But in an emergency or in some scenarios which not applicable for finger to operate phone , it will be a tedious process if following those steps to use it, valuable time may be lost.

Description: Smart phones is usually equipped with bevy of sensors -- accelerometer, compass, gyroscope, light and proximity. Here with Gyroscope user can measure angle of mobile disposition, and with Acceleration sensor, user can measure mention direction of mobile, based on these data, user can calculate the mention trace and speed of smart phone. Now user can define various serial mention traces for mobile, by recognizing pre-defined whole or part of motion traces, mobile will activate associated functions of System/Applications associated in multiple layers of menus.

Use cases: Step 1: Choose a frequently-used application or functions. Such as quick access to enter multilayered menu “Install OS”, or simply taking photos or starting music player or calling the emergency call to police or important people and so on.
