Maria Khutoretsky Nancy Pollard Quadratic Encoding for 3D Hand Pose Reconstruction

Hand pose reconstruction has many uses in animation and virtual reality. However, because the movements are so fine and occlusion occurs frequently, it is difficult to accurately track hand motion. In cases where the full hand cannot be seen, it is often still possible to identify the fingertips. Our quadratic encoding method provides a way to reconstruct the full hand pose from fingertip position data to generate natural-looking hand motion in real time.
