Touchless hand gesture recognition systems are becoming important in automotive user interfaces as they improve safety and comfort. Various computer vision algorithms have employed color and depth cameras for hand gesture recognition, but robust classification of gestures from different subjects performed under widely varying lighting conditions is still(More)
— We propose a novel multi-sensor system for accurate and power-efficient dynamic car-driver hand-gesture recognition, using a short-range radar, a color camera, and a depth camera, which together make the system robust against variable lighting conditions. We present a procedure to jointly calibrate the radar and depth sensors. We employ convolutional deep(More)
Automatic detection and classification of dynamic hand gestures in real-world systems intended for human computer interaction is challenging as: 1) there is a large diversity in how people perform gestures, making detection and classification difficult, 2) the system must work online in order to avoid noticeable lag between performing a gesture and its(More)
—Intelligent driver assistance systems have become important in the automotive industry. One key element of such systems is a smart user interface that tracks and recognizes drivers' hand gestures. Hand gesture sensing using traditional computer vision techniques is challenging because of wide variations in lighting conditions, e.g. inside a car. A(More)

Driver distraction is a serious threat to automotive safety. The visual-manual interfaces in cars are a source of distraction for drivers. Automotive touch-less hand gesture-based user interfaces can help to reduce driver distraction and enhance safety and comfort. The choice of hand gestures in automotive interfaces is central to their success and(More)
We propose a new framework for pruning convolutional kernels in neural networks to enable efficient inference, focusing on transfer learning where large and potentially unwieldy pretrained networks are adapted to specialized tasks. We interleave greedy criteria-based pruning with fine-tuning by backpropagation—a computation-ally efficient procedure that(More)
We propose a new formulation for pruning convolutional kernels in neural networks to enable efficient inference. We interleave greedy criteria-based pruning with fine-tuning by backpropagation—a computationally efficient procedure that maintains good generalization in the pruned network. We propose a new criterion based on Taylor expansion that approximates(More)
This paper presents a novel framework to combine multiple layers and modalities of deep neural networks for video classification. We first propose a multilayer strategy to simultaneously capture a variety of levels of abstraction and invariance in a network, where the convolutional and fully connected layers are effectively represented by our proposed(More)
