Paper Abstract

This paper presents a novel hand posture recognizer based on separator wavelet networks (SWNs). Aiming at creating a robust and rapid hand posture recognizer, we have contributed by proposing a new training algorithm for the wavelet network classifier based on fast wavelet transform (FWN). So, the contribution resides in reducing the number of WNs modeling training data. To make that, inspiring from the adaboost feature selection method, we thought to create SWNs (n-1 WNs for n classes) instead of modeling each training sample by its wavelet network (WN). By proposing the new training algorithm, the recognition phase will be positively influenced. It will be more rapid thanks to the reduction of the number of comparisons between test images WNs and training WNs. Comparisons with other works, employing universal hand posture datasets are presented and discussed. Obtained results have shown that the new hand posture recognizer is comparable to previously established ones.
