Gesture recognition is a pivotal technology in the realm of intelligent education, and millimeter-wave (mmWave) signals possess advantages such as high resolution and strong penetration capability. This paper introduces a highly accurate and robust gesture recognition method using mmWave radar. The method involves capturing the raw signals of hand movements with the mmWave radar module and preprocessing the received radar signals, including Fourier transformation, distance compression, Doppler processing, and noise reduction through moving target indication (MTI). The preprocessed signals are then fed into the Convolutional Neural Network-Time Domain Convolutional Network (CNN-TCN) model to extract spatio-temporal features, with recognition performance evaluated through classification. Experimental results demonstrate that this method achieves an accuracy rate of 98.2% in domain-specific recognition and maintains a consistently high recognition rate across different neural networks, showcasing exceptional recognition performance and robustness.
