This project proposes a novel low cost approach to gesture recognition using neural networks for end user applications control in contrary to more expensive devices prevalent in the market. The final outcome is proposed to be a versatile product with variety of applications which can cater to many user needs. In fact, a person with minimal programming knowledge can design an application with the proposed and prototyped device. The use of neural networks has made this possible, as the pattern recognition of neural networks is highly accurate than conventional programming. © 2014 IEEE.
