Abstract
We present a new method for extracting and clas­
sifying motion patterns to recognize hand gestures.
First, motion segmentation of the image sequence is
generated based on a multiscale transform and at­
tributed graph matching of regions across frames. This
produces region correspondences and their affine trans­
formations. Second, color information of motion re­
gions is used to determine skin regions. Third, hu­
man head and palm regions are identified based on
the shape and size of skin areas in motion. Finally,
affine transformations defining a region's motion be­
tween successive frames are concatenated to construct
