The videos presented on this page show a gesture recognition methodology that aims to allow the user to navigate in a virtual environments and manipulate objects in this environment without using any particular device. It is used only Kinect as a sensor device.

Hand Gesture Recognition

An example of the use of LNCC HGR Database to recognize static hand gestures using Kinect device. The recognition occurs in real time. A demonstration video can be seen below.

Virtual Application

An application example of hand gesture recognition for manipulating virtual objects in synthetic world. Recognition occurs in real time and this demo application was developed to navigate within a virtual world and for manipulating virtual objects in CAVE environments. For total immersion of the user within the virtual world we used the CAVE environment that belongs to National Laboratory for Scientific Computing (LNCC). But it can be used for other purposes as well. A demonstration video can be seen below.
