Hidden Markov Models for Gesture Recognition

  title={Hidden Markov Models for Gesture Recognition},
  author={Donald Tanguay},
Understanding human motions can be posed as a pattern recognition problem. Humans express time-varying motion patterns (gestures), such as a wave, in order to convey a message to a recipient. If a computer can detect and distinguish these human motion patterns, the desired message can be reconstructed, and the computer can respond appropriately. This thesis describes an approach to recognize domain-dependent gestures using the statistical pattern recognition tool, the Hidden Markov Model (HMM… CONTINUE READING
