Abstract: In this project, a different approach is used to drive a hand gesture based wheelchair with the help of Arduino Microcontroller. Gesture is a most natural, expressive way of communication between human and computer in real system. We naturally use various gestures to express our own intension in everyday life. Hand gesture is one of the important methods of non-verbal communications of the human being. Based on hand gesture, output is generated by RF Transmitter Arduino. This output serves as an input to RF Receiver Arduino. This Microcontroller runs the DC motor accordingly. The output of DC motor is used to run the wheelchair.
