Music Controller, Gesture Recognition


By keeping in mind the similarities of human hand shape with four fingers and one thumb, this paper aims to present a real time system for hand gesture recognition on the basis of detection of some meaningful shape based features like orientation, status of fingers, thumb in terms of raised or folded fingers of hand and their respective location in image. A primary goal of gesture recognition research is to create a system which can identify specific human gestures and use them to convey information or for device control.The proposed system mainly focuses on scenarios where we are multitasking that is working on many applications at a time or running various programs at a time on our desktop and along with that listening to music in background that is music being played in one of the windows. At such times if we wish to pause or switch a particular music track we have to make some movements like switching to the music window and doing the desired operation. This process is bit long and time consuming as well. Suppose if you can do this operation without switching to the media player and by doing just one hand movement, it will save some time and also keep you linked with the work you doing currently. With the help of Music Controller, one can simply wave or do a simple gesture of hand movement in front of the webcam which will in turn switch or pause the particular music track that was being played.
