This paper proposes a new hand posture identification system which applies genetic algorithm to develop an efficient 3D hand-model-fitting method. The 3D hand-model-fitting method consists of (1) finding the closed-form inverse kinematics solution, (2) defining the alignment measure function for the wrist-fitting process, and (3) applying genetic algorithm to develop the dynamic hand posture identification process. In contrast to the conventional computationally intensive hand-model-fitting methods, we develop an off-line training process to find the closed-form inverse kinematics solution functions, and a fast model-based hand posture identification process. In the experiments, we will illustrate that our hand posture identification system is very effective.
