The rapid development of Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) technology has led to high demand on precise finger movement-based controllers for gaming and other applications. Immersive holoscopic 3D imaging technology has been explored a lot recently and some small size sensors are now available. It can produce a 2D image with 3D information in it from lens array inside. This challenge will provide the opportunity to the research community to design finger micro-gesture recognition system using their own 3D image processing, feature extraction and classification methods, on a new built holoscopic 3D micro-finger gesture dataset.
The dataset contains image sequences of different conventional finger micro-gestures (i.e. Button, Dial and Slider) from 40 subjects. The two sub-challenges will be
(1) Holoscopic 3D image based micro-gesture recognition.
(2) Holoscopic 3D video based micro-gesture recognition.
