Keywords:Mobile interaction, Hand gesture, Distance-measuring sensor

In this paper, we propose a gesture input method around a smartphone. Each gesture is detected by a distance-measuring sensor array attached to the side of a smartphone. We evaluated the accuracy of gesture recognition, and obtained an average accuracy of about 92.9% when identifying six distinct gestures.
