Recent advances in mobile processors have made complex calculations possible and feasible in Smartphones. Taking advantage of these developments, the authors aim to develop a gesture recognition application that can recognize finger movements effectively in a variety of lighting conditions and perform corresponding actions. This enables them to incorporate a new form of interaction on mobile devices without using extra hardware as it utilizes the front facing camera present in most mobile phones. Here they present a framework that describes their application which will increase the functionality of preexisting devices.
