In this paper we present a novel computer vision based hand-tracking technique, which is capable of robustly tracking 6+4DOF of the human hand in real-time (at least 25 frames per second) with the help of 3 (or more) offthe-shelf consumer cameras. ‘6+4DOF’ means that the system can track the global pose (6 continuous parameters for translation and rotation) of 4 different gestures. A key feature of our system is its fully automatic real-time initialization procedure, which, along with a sound… CONTINUE READING
