Real Time Hand Tracking as a User Input Device

Kittasil Silanon and Nikom Suvonvorn, 2010, Real Time Hand Tracking as a User Input Device, In Proceedings of Fifth International Conference on Knowledge, Information and Creativity Support Systems (KICSS2010), November 25-27, 2010, Chiang Mai, Thailand, p. 153-158.

In this paper, we propose a system that facilitates the two dimension user-input as general mouse device for controlling applications. The method is based on hand movement analysis by applying image processing technique. The Haar-like with a cascade of boost classifiers is applied for hand detection, and then tracked with skin color using CamShift. Extracted hand features are computed and used for recognizing commands via a finite state machine. We evaluated the performance of system under real time constraint in real environment with demonstration application.
