Abstract

A global approach to hand gesture vocabulary design is proposed which includes human as well as technical design factors. The method of selecting gestures for preconceived command vocabularies has not been addressed in a systematic manner. Present methods are ad hoc. In an analytical approach technological factors of gesture recognition accuracy are easily obtained and well studied. Conversely, it is difficult to obtain measures of human centered desires (intuitiveness, comfort), These factors, being subjective, are costly and time consuming to obtain, and hence we have developed automated methods for acquisition of these data through specially designed applications. Results of the intuitiveness experiments showed when commands are presented as stimuli the gestural responses vary widely over a population of subjects. This result refutes the hypothesis that there exist universal common gestures to express user intentions or commands.
