Optimizing Gesture Recognition: A comparison of hidden Markov models and linear gesture recognition
Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Faculty of Information Technology, Mathematics and Electrical Engineering, Department of Computer and Information Science.
2013 (English)MasteroppgaveStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

This thesis aims to compare a simple linear recognition algorithm to that of the well proven and reliable Hidden Markov Model. It implements a gesture recognition system able to recognize gestures using both algorithms and com- pares their performance before and after applying optimization techniques to improve their speed and accuracy. The system used to retrieve the results is developed using Java and is aimed towards wearable devices as an alternate interaction technique for de- vices with limited processing power. The final conclusion from this thesis is that even a very simple recognition algorithm can perform nearly as well as more complex ones if the data-sets are presented well to the system.
