Using modern interaction methods and devices provides a more natural and intuitive interaction. Currently, only mobile phones and game consoles which are supporting such gesture-based interactions have good payment-rates. This comes along, that such devices will bought not only by the traditional technical experienced consumers. The interaction with such devices becomes so easy, that also older people playing or working with them. Especially older people have more handicaps, so for them it is hard to read small text, like they are used as description to buttons on remote controls for televisions. They also become fast overstrained, so that bigger technical systems are no help for them. If it is possible to interact with gestures, all these problems can be avoided. But to allow an intuitive and easy gesture interaction, gestures have to be supported, which are easy to understand.
Because of that fact, in this paper we tried to identify intuitive gestures for common interaction scenarios on computer-based systems for uses in ambient assisted environment. In this evaluation, the users should commit their opinion of intuitive gestures for different presented scenarios/tasks. Basing on these results, intuitively useable systems can be developed, so that users are able to communicate with technical systems on more intuitive level with accelerometer-based devices.
