A Plane Based Real-Time Algorithm For Controlling A Semi-Autonomous Robot With Hand Gestures Using The Kinect

Michael Tölgyessy, Luboš Chovanec, Peter Pásztó, Peter Hubinský


This paper presents a novel method for controlling a semi-autonomous hexapod robot by a human operator over a wireless network. The operator uses only body motion and hand gestures to control the robot when it is not operating autonomously. He or she is captured by a depth camera, discrete commands are generated and executed by the robot.
