Hand gesture, colour detection, human computer interaction (HCI), HSV Color Model, Web camera


As we know, for every electronic device, we need to perform some actions to control them. For example, in computers we use mouse cursor movements (left click, right click, double click) to perform different actions. There are mainly three ways to control mouse: wired mouse, touch-pad for laptops, joystick, touch screen technology and gesture recognition (facial expressions, hand, head, voice).In this paper, we represent a novel approach for better human computer interaction (HCI) where we are using hand gesture recognition using real-time camera in order to overcome the drawbacks of existing methods and make the system cheaper and more user friendly. Our method is to use a camera and computer vision technology, such as image segmentation and gesture recognition, to control mouse tasks. Hand gestures are acquired using web camera based on color detection. In this paper two color tapes (dynamic colors) are used on fingers. The tapes will be used for controlling cursor movement and the relative distance between the two colored tapes will be used for click events of the mouse. Through web camera the real time video is captured. After that image processing is performed on each frame of that video in order to detect the colour. And accordingly particular actions are performed on the screen. This will be useful to promote controlling applications like computer games, browsing images etc.
