We propose an adaptive and robust superpixel based hand gesture tracking system, in which hand gestures drawn in free air are recognized from their motion trajectories. First we employed the motion detection of superpixels and unsupervised image segmentation to detect the moving target hand using the first few frames of the input video sequence. Then the hand appearance model is constructed from its surrounding superpixels. By incorporating the failure recovery and template matching in the tracking process, the target hand is tracked by an adaptive superpixel based tracking algorithm, where the problem of hand deformation, view-dependent appearance invariance, fast motion, and background confusion can be well handled to extract the correct hand motion trajectory. Finally, the hand gesture is recognized by the extracted motion trajectory with a trained SVM classifier. Experimental results show that our proposed system can achieve better performance compared to the existing state-of-the-art methods with the recognition accuracy 99.17% for easy set and 98.57 for hard set. © 2014 Hong-Min Zhu and Chi-Man Pun.
