This database is composed by a set of high resolution color sequences acquired by the Senz3D sensor. It was created to validate a hand-gesture recognition system for Human-Computer Interaction. Since a mouse-like pointing device was proposed as an example of application in this work, the hand gestures in this database were designed according to mouse functionalities: cursor, left click, right click, mouse activation, and mouse deactivation. All the video sequences were recorded in a realistic scene, which means a non-uniform background, and other moving objects.

This database is composed of two sets of gestures, Set 1 and Set 2, which contain both static and dynamic hand gestures.
