Human-Computer Interaction Using Robust Gesture Recognition

  title={Human-Computer Interaction Using Robust Gesture Recognition},
  author={M. Endler and Oleg Lobachev and Michael Guthe},
We present a detector cascade for robust real-time tracking of hand movements on consumer-level hardware. We adapt existing detectors to our setting: Haar, CAMSHIFT, shape detector, skin detector. We use all these detectors at once. Our main contributions are: first, utilization of bootstrapping: Haar bootstraps itself, then its results are used to bootstrap the other filters; second, the usage of temporal filtering for more robust detection and to remove outliers; third, we adapted the…

Computer Vision Face Tracking For Use in a Perceptual User Interface

The development of the first core module in this effort: a 4-degree of freedom color object tracker and its application to flesh-tone-based face tracking and the development of a robust nonparametric technique for climbing density gradients to find the mode of a color distribution within a video scene.

Vision based hand gesture recognition for human computer interaction: a survey

An analysis of comparative surveys done in the field of gesture based HCI and an analysis of existing literature related to gesture recognition systems for human computer interaction by categorizing it under different key parameters are provided.

An Application of Classifier Combination Methods in Hand Gesture Recognition

By investigating the bias-variance decompositions of error for all the compared algorithms, the success of AdaBoost and rotation forest can be attributed to the fact that each of them simultaneously reduces the bias and variance terms of a SingleTree's error to a large extent.
