Hand gestures are just one of the many methods used to control robots now days — providing “an expressive, natural and… all intuitive way for humans to control robotic systems to perform specific tasks”. Video demonstration after the jump

Human-robot interaction using hand gestures provides a formidable challenge. This is because the environment contains a complex background, dynamic lighting conditions, a deformable human hand shape, and a real-time execution requirement
