Segmenting hands of arbitrary color

Xiaojin Zhu, Jie Yang, A. Waibel
Proceedings Fourth IEEE International Conference on Automatic Face and Gesture Recognition (Cat. No. PR00580)  
Our method is capable of segmenting hands of arbitrary color in a complex scene.  ...  Color has been widely used for hand segmentation. However, many approaches rely on predefined skin color models.  ...  The proposed method is capable of segmenting hands of arbitrary color in a complex scene. Another contribution of this paper is the study of upper bound performance for color-based hand segmentation.  ...

2018 2018 Eighth International Conference on Information Science and Technology (ICIST)  
in order to segment hand from a complex background in color images using the depth information.  ...  With the development of depth cameras, color images combined with depth images can provide richer information for hand gesture recognition.  ...  As the human's hand has many degrees of freedom, it is typically an object with arbitrary shapes. Therefore, we use GHT to detect and segment the hand in this paper.  ...

Vision-based Hand Representation and Intuitive Virtual Object Manipulation in Mixed Reality

F. Bach, H. Çakmak, H. Maaß
2012 Biomedical Engineering  
In this paper we introduce a method for representation of the human hand in virtual or mixed environments and interaction with virtual objects.  ...  Applications of the approach are presented and feature extraction methods, the overlay technique and the hardware-and software setup of the system are described.  ...  The result of the hand segmentation is a hand mask binary-image, which is the basis of hand feature extraction.  ...

Vectorial Quasi-flat Zones for Color Image Simplification [chapter]

Erhan Aptoula, Jonathan Weber, Sébastien Lefèvre
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The interest of this vectorial strategy w.r.t marginal quasi-flat zones is illustrated both qualitatively and quantitatively by means of color simplification and segmentation experiments.  ...  Quasi-flat zones enable the computation of homogeneous image regions with respect to one or more arbitrary criteria, such as pixel intensity.  ...  OSR measures directly the degree of over-segmentation. For M P on the other hand, each quasi-flat zone is associated with the reference region with which it shares the highest number of pixels.  ...

Towards Robust Intuitive Vision-Based User Interfaces

2006 2006 IEEE International Conference on Multimedia and Expo  
Hence, a key challenge of new modalities is robustness and stability under general conditions in arbitrary environments.  ...  Furthermore, inexperienced users should be able to use these new capabilities without dedicated knowledge of device settings or algorithms.  ...  On other hand, arbitrary hand positions should not be interpreted as gestures.  ...

Compositing color with texture for multi-variate visualization

Haleh. H. Shenas, Victoria Interrante
2005 Proceedings of the 3rd international conference on Computer graphics and interactive techniques in Australasia and South East Asia - GRAPHITE '05

Derivate-based Component-Trees for Multi-Channel Image Segmentation [article]

Tobias Böttger, Dominik Gutermuth
2018 arXiv   pre-print
We introduce the concept of derivate-based component-trees for images with an arbitrary number of channels.  ...  The approach very similar to MSER but can be applied to images with an arbitrary number of channels.  ...  A handful of example images where MSHR are superior to MSER are presented in Fig. 8 and Fig. 1.  ...

We have only a poor handful of uncompounded color words for referring to the millions of observably different components of the color solid; and other languages select the color labels in ways strikingly  ...  If we treat Whorf’s talk about ‘‘segmentation”’ as excusable rhetoric, there remains only the complaint that classification is arbitrary.  ... 

A COLORED FINGER TIP-BASED TRACKING METHOD FOR CONTINUOUS HAND GESTURE RECOGNITION

DHARANI MAZUMDAR, ANJAN KUMAR TALUKDAR, Kandarpa Kumar Sarma
2014 International Journal of Electronics Signals and Systems  
In this technique only a finger tip is segmented in spite of the full hand part.  ...  Proper hand segmentation from the background and other body parts of the video is the primary requirement for the design of a hand-gesture based application.  ...  There are various types of commonly used hand segmentation techniques as described below- Segmentation based on skin color-In this technique, depending upon the skin color, the rest of the background  ...

Efficiently Tracking Homogeneous Regions in Multichannel Images [article]

Tobias Böttger, Christina Eisenhofer
2017 arXiv   pre-print
We present a method for tracking Maximally Stable Homogeneous Regions (MSHR) in images with an arbitrary number of channels.  ...  The algorithm is evaluated on a collection of different tracking scenes from the literature. Furthermore, we present two different applications: 2D object tracking and the 3D segmentation of organs.  ...  In MSHR tracking, on the other hand, we represent the object as a dense, by-pixel, segmentation.  ...

A combinatorial proof of Sun's "curious" identity [article]

David Callan
2004 arXiv   pre-print
A binomial coefficient identity due to Zhi-Wei Sun is the subject of half a dozen recent papers that prove it by various analytic techniques and establish a generalization.  ...  Here we give a simple proof that uses weight-reversing involutions on suitable configurations involving dominos and colorings. With somewhat more work, the method extends to the generalization also.  ...  The 5-tuple configurations are (i, J, K, A, B) with i ∈ [0, m], J a j-subset of I := [i], K an (m − i)-subset of J ∪ E, A an arbitrary q-colored subset of (J ∪ E)\K and B an arbitrary q-colored subset  ...

Silhouette Area Based Similarity Measure for Template Matching in Constant Time [chapter]

Daniel Mohr, Gabriel Zachmann
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In addition, utilizing the integral image, we can thus compare a silhouette with an input image at an arbitrary position in constant time.  ...  Overall, our contribution constitutes an important piece in the initialization stage of any tracker of (articulated) objects.  ...  To our knowledge, there are much less approaches working directly on the color likelihood map of a segmentation. In [13] the skin-color likelihood is used.  ...

., coplanarity and color coherence, are integrated in the global optimization to improve the segmentation. Experiments demonstrate the potential of the proposed method.  ...  By this means, a freeform object can be "assembled" from an unknown number of SVPs from arbitrary angles.  ...  The points in a patch could represent a surface segment of arbitrary shape, which makes an assembly of a freeform object possible.  ...

2011 International Journal of Computer Applications  
In this techniques based on the color distribution the segmentation of hand from background will take place in a real time.  ...  This technique provides to main benefits: The process of tracking is fast as the segmentation process is performed simultaneously in a specified area surrounding the hand.  ...  COLOR CATERGORIZATION In L*a*b* color model the segmentation of skin color not only depends on segmentation techniques but also relies on the distribution of different color model.  ...
