About this book
As computers become prevalent in all aspects of daily life, the need for natural and effective Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) becomes increasingly important. Computer vision and pattern recognition continue to play a dominant role in the HCI realm. However, computer vision methods often fail to become pervasive in the field due to the lack of real-time, robust algorithms, as well as novel and convincing applications.
This state-of-the-art contributed volume presents a series of peer-reviewed survey articles written by international leading experts in computer vision, pattern recognition and Human-Computer Interaction. It is the first published text capturing the latest research in this rapidly advancing field with exclusive focus on real-time algorithms and practical applications in numerous industries, including computer games and medical and automotive systems. It is also an excellent starting point for further research in these areas.
Contributions to this volume address specific topics such as:
Real-Time Algorithms: from Signal Processing to Computer Vision
Recognition of Isolated Fingerspelling Gestures Using Depth Edges
Appearance-Based Real-Time Understanding of Gestures Using Projected Euler Angles
Flocks of Features for Tracking Articulated Objects
