Abstract

The main focus of this thesis is to give a detailed description of techniques and methodology implemented for feature extraction and three-dimensional reconstruction. The algorithms were developed as part of a project whose main object is the graphical three-dimensional modeling of the gestures of a human hand. The project itself comprises several steps, namely, camera calibration, hand feature extraction, three-dimensional reconstruction, and computer graphics modeling of the hand. Experimental results of the feature extraction and three-dimensional reconstruction will also be presented.
