work consists in segmenting and tracking in real-time
the gestures of a user observed by a stereo camera. More
precisely, a 3D model of a person is compared to the set of 3D points
reconstructed by stereo and updated using a technique similar to ICP
(Iterative Closest Point). The designed technique is fast (15Hz /
Pentium IV) and robust to illumination conditions.
