Human–machine interaction (HMI) refers to the communication and interaction between a human and a machine via a user interface. Nowadays, natural user interfaces such as gestures have gained increasing attention as they allow humans to control machines through natural and intuitive behaviors. In gesture-based HMI, a sensor such as Microsoft Kinect is used to capture the human postures and motions, which are processed to control a machine. The key task of gesture-based HMI is to recognize the meaningful expressions of human motions using the data provided by Kinect, including RGB (red, green, blue), depth, and skeleton information. In this chapter, we focus on the gesture recognition task for..
