Hand gesture tracking and recognition system for control of consumer electronics

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Dynamic hand gesture tracking and recognition system can simplify

    the way humans interact with computers and many other non-critical consumer

    electronic equipments. This system is based on the well-known “Wave

    Controller” technology developed at the University of Wollongong [1--3] and

    certainly a step forward in video gaming and consumer electronics control

    interfaces. Many computer interfaces used today such as keyboard, mouse,

    joystick or gaming wheels have constrained the artistic ability of many users, as

    they are required to respond to the computer through pressing buttons or

    moving other apparatus. Most of the drawbacks of the modern interfaces can be

    tackled by using a reliable hand gesture tracking and recognition system based

    on both Lucas-Kanade and Moment Invariants approaches. The realtime

    functional ability of this system will enhance the user experience as users are no

    longer have any physical connection to the equipment being controlled.
