Today human-machine interaction is moving away from keypad and is becoming pervasive and much more compatible with the physical world. Gestures have played a vital role in diminishing this problem. The main purpose of using gestures is that it provides a more natural way of controlling and provides a rich and intuitive form of interaction with the robotic system. There are some systems that have been developed in the same field using various techniques. This paper deals with design and implementation of an accelerometer based hand gesture controlled robot controlled wirelessly using a small low cost, 3-axis accelerometer and an android application. A novel algorithm for gesture identification has been developed to replace the approach of conventional controlling mechanism of robots via buttons etc, by an innovative hand gesture based controlling. Using a microcontroller system the program has been written & executed.[Full Text Article]
