Abstract(in English) This paper presents a gesture recognition method extending Temporal Templates so that they can contain not only vertical and horizontal motion but also depth information obtained from a binocular stereopsis. The proposed method can discriminate gestures with depth motion. At first, a disparity image generated from stereo images is divided into several disparity stages and in each disparity stage, a grayscale feature image (Temporal Template) is created by assigning the intensity according to the frame number to the area where motion has been detected. Next, a gesture model is generated from learning a feature image in each disparity stage by SVM. A gesture is recognized by checking feature images generated from input stereo images against each gesture model in each disparity stage. Experimental results have shown the effectiveness of the proposed method for recognizing gestures with depth motion.
