Until 1993, Frank Hofmann studied computer science at the Technical
University of Berlin.
Since 1993, he is a member of the research group for Real-Time Systems
and Robotics at the computer science department of TU Berlin.
Since 1994, he is a PhD student on the interdisciplinary research project
"Gesture Recognition with SensorGloves". His work concentrates on modelling,
analyzing and automatically recognizing human gestures.
"Gesture Recognition with SensorGloves"
Sensor based recognition of human gestures.
Further development and application of the TUB SensorGlove, a highly
precise dataglove for the measurement of human grasping patterns.
Methods for gesture data classification.
Application of theories from robotics to kinematically model
human gestures; robot control by gesture commands.
Application of the Hamburg Notation System for Sign Languages
in gesture recognition and -modelling tasks.
Using gestures to control modern music synthesis systems. (Hyperlinks
