Supervised training based hand gesture recognition system


We have developed a hand gesture recognition system, based on the shape analysis of static gestures, for Human Computer Interaction purposes. Our appearance-based recognition uses modified Fourier descriptors for the classification of hand shapes. As always found in literature, such recognition systems consist of two phases: training and recognition. In our new practical approach, following the chosen appearance-based model, training and recognition is done in an interactive supervised way: the adaptation for untrained gestures is also solved by hand signals. Our experimental results with three different users are reported. In this paper, besides describing the recognition itself, we demonstrate our interactive training method in a practical application. 

The Journal uses Editorial Manager System for a qualitative and prompt review process. Review processing is performed by the editorial board members of Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences & Emerging Drugs or relevant experts from other universities or institutes. Minimum two independent reviewer’s approval followed by editor approval is required for the acceptance of any citable manuscript. Authors may submit manuscripts online / through mail id: and track their progress through the online tracking system, hopefully to publication. Submit manuscripts as an e-mail attachment to the Editorial Office at A Manuscript number will be emailed to the corresponding author within 72 hours.
