Gesture recognition is renovation of a hominid movement or signal to a command with the help of mathematical algorithm. It enables any person to correlate with the machine in absence of any physical devices, as an input device to perform desired actions in a system. The technology interprets human gestures & movements, for instance movement of hands, arms, fingers, head, or the entire body. It allows users to operate & control devices merely with the gestures. Gesture is a primary source of input data. In gesture recognition technology, a camera detains the image and feed the image data to a sensing device, it perceives & interpret gesture and execute the correlated command. Most of the electronic devices such as tablets, smart phone, PCs, laptops, and TV are equipped with gesture recognition which enhances the efficiency and ease of use.
