Abstract

To realize a hands-free controlled system by recognition of mid-air gestures still a bundle of serious problems exists. It is not really clarified how commands have to be interpreted by gestures because it is possible to understand the stroke phases as static as well as dynamic. But depending on which meaning will be used the gesture itself has to be executed in different manners. With video sequences of different interpretations and an online questionnaire this question was examined. The results and also pending problems led to a first solution of a mobile and hands-free controlled transportation system (for picking, lifting and transportation of small boxes) in logistic domains.
