work involved in each: Design, Microcontroller
Programming, Display Programming, and Fabrication.

1) MAGIC MIRROR TABLE FOR SOCIAL-EMOTION
ALLEVIATION

IN THE SMART HOME

purpose a
mirror table system which is able to aware the social emotion of the viewer. In
terms of implementation, the proposed mirror table

system has
a camera to capture the viewer’s images. By analyzing the viewer’s facial
expressions, the system is able to determine his/her emotion. After knowing the
(social) emotion of the viewer, the proposed mirror system can properly
response to the emotion of the viewer and alleviate the viewer’s emotion if
negative enough. In addition, the proposed system has a reminder mode for the
viewer to checkthe calendar. Thus, in a broad sense, the proposed mirrorsystem
provides a social relationship between the viewer andthe mirror.

If the
monitor turns off, the one-way mirror acts as a regular mirror. On the other
hand, if the monitor turns on, the mirror is transparent for viewers to see the
screen of the monitor. The power of the monitor is controlled by the system
based on the state of the operation. On top of the monitor is a camera for
detecting the emotion of the viewer based on his/her facial expression. To
guarantee sufficient lighting for the camera, the system also controls anLED
light source. The system connects to speaker(s) by an USB control box. The
control box also connects to motion sensors and the LED light source. The
system controller is a computer mounted on the base of the mirror (and
monitor).

both as a
result of the pull from the general population, keen to improve well-being and
early detection of possibly seri- ous health conditions and the push from the
industry eager to translate the current significant progress in computer vision
and machine learning into commercial products. One of such systems is the Wize
Mirror, built as a result of the FP7 funded SEMEOTICONS (SEMEiotic Oriented
Technology for Individu- als CardiOmetabolic risk self-assessmeNt and
Self-monitoring) project.

FEATURES IN SMART MIRROR:

Smart
mirror has self- monitoring features which recognizes. humans animals or any
movable and visible living things. The information wouldn’t be thrown in the
user’s face, but unobtrusively displayed on the edges of the mirror to still
allow use of the actual mirror. The use of touch-less gestures will keep things
simple and easy to use. No keyboards to try to keep dry and clean. The gestures
will also allow the user to still use the mirror despite whether their hands
are wet or dirty.

In this
paper, we present a novel multisensorydevice, the Wize Mirror, which is under
development in the EU FP7 Project SEMEOTICONS. The Wize Mirror detects and
monitors over time semeiotic face signs related to cardio-metabolic risk, and
encourages users to reduce their risk by improving their lifestyle.

FEATURES IN SMART MIRROR:

Various
sensors were included in this smart mirror like gas sensor motion sensor,
temperature sensor, etc. The mirror provides common information most people
check their smartphones or tablets for, such as weather, news, Twitter and
schedules. This allows the users to read, think, and plan their day while
getting ready in the morning or night. The mirror has to be fun as well. It
will provide music playback that can be controlled by their voice so there is no
need for a mouse or keyboard.

It is a
concept of smart home-based Internet of Things (IoT). This system allows users
to access information and also control the lights in the house. Relevant
information can be traced such as time and date, weather, warning, traffic, and
location map. The system applies Sonus technology as a medium of interaction
between people and systems. So, users need to provide instructions to the
system orally to acquire the system’s response. The methodological approach
used in this project is The Evolutionary Prototyping which gathers all
requirements and designs the system in a quick method. A prototype is built to
evaluate and deliver feedback. Improvements will be made to enhance the
prototype, catering to user’s satisfaction.

FEATURES IN SMART MIRROR:

The
Internet of Things is a concept defined as a network of connected physical
objects. It’s often viewed as the next step for the internet. Recently it has
gained a lot of popularity predicting that in the future most everyday objects
will be connected to each other and will be able to interact in smart ways. The
Smart Mirror will eventually become one of these connected objects in our
households and if we think about it being able to communicate with other
objects the possibilities become endless. Devices can be accessed through the
voice transmission and also manually. it can access through any device that is
attached to the smart mirror.
