Abstract :

Abstract—Human Computer Interaction over the past few years has been limited to using keyboard, mouse and touch-pads. All popular inputs require the user to touch various devices. Gesture recognition systems provide an avenue for touch-less interaction with computers. This project aims to propose an efficient algorithm for hand gesture detection and recognition. The algorithm uses skin colour to detect skin regions from the incoming video stream. The proposed algorithm aims to be fast at detecting and matching gestures. This will enable the recognition system to continuously run in the background without negatively affecting other user applications and tasks. Thus, we can perform quick tasks like media control without using conventional method. The media can be control using hand gestures, various hand gesture will be performing various actions like play, pause, stop, volume control
