HAND GESTURE RECOGNITION FOR WEBCAM APPLICATION BASED ON DESKTOP
Keywords: hand gesture recognition, webcam, picture
Automatic picture taking has always been an inconvenience in daily life. When people want to take a group picture or take a picture from far distance and there is no one around to help, the webcam operator needs to set the timer on the webcam and quickly run into the view of the picture to be taken. If multiple shots are wanted, the camera operator will have to make multiple trips back to the camera, which is very troublesome. Some webcams support remotely controlled picture taking, but it is not convenience. Thus, it is very desirable to have more efficient webcam application with automatic commands. HanGestCam is webcam application based on desktop with hand gesture recognition feature. The purpose of this application is to minimize physical contact between user and the computer. The main feature of this application is to capture image with hand gesture recognition.
