— This paper presents a new method of detection and identification, called PYTHON programming environment, which can realize the gesture track recognition based on the depth image information get by the Kinect sensor. First, Kinect sensor is used to obtain depth image information. Then it extracts splith and with the official Microsoft SDK. Finally, this paper presents how to calculate the palm center’s coordinates based on the moment of hand contour feature. Experiments show that the advantages of using the hand split and gesture recognition of the Kinect’s depth image can be very effective to achieve interactive features.
