Abstract. This paper presents a vision-based interface for controlling
a computer mouse via 2D and 3D hand gestures. The proposed interface
builds upon our previous work that permits the detection and tracking of
multiple hands that can move freely in the field of view of a potentially
moving camera system. Dependable hand tracking, combined with finger-
tip detection, facilitates the definition of simple and, therefore, robustly
interpretable vocabularies of hand gestures that are subsequently used to
enable a human operator convey control information to a computer sys-
tem. Two such vocabularies are defined, implemented and validated. The
first one depends only on 2D hand tracking results while the second also
makes use of 3D information. As confirmed by several experiments, the
