Classification Method of Hand Gestures Based on Support Vector Machine
This paper presents the EMG signal classification based on PCA and SVM method. The data is acquired from the 5 subjects and each subject perform 7 hand gestures includes the tripod, power, precision closed, finger point, mouse, hand open, and hand close. Each gesture is repeated 10 times (5 data as training data and the 5 remaining data as testing data). Each of training and testing data are processed using 16 features extraction in time–domain and reduced using principal component analysis (PCA) to obtain new set of features. Features classification using support vector machine classify new set of features from each subject result 85% - 89% percentage of training classification. Training data classification is tested using testing data of EMG signals and giving accuracy reach 80% - 86%.
