The Gesture Watch: A Wireless Contact-free Gesture based Wrist Interface

Jungsoo Kim, Jiasheng He, Kent Lyons, Thad Starner
2007 2007 11th IEEE International Symposium on Wearable Computers  
Overall, we attained a recognition accuracy of 95.5% and found that the Gesture Watch worked well in both indoor and outdoor environments and while mobile.  ...  The Gesture Watch utilizes an array of infrared proximity sensors to sense hand gestures made over the device and interprets the gestures using hidden Markov models.  ...  For recognition we are using the Gesture and Activity Recognition Toolkit (GART) [3] . GART is a toolkit built to facilitate the development and exploration of gesture recognition applications.  ...

MAGIC 2.0: A web tool for false positive prediction and prevention for gesture recognition systems

Daniel Kohlsdorf, Thad Starner, Daniel Ashbrook
2011 Face and Gesture 2011  
Using iSAX on the EGL, we also develop a "garbage" class and show that including this class in recognition reduces errors.  ...  False positives are a common problem for interfaces that rely on gesture recognition.  ...  Acknowledgements Thanks to ETRI, Google, and NSF for their support of this project, and David Minnen for the use of his SAX creation picture.  ...

Designing Tabletop and Surface Applications Using Interactive Prototypes [article]

Tulio De Souza Alcantara, University Of Calgary, University Of Calgary, Frank Maurer
In order to help designers of touch-based applications this research presents an approach that allows designers to create their own application-specific hand, finger or tag-based gestures and evaluate  ...  Innovative possibilities of interacting with touch-based devices come with the cost of having interaction designers to determine if users consider the interactions natural and easy to use.  ...  In a similar fashion as the approach in this thesis, there are tools that provide users with user-friendly ways for creating gestures. A gesture recognition toolkit, GART, is described by Lyons et al.  ...
