I am a beginner in terms of gesture recognition, Openni and OpenCV and I would appreciate any help I could get. I want to either find or design a system that recognizes dynamic arm/body gestures (a set of approximately 8 gestures) and maps them to a set of actions. I know I need a way of tracking the body, arms and hand joints and extract relevant features. Then, I am planning to use a neural net to recognize the gestures.

I found the Ros openni-tracker package that tracks body joints, and I think I could build my program based on that. However, my experience with feature extraction is practically null. I don't know which features would be the most relevant and what are efficient ways of storing them. I suppose it should be a set of vectors of size x, but since the gestures are dynamic, it makes it a lot harder to conceive. Would anyone know of resources or tutorials that would help on that matter?

I also tried to install the MIT hand tracker package, but since it was designed for Diamondback, I couldn't manage to get it to work on Groovy (I got stuck at installing the required pcl package). If anyone has heard of a way of adapting it or if there exists a similar package that would work on Groovy, I would like to know!

if you really want to do what you are doing, do with the same version of ROS by using the same version of Linux. Otherwise, everything on website or in books, will be proven to be nothing but scrap.

I have the same problem. I tried to install the kinect demos software setup for ros electric, but in the direction there is nothing. I don't know how to install this software. Thanks
