Image Processor Comprising Gesture Recognition System with Static Hand Pose Recognition Based on First and Second Sets of Features


An image processing system comprises an image processor having image processing circuitry and an associated memory. The image processor is configured to implement a gesture recognition system comprising a static pose recognition module. The static pose recognition module is configured to identify a hand region of interest in at least one image, to obtain a vocabulary of hand poses, to estimate a plurality of hand features based on the hand region of interest, the plurality of hand features comprising a first set of features estimated from the hand region of interest and a second set of features comprising at least one feature estimated using a transform on a contour of the hand region of interest, and to recognize a static pose of the hand region of interest based on the first set of features and the second set of features, wherein respective numbers of features in the first set of features and the second set of features are based at least in part on a size of the vocabulary of hand poses.
