Design of Intangible Interface for Human Computer Interaction- Hand Gestures Controlled Mouse

Pradhan, Alisha (2015) Design of Intangible Interface for Human Computer Interaction- Hand Gestures Controlled Mouse. BTech thesis.



The current generation is the touch generation. In this generation, everything works with the touch of a finger, be it our cell phones, computers or any day to day appliance. But the so called 'touch generation' has reached its ultimate state and is soon likely to decline. The generation of 'intangible interfaces' is just at its dawn and is soon going to take over the touch generation. The problem statement for this project is to improve the human computer interaction with the use of intangible interface. The aim is to control all operations of a mouse without the actual use of mouse.This would allow the user to navigate his laptop while sitting far away from it. This is achieved by recognition of hand gestures. A computer vision application is made which captures images of the hand gestures from the laptop's web camera, processes it, and performs the required output.Several algorithms of computer vision including image segmentation, feature extraction have been used. The basic functions of a mouse i.e. left click, right click and double click using hand gestures are performed in this project. The main aim is to improve the interaction of human with the computer i.e. to make it more natural but keeping the cost factor in mind. The purpose is to develop an application that must be easy as well as economic to use.
