ASL Gesture Recognition – 8 Gestures

Trained 8 classes namely 'Yes', 'No', 'Hello', 'Thank You', 'Sorry', 'What is your name', 'Are you deaf', 'Nice to meet you'. Extracted 6 (X, Y) coordinates from shoulders, elbows and wrists positions from openPose to build feature vectors from a single frame. In a 2-second training video, we extracted 12 frames and generated the feature matrix. We used a total of 400 training videos and with this feature matrix, we trained an LSTM model to build a classifier.
