This article discusses face and hand sign recognition and its applications. We have already proposed a method that can recognize faces and hand signs using hierarchical discriminant analysis. Here, we implement this method on a laptop computer and develop a real-time system that can control home appliances by recognizing faces and hand signs. Our system can control various appliances in the home by remote control. Moreover, since our system can recognize the user, it can assign distinct commands to the hand signs of each user and limit the appliances and functions that users can control.
