    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (577 KB)

    Fuzzy logic provides a natural and precise way for humans to define and interact with systems. Optimizing a fuzzy inference system, however, presents some special challenges for the developer because of the imprecision that is inherent to fuzzy sets. This paper expands upon an earlier development of a fuzzy framework, adding components for dynamic self-optimization. What makes this approach unique... View full abstract»

    We propose a method for tracking a hand in real-time, using depth information from a single Kinect sensor. The fingers are segmented using medial axes on an image generated by the depth discontinuities. The palm position and orientation is estimated from the position of the wrist as well as the distance to the closest contour points. The detected medial axes are projected in the palm plane for lab... View full abstract»
