We present a system for generation and recognition of oscillatory gestures. Inspired by gestures used in two representative human-to-human control areas, we consider a set of oscillatory (circular) motions and refine from them a 24 gestures lexicon. Each gesture is modeled as a dynamic system with added geometric constraints to allow for real time gesture recognition using a small amount of processing time and memory. The gestures are used to control a pan-tilt camera neck. The gesture lexicon is then enhanced to include non-linear in parameter ("come here") gesture representations. An enhancement is suggested which would enable the system to be trained to recognized previously unidentified yet consistent human generated oscillatory motion gestures.
