The computer-mediated manipulation of graphic objects and remote
physical objects (tele-operation) depends upon a reliable system for
the determination of hand pose (position and orientation). This paper
details the design, implementation and evaluation of a novel hand
pose tracking system based upon stereo computer vision techinques.
The pose of the hand is not computed directly. Instead, it is recovered
from the hand pose of a specially-marked cylindrical wrist bracelet worn by
the user. The tracking system has been implemented on a network of
two T800 transputer-framestores. It has a mean pose update rate of
9.2Hz and a mean lag time of 217ms.
