Gesture Controlled Car is a robot which can be controlled by simple human gestures. The user just needs to wear a gesture device in which a sensor is included. The sensor will record the movement of hand in a specific direction which will result in the motion of the robot in the respective directions.

In this wireless gesture controlled robot project we are going to control a robot using hand gestures. This is an easy, user-friendly way to interact with robotic systems and robots. An accelerometer is used to detect the tilting position of your hand, and a microcontroller gets different analogue values and generates command signals to control the robot. The gestures can be interpreted from any kind of physical movement or condition, but usually arise from a person. Gesture recognition can be explained as a method by which a computer can understand the language of the human body, thereby creating a communication bridge between humans and machines than normal text based or a terminal user interfaces or even graphical user interfaces (GUIs) that still restrict most of the mouse and keyboard inputs.This concept can be implemented in a robotic arm used for welding or handling hazardous materials, such as in nuclear plants. Detailed description of the project is discussed below.
