  author={Wencan Cheng and Jae Hyun Park and Jong Hwan Ko},
With increasing applications of 3D hand pose estimation in various human-computer interaction applications, convolution neural networks (CNNs) based estimation models have been actively explored. However, the existing models require complex architectures or redundant computational resources to trade with the acceptable accuracy. To tackle this limitation, this paper proposes HandFoldingNet, an accurate and efficient hand pose estimator that regresses the hand joint locations from the normalized… 


Hand PointNet: 3D Hand Pose Estimation Using Point Sets
The proposed Hand PointNet directly processes the 3D point cloud that models the visible surface of the hand for pose regression, and takes the normalized point cloud as the input to capture complex hand structures and accurately regress a low dimensional representation of the3D hand pose.

Hand Pose Estimation and Hand Shape Classification Using Multi-layered Randomized Decision Forests
Two novel types of multi---layered RDFs are introduced: Global Expert Network (GEN) and Local Expert network (LEN), which achieve significantly better hand pose estimates than a single---layering skeleton estimator and generalize better to previously unseen hand poses.
Point-to-Point Regression PointNet for 3D Hand Pose Estimation
The proposed Point-to-Point Regression PointNet directly takes the 3D point cloud as input and outputs point-wise estimations, i.e., heat-maps and unit vector fields on the point cloud, representing the closeness and direction from every point in the pointCloud to the hand joint.
