Type of Software:

Descriptive Keywords:
Gesture recognition framework, mouse-based input, pen-based input, recognition algorithm evaluation, human machine interface

Potential Use and Applications:
While there exists a variety of gesture recognition frameworks, none of them addresses the issues of supporting both application developers as well as the designers of new recognition algorithms. iGesture supports the application developer who would like to add some gesture recognition functionality to their application as well as the designer of new gesture recognition algorithms. The iGesture framework can easily be configured to use any of the existing recognition algorithms (e.g. Rubine, SiGeR) and customised gesture sets can be defined. Furthermore, the Test Bench provides tools to test new gesture recognition algorithms and to evaluate their performance.

General Description:
iGesture is a Java-based gesture recognition framework focusing on extensibility and cross-application reusability by providing an integrated solution that includes tools for gesture recognition as well as the creation and management of gesture sets for the evaluation and optimisation of new or existing gesture recognition algorithms. In addition to traditional screen and mouse-based interaction, iGesture provides digital pen and paper input functionality.
