In this paper we present a novel method for hand gesture recognition based on Gabor filters and support vector machine (SVM). Gabor filters are first convolved with images to acquire desirable hand gesture features. The principal components analysis (PCA) method is then used to reduce the dimensionality of the feature space. With the reduced Gabor features, SVM is trained and exploited to perform the hand gesture recognition tasks. To confirm the robustness of the proposed method, a dataset… CONTINUE READING
