Abstract
      We present a system for generation and recognition of oscillatory gestures. Inspired by gestures used in two representative human-to-human control areas, we consider a set of oscillatory (circular) motions and refine from them a 24 gesture lexicon. Each gesture is modeled as a dynamic system with added geometric constraints to allow for real time gesture recognition using a small amount of processing time and memory. The gestures are used to control a pan-tilt camera neck. The gesture lexicon is then enhanced to include nonlinear in parameter (“come here”) gesture representations. An enhancement is suggested which would enable the system to be trained to recognized previously unidentified yet consistent human generated oscillatory motion gestures.
