Robust Pinch gesture detection(index-thumb) using RGB-D sensor

asked 2015-03-22 08:35:57 -0600

Hi there! I want to implement a system which will detect hand and fingers and will be able to understand if the user did the pinch gesture using his index and thumb.Just like when you play a chess game and you want to move the piece. The camera(Realsense rgb-d) will be mounted on top of an oculus.

Any idea on what algorithms should I use? Best techniques that would help?

You should check the work of Andrew Wilson:

He has published some papers in this context and I implemented this approach for a 3d camera which is straight forward (just use the 3d data to get the mask he gets from the color segmentation).

Great thanks a lot! Any open source implementations?

Only source code from my master's thesis. What are you building?

I want to build an AR Chess,so I want the camera to track the pinch gesture and let the augmented piece to move.Can you share your thesis pdf-code?
