Gesture is a natural form of human communication, and it is of great significance in human-computer interaction. In the dynamic gesture recognition method based on deep learning, the key is to obtain comprehensive gesture feature information. Aiming at the problem of inadequate extraction of spatiotemporal features or loss of feature information in current dynamic gesture recognition, a new gesture recognition architecture is proposed, which combines feature fusion network with variant

The architecture extracts spatiotemporal feature information from local, global and deep aspects, and combines feature fusion to alleviate the loss of feature information. Firstly, local spatiotemporal feature information is extracted from video sequence by 3D residual network based on channel feature fusion. Then the authors use the variant ConvLSTM to learn the global spatiotemporal information of dynamic gesture, and introduce the attention mechanism to change the gate structure of ConvLSTM. Finally, a multi-feature fusion depthwise separable network is used to learn higher-level features including depth feature information. The proposed approach obtains very competitive performance on the Jester dataset with the classification accuracies of 95.59%, achieving state-of-the-art performance with 99.65% accuracy on the SKIG (Sheffifield Kinect Gesture) dataset.
