Abstract

This paper proposes a method for sign language recognition that bypasses the need for tracking by classifying the motion directly. The method uses the natural extension of haar like features into the temporal domain, computed efficiently using an integral volume. These volumetric features are assembled into spatio-temporal classifiers using boosting. Results are presented for a fast feature extraction method and 2 different types of boosting. These configurations have been tested on a data set consisting of both seen and unseen signers performing 5 signs producing competitive results. 1 Introduc
