Based on Visual Hand Recognition the task is to develop and implement a system to recognize known (and possibly also define new) simple gestures meant to be used as commands issued to a robot.
As robots increasingly enter the daily life of humans their command and control has to be tailored to the laymen that use these robots just as much. For a user of a domestic service robot it is convenient to instruct a robot in a natural fashion. Besides input modalities such as speech, gestures are a very intuitive means to do so. There are several issues to address such as hand detection, posture recognition, and finally gestures and their mapping to commands.
