Abstract: Computers have been aiding us to perform herculean tasks for decades. From carrying out complicated calculations to automating a lot of our daily life’s processes - all has been made possible due to advancement in technology and making computers smarter. In a similar fashion, we can implement a program that mimics the way the human eye works (Computer Vision) and make it recognize the patterns that it comes across. Our goal is to make a program that is able to recognize gestures made by our hand. The program is written in Python programming language along with OpenCV libraries.
In order to use this program, the user needs to be in front of a computer webcam that will be used to recognize the gesture made by the user’s hand. The program will display results of recognized hand gestures on a live video frame stream.
