METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR HUMAN-TO-COMPUTER GESTURE BASED SIMULTANEOUS INTERACTIONS USING SINGULAR POINTS OF INTEREST ON A HAND

Thu, 06 Apr 2017 08:00:00 EDT

Described herein is a method for enabling human-to-computer three-dimensional hand gesture-based natural interactions from depth images provided by a range finding imaging system. The method enables recognition of simultaneous gestures from detection, tracking and analysis of singular points of interests on a single hand of a user and provides contextual feedback information to the user. The singular points of interest of the hand: include hand tip(s), fingertip(s), palm centre and centre of mass of the hand, and are used for defining at least one representation of a pointer. The point(s) of interest is/are tracked over time and are analysed to enable the determination of sequential and/or simultaneous “pointing” and “activation” gestures performed by a single hand.



APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR ADAPTIVE GESTURE RECOGNITION IN PORTABLE TERMINAL

Thu, 06 Apr 2017 08:00:00 EDT

An apparatus and method for gesture recognition in a portable terminal. An operation of the portable terminal includes determining a user situation by using at least one situation information, determining a user's gesture by using at least one sensor measurement value, and performing a function corresponding to the user situation and the gesture.
