Optical Gesture Recognition System

In this real-time human gesture recognition system, video images of a person are sent to a recognition module. The system does not require any sensors or cables to be attached to the subject's body. The key technology here is optical information processing. In the recognition module, video images taken by a CCD camera are presented to a holographic device that generates a vector representation of the gesture. The vector is then analyzed electronically to determine the gesture in real time.
