In “3D Hand Gesture Recognition Based on Sensor Fusion of Commodity Hardware,” Manuel Caputo, Klaus Denker, Benjamin Dums, Georg Umlauf at HTWG Konstanz in Germany look at the impact of gesture recognition has had on the design and use of video game consoles and tablet devices.
They describe a dynamic 3D hand and arm gesture recognition system using commodity hardware in which input data is captured with low cost depth sensors (e.g. Microsoft Kinect) and HD color sensors (e.g. Logitech C910).
It combines dynamic hand and arm gesture recognition based on the depth sensor with static hand gesture recognition based on the HD color
