In human-computer interaction applications, gesture recognition
has the potential to provide a natural way of communication be-
tween humans and machines. The technology is becoming ma-
ture enough to be widely available to the public and real-world
computer vision applications start to emerge. A typical example
of this trend is the gaming industry and the launch of Microsoft's
new camera: the Kinect. Other domains, where gesture recognition
is needed, include but are not limited to: sign language recogni-
tion, virtual reality environments and smart homes. A key chal-
lenge for such real-world applications is that they need to oper-
ate in complex scenes with cluttered backgrounds, various moving
objects and possibly challenging illumination conditions. In this
paper we propose a method that accommodates such challenging
conditions by detecting the hands using scene depth information
