Naturalness and effectiveness of gesture-based communication strongly depend on the success of gesture recognition. However, confusion in classification increases when considering gestures with similar evolutions. Given that neither typical motion-based features, nor hidden Markov models are capable to distinguish accurately among them, it is common to consider only gestures that require different forms of execution. In this paper, we present empirical evidence showing that, in addition to… CONTINUE READING
