I am trying to develop hand gesture recognition package for my university project.

My goal is to develop a C++ ROS package that will use “Asus xtion pro live“ sensor to recognize hand gestures (not all gestures but for now at least three gestures).

While searching the INTERNET I came across the following packages but I am not sure whether these packages are compatible with Asus xtion pro live.

  1. rtcus_kinect_gestures

  2. GestureRecognizer

  3. hri-ros-pkg

  4. qbo_music_player

So now my questions are :

  1. Can any one suggest me a package which already exist that does hand gesture recognition using the Asus xtion pro live camera so that I could use this package as a reference for my development

  2. If you have experience in the above listed packages could confirm me whether they are compatible with Asus xtion pro live

  3. Since I am new to ROS and hand gesture recognition any advices or guide lines will be appreciated.

Thank you in Advance.
