Hand motion driven human-computer interface based on novel time-invariant gesture description is proposed. Description is represented as a sequence of overthreshold motion distribution histograms. Such description utilizes information about gesture spatial configuration and motion dynamics. K-nearest-neighbour classifier was trained on six gesture types. Application for remote slideshow control was developed based on the proposed algorithm.
