A New GNG Graph-Based Hand Gesture Recognition Approach

  title={A New GNG Graph-Based Hand Gesture Recognition Approach},
  author={Narges Mirehi and Maryam Tahmasbi},
Hand Gesture Recognition (HGR) is of major importance for Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) applications. In this paper, we present a new hand gesture recognition approach called GNG-IEMD. In this approach, first, we use a Growing Neural Gas (GNG) graph to model the image. Then we extract features from this graph. These features are not geometric or pixel-based, so do not depend on scale, rotation, and articulation. The dissimilarity between hand gestures is measured with a novel Improved Earth… Expand


Hand gesture recognition using topological features
A set of meaningful shape features based on a graph constructed by Growing Neural Gas (GNG) algorithm are introduced, constructed from topological properties of this graph to improve stability against different deformations, scale, and noise. Expand

Superpixel-Based Hand Gesture Recognition With Kinect Depth Camera
A novel distance metric, superpixel earth mover's distance (SP-EMD), is proposed to measure the dissimilarity between the hand gestures, which is robust to distortion and articulation, but also invariant to scaling, translation and rotation with proper preprocessing. Expand
