PhD Dissertation:

"Intelligent Gesture Recognitoin Algorithm for Virtual Keyboard Development"

Abstract:

Virtual keyboard design is an important research & development area in human computer interaction. A keyboard in portable devices is generally inadequate for text entry because of small size and attachment of ordinary keyboard adds to the size. Need for virtual keyboard also exist in human machine interfaces to a wide range of applications in markets as consumer electronics, medical/healthcare, industrial automation, automotive, and public information kiosks.

Current virtual keyboards designs appear in various forms such as finger-joint wearable sensor gloves, thumb code, accelerometer based inputs, laser projected keyboards and gyroscope based sensing. Each virtual keyboard has certain design characteristics. However, performance parameters for the evaluation of keyboards are same such as number of discrete keys, response time and failure rate. Other parameters included can be the ability to remap, key symbol mapping and space requirements. The cost of most of the successful virtual keyboard designs is high due to custom design and expensive technology.

This research provides a new perspective to view the problem of virtual keyboard design by incorporating gesture recognition by using a simple mono vision camera. Human hand and finger movements are considered as gesture movements making keystrokes on any surface. Human hand and finger movements are recorded in video sequence and gesture recognition algorithms estimate the key pressed. This algorithm uses aggregation of gesture information using fuzzy logic and intelligent learning based approach. Feasibility of mono-vision gesture based virtual keyboard is demonstrated. The proposed system shows lesser requirements in hardware due to software centric design and off the shelf components. _______________________________________________________________________
