Traffic Control Using Hand Gesture Recognition
In a smart environment, people usually hope to use the most natural and convenient ways to express their
intentions and interact with the environment. Button pressing, often used in the remote control panel, provides the most
traditional means of giving commands to devices and appliances. Such kind of operation, however, is not natural and
sometimes even inconvenient. In this regard, gesture-based interaction offers an alternative way in a smart environment.
Hand gesture recognition is one of the method of the human computer interface.New input methods, closer to human nature
are searched for replacing traditional ones.
This paper aims in implementing real time gesture recognition. The primary goal is to create a system that can
identify human generated gestures and use this information for device control.Once the gesture is identified corresponding
control action assigned to the gesture is actuated. This paper presents a hand gesture recognition system built around an
accelerometer sensor. The system is made by a sensing and transmitting part and a computer
