We present a robust method for capturing articulated hand motions in realtime using a single depth camera. Our system is based on a realtime registration process that accurately reconstructs hand poses by fitting a 3D articulated hand model to depth images. We register the hand model using depth, silhouette, and temporal information. To effectively map(More)
Modern systems for real-time hand tracking rely on a combination of discriminative and generative approaches to robustly recover hand poses. Generative approaches require the specification of a geometric model. In this paper, we propose a the use of sphere-meshes as a novel geometric representation for real-time generative hand tracking. How tightly this(More)
By close analogy with multiferroic materials with coexisting long-range electric and magnetic orders a "multiglass" scenario of two different glassy states is observed in Sr(0.98)Mn(0.02)TiO(3) ceramics. Sr-site substituted Mn2+ ions are at the origin of both a polar and a spin glass with glass temperatures T(g) approximately equal to 38 K and < or =34 K,(More)
Ceramic Ba(0.6)Sr(0.4)TiO(3) (BST-0.6) samples were studied in the broad spectral range of 10(6)-10(14) Hz by using several dielectric techniques in between 20 and 800 K. The dominant dielectric dispersion mechanism in the paraelectric phase was shown to be of strongly anharmonic soft-phonon origin. The whole soft-mode response in the vicinity of the(More)
After the examination and hygienic assessment of 53 types of hand-held Soviet and foreign machines, 30 types of them were selected because according to their vibration and ergonomic characteristics they could be recommended for wide application in automotive industry. Some causes for deterioration of vibration characteristics of hand-held machines while(More)
Polar behaviour in K(1-x)Li(x)TaO(3) ceramics with x = 0:02, 0.05 and 0.10, processed by the conventional solid state method, is studied by Raman spectroscopy and thermally stimulated depolarization current (TSDC) techniques between 10 and 290 K. The TO1 mode of KTaO(3) is revealed to harden in the whole temperature range and to split in the low-temperature(More)
