we study dynamic hand gestures, which are defined as a sequence of hand postures. We emphasise the generality of our dynamic gesture model, which is capable of recognising essentially any dynamic hand gesture confined in a sequence of postures. Hand postures are static poses and are defined by an array of posture attributes. We use a generic definition hand postures capable of covering the space of hand postures at different levels of granularity and abstraction; and we timely monitor the posture variation as it unfolds within the dynamic gesture.
We also study the role of context in gesture interpretation without making assumptions about a specific application. We view the hand-tracking and gesture-recognition subsystems as integral parts of a larger distributed and multi-user multi-service application, where gesture interpretation plays the role of resolving ambiguity of the recognized gesture. We identify the relevant aspects to hand gesture interpretation and we propose agent-based system architecture for gesture interpretation.
We finally propose a framework for gesture-enabled system design, where context is placed in a middleware layer that interfaces with all sub modules in the system and plays a dialectic role and keeping the overall system stable.",
