Pengenalan Alfabet Bahasa Isyarat Amerika Menggunakan Edge Oriented Histogram dan Image Matching

Ivan Fareza, Rusdie Busdin, Muhammad Ezar Al Rivan, Hafiz Irsyad


Sign Language is a way to communicate to people with disabilities. American Sign Language (ASL) is one among other sign languages. Sign language image would be extracted using Edge Oriented Histogram (EOH). In Content Based Image Retrieval, feature from query image will be compared to database image to find out the best matching method so three matching methods will be compared. The matching methods are earth mover distance, hausdorff distance and sum of absolute difference. The smallest distance show the strong similarity between query image and database image. Sum of absolute difference is outperformed other in case the most of relevant image can retrieved.
