hand gesture recognition

Hello guys

I am doing a hand gesture recognition program using opencv so I was wondering if anyone can give me tips on how to go about it, so far i can get the stream from camera and i wanna know the few steps i need in general. thanks


I’d use openCV for that one. There already is an addon ofxOpenCV that should help you getting started.

From there I’s probably try to go with optical flow to detect movements. Maybe even some sort of blob detection or haar finder to detect a shape. depends on what you’re trying to do…
