Abstract

Gesture analysis systems have been attracting a good deal of attention because of the improvements they have made to the interaction between humans, humans and machines, and humans and their environment. In this interaction, natural gesticulation can be regarded as a part of the linguistic system underlying the communication, and the whole information system that seeks to make use of this kind of interaction for making decisions, should be able to “interpret” it. This can be carried out through strategies for gesture phase segmentation. The establishment of an efficient data representation for gestures is a critical issue when undertaking this task. The chosen representation, as well as the way it is combined with analytical techniques, may or may not support the solution that is found. In this study, different forms of representation for gestures are applied to a Multilayer Perceptron to create a suitable environment for detecting the more discriminative representations. The results obtained in this study showed that spatial and temporal characteristics must be combined to build discriminatory gesture representation, for the context of gesture phase segmentation.
