In this paper, we propose a model-based approach to recover 3D hand pose from 2D images. To this end, we describe the hand structure using a compact 3D articulated model and reformulate pose estimation as a binary image segmentation problem aiming to separate the hand from the background. We propose generative models for hand and background pixels leading to a log-likelihood objective function which aims to enclose hand-like pixels within the projected silhouette of the 3D model while excluding… CONTINUE READING
