A Vision Based Hand Gesture Interface for Controlling VLC Media Player

Human Computer Interaction can acquire several advantages with the introduction of different natural forms of device free communication. Gestures are a natural form of actions which the authors often use in user's daily life for interaction, therefore to use it as a communication medium with computers generates a new paradigm of interaction with computers. This paper implements computer vision and gesture recognition techniques and develops a vision based low cost input device for controlling the VLC player through gestures. VLC application consists of a central computational module which uses the Principal Component Analysis for gesture images and finds the feature vectors of the gesture and save it into a XML file. The Recognition of the gesture is done by K Nearest Neighbour algorithm.
