Hand Gesture Based Surveillance Robot

Sahoo, Jasmine and Tarai, Chidananda (2013) Hand Gesture Based Surveillance Robot. BTech thesis.



In this work, a hardware and software based integrated system is developed for hand gesture based surveillance robot. The proposed system is a non-invasive technique and software part of the system uses gesture based image processing technique. The hardware part is developed based on AVR microcontroller platform. The captured image of hand is segmented and its contour is determined. The convexity defects are computed to detect the number of fingers used by the subject. The number of fingers directs the path to robot that is to be followed. The camera placed on the robot capture the images of its surrounding, wherever it travels and send it back to the PC for monitoring. In this way, it can be used as a surveillance system. Experimental results show that the overall accuracy obtained above 90% for gesture recognition by which robot will be directed to follow the path. The system can be directly applied to defence grounds for detection of enemy, for spying purpose where the human reach is avoided or not recommended. This unit can be used for overcoming physical handicaps by helping in development of gesture-based wheel chairs, for control of home devices and appliances for persons with physical handicaps and/or elderly users with impaired mobility.
