Deep Learning for Hand Gesture Recognition on Skeletal Data

In this paper, we introduce a new 3D hand gesture recognition approach based on a deep learning model. We introduce a new Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) where sequences of hand-skeletal joints’ positions are processed by parallel convolutions; we then investigate the performance of this model on hand gesture sequence classification tasks. Our model only uses hand-skeletal data and no depth image. Experimental results show that our approach achieves a state-of-the-art performance on a challenging dataset (DHG dataset from the SHREC 2017 3D Shape Retrieval Contest), when compared to other published approaches. Our model achieves a 91.28% classification accuracy for the 14 gesture classes case and an 84.35% classification accuracy for the 28 gesture classes case.
