In this paper, we propose an automatic system for recognizing continuous gestures in real-time, including Arabic numbers (0-9) and alphabets (A-Z). We present an improved method for hand area detection and segmentation based on YCbCr and HSI mixed skin color space, the improved CAMSHIFT algorithm used for hand tracking. Orientation dynamic features are obtained from spatiotemporal trajectories and then quantized to generate its code words. An improved HMM-FNN model is proposed for gesture…
