In this paper we have implemented a wireless vision based mobile robot control through hand gesture recognition based on perceptual color space such as HIS, HSV/HSB, HSL. Vision-based hand gesture recognition is an important problem in the field of human-computer interaction, since hand motions and gestures could potentially be used to interact with computers in more natural ways. The robot control was done purely based on the orientation histograms a simple and fast algorithm on the system which would recognize static hand gestures with HSV color spaces as major parameters. The wireless based mobile robot system using hand gestures is a new innovative user interface that resolves the complications of using numerous remote controls for various applications. Based on one unified set of hand gestures, this system interprets the user hand gestures into pre-defined commands to control the remote robot. The experimental results are very encouraging as the system produces real-time responses and highly accurate recognition towards various gestures under different lighting conditions.
