Hand gestures for remote control

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Gestures can be used as an alternative to traditional human computer interaction devices such as the keyboard and mouse. Gesture interaction can be flexible, natural, and intuitive. They can increase user immersion in virtual environments and reduce the need for learning systems specific interaction methods. In the talk, the general structure and main building blocks of gesture recognition systems will be discussed. The concepts discussed will be demonstrated as part of two applications employing hand gestures for remote control: control of the TV menu and control of a robotic manipulator.
