We present a novel method for monocular hand gesture recognition in ego-vision scenarios that deals with static and dynamic gestures and can achieve high accuracy results using a few positive samples. Specifically, we use and extend the dense trajectories approach that has been successfully introduced for action recognition. Dense features are extracted around regions selected by a new hand segmentation technique that integrates superpixel classification, temporal and spatial coherence. We extensively testour gesture recognition and segmentation algorithms on public datasets and propose a new dataset shot with a wearable camera. In addition, we demonstrate that our solution can work in near real-time on a wearable device.

Abstract

We present a novel method for monocular hand gesture recognition in ego-vision scenarios that deals with static and dynamic gestures and can achieve high accuracy results using a few positive samples. Specifically, we use and extend the dense trajectories approach that has been successfully introduced for action recognition. Dense features are extracted around regions selected by a new hand segmentation technique that integrates superpixel classification, temporal and spatial coherence. We extensively testour gesture recognition and segmentation algorithms on public datasets and propose a new dataset shot with a wearable camera. In addition, we demonstrate that our solution can work in near real-time on a wearable device.
