Over the recent years there has been growing interest to propose a robust and efficient hand gesture recognition (HGR) system, using real-time depth sensors like Microsoft Kinect. The performance of such HGR systems have been affected by the low resolution, noise and quantization error in the depth stream. In this paper, we propose a method to pre-process Kinect depth stream in order to overcome some of these limitations. The design approach utilizes the hand tracker from OpenNI SDK to perform… CONTINUE READING
