Abstract: Biometric properties of human gestures will be presented and discussed in the course of two 90-minute lectures. First a short introduction to the biometric of gestures will be made in the context of other biometrics methods and systems by drawing parallels and outlining the specific properties of gesture biometrics. Then we will concentrate on methods for collecting gesture data by various physical devices under different environmental conditions. The biometry of surface-based and spatial gestures will be discussed providing a range of examples spanning from handwritten character and signature biometry to sign language gesture and full-body motion analysis. Possibilities for biometric identification using handwriting and signature gestures with no physical surface binding will be discussed and illustrations from our current work on this subject will be provided. Specificities of the gesture biometry in respect to Western and Asian languages based on their important differences will be explained in detail. The lectures will conclude with the presentation of some advanced methods for marker and surface code based object tracking as well as camera tracking in digitally enhanced environments.
