Appearance-Based Hand Sign Recognition from Intensity Image Sequences

  author={Yuntao Cui and Juyang Weng},

In this paper, we present a new approach to recognizing hand signs. In this approach, motion recognition (the hand movement) is tightly coupled with spatial recognition (hand shape). The system uses multiclass, multidimensional discriminant analysis to automatically select the most discriminating linear features for gesture classiication. A recursive partition tree approximator is proposed to do classiication. This approach combined with our previous work on hand segmen-tation forms a new… CONTINUE READING
