I am in need to build a mouse gesture recognition system which will compare given recognition to the the gestures in training data and will say where a given gesture best fits.
I am planning to use correlation to accomplish this. I would run Correlation on given input against all the gestures in training data and will select the action associated to the gesture with best correlation co-efficient (and cross a threshold).
I am not sure how robust correlation is for this purpose, so need your insight into this. Also please suggest if you think I should better be using something other than Correlation...
PS: I am more of a programmer than a mathematician :(
