Gesture Tracking

Gesture tracking is a subset of motion tracking that is concerned with tracking meaningful non-locomotive movements. In other words gestures of the body that are meant to express meaning. Hand use and postural body language for the most part.

This places it firmly under the remit of motion capture technology, and the same technology is used. Typically an array of optic sensors to analyse the body from different angles and compute changes in three dimensional space in real-time.
