Real Time Hand Marker Tracking as a User Input Device

Pongsatorn Chawalitsittikul and Nikom Suvonvorn, (2010), Real Time Hand Marker Tracking as a User Input Device, In Proceedings of ECTI Conference on Application Research and Development (ECTI-CARD), May 10-12, 2010, Chonburi, Thailand, p.427-431.


Conventional motion capture systems have used widespread especially in the entertainment industry. However, their usage as real time user input devices has been limited by their price. In this paper, we propose an easy-to-use and inexpensive system that facilitates 2-D user-input using video-based markers analysis captured from a consumer grade webcam.
Our system detects and tracks a specific pattern of color marker on cloth glove for hand pose analysis. Some features are observed allowing us to recognize the particular commands. We evaluated the performance of system under real time constraint in real environment with a practical application.
