Recognition of gestures in the context of speech
2002 (English)In: 16th International Conference on Pattern Recognition, 2002. Proceedings., 2002Conference paper (Refereed)
The scope of this paper is the interpretation of a user's intention via a video camera and a speech recognizer In comparison to previous work which only takes into account gesture recognition, we demonstrate that by including speech, system comprehension increases. For the gesture recognition, the user must wear a colored glove, then we extract the velocity of the center of gravity of the hand. A Hidden Markov Model (HMM) is learned for each gesture that we want to recognize. In a dynamic action, to know if a gesture has been performed or not, we implement a threshold model below which the gesture is not detected. The off line tests for gesture recognition have a success rate exceeding 85% for each gesture. The combination of speech and gestures is realized using Bayesian theory.
