Paper Abstract

In this study, we cast hand posture recognition as a sparse representation problem, and propose a novel approach called joint feature sparse representation classifier for efficient and accurate sparse representation based on multiple features. By integrating different features for sparse representation, including gray-level, texture, and shape feature, the proposed method can fuse benefits of each feature and hence is robust to partial occlusion and varying illumination. Additionally, a new database optimization method is introduced to improve computational speed. Experimental results, based on public and self-build databases, show that our method performs well compared to the state-of-the-art methods for hand posture recognition.
