Hand Gesture Recognition Matlab

Download Document/Synopsis
Here we proposed a system where hand gesture is recognized using image processing. System detects number of fingers. System detects separated fingers which are above the palm. System first detects skin color from image using filtering. Image undergoes various image preprocessing steps in order to give accurate number of fingers. System finds nearest point from contour point. System erodes the image based on the centroid point. We applied more image preprocessing steps on resultant image so that fingers appear accurately. System finally detects number of fingers and displays the count to user

  • Image preprocessing steps are used to get accurate count.
  • System removes all unwanted objects for counting only fingers.
  • Works only on images
  • Requires clear image for processing
