In this paper, the authors present the hand gesture recognition system with a web camera, which is used for recognizing the hand gesture. Since the hand tracking is quite difficult, greater resolution is obtained by using a white background. For background extraction, direct inverse algorithm is used. Experimental evaluations on self-build databases of histogram values of hand gestures are maintained. Based on that pixel values, the corresponding gesture is identified and specific command is given to the robotic system.
