A new arduino source code file named Xtencion_KernelSubtraction has been added which implements the kernel subtraction method to detect swipes. So we define a array of distances that best represents a swipe, kernel. The kernel array is of size equal to *sample_size*. Incoming distance readings are stored in a buffer of size equal to *sample_size. *The kernel is subtracted from the buffer and the difference is stored in another array. Ideally, the difference array should be an array of zeroes. Although, in real world humans may not be able to reproduce the same swipe repeatedly. Hence, we compute the mean and standard deviation of the difference array. Whenever the mean and standard deviation is inside defined limits a swipe is recognised.
