This paper describes the pointing gesture recognition component of the BlueC p ipeline. It is an intermediate result of my research in the field of Human Mot ion Recognition (HuMoR). This paper should act as an easy manual for users of the GR library. To be abl e to understand the many tuning options and the side effects that may appear d uring runtime, it describes also the algorithm and therefore the key ideas beh ind the pointing gesture recognition.
