Gesture recognition is a field of research that consists in recognizing patterns of movement performed by humans using their body parts with or without the help of a comprehensive device (a mouse, a laser, etc.). This particular area as attracted a number of researchers over the years that applied such algorithms in a broad range of disciplines. In particular, it was exploited on early research initiatives with pervasive environments to enable simple communication with automation systems. Now-a-days, those environments are used for more than automation.
