FGEST: Finger Tracking and Gesture Recognition in Smartphones
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.
