Towards the creation of a Gesture Library

Journal Title: EAI Endorsed Transactions on Creative Technologies - Year 2015, Vol 2, Issue 3


The evolution of technology has risen new possibilities in the so called Natural User Interfaces research area. Among distinct initiatives, several researchers are working with the existing sensors towards improving the support to gesture languages. This article tackles the recognition of gestures, using the Kinect sensor, in order to create a gesture library and support the gesture recognition processes afterwards.
