This paper presents a non-intrusive approach for view-invariant hand gesture recognition. In fact, the representation of gestures changes dynamically depending on camera viewpoints. Therefore, the different positions of the user between the training phase and the evaluation phase can severely compromise the recognition process. The proposed approach involves the calibration of two Microsoft Kinect depth cameras to allow the 3D modeling of the dynamic hands movements. The gestures are modeled as… CONTINUE READING
