Interacting with a Pet Robot Using Hand Gestures

Milyn C. Moy, MIT Artificial Intelligence Lab and Oracle Corporation

This work focuses on the real-time, visual interpretation of 2D dynamic hand gestures in complex environments. Our goal is to enable humans to communicate and interact with Yuppy, a pet robot being developed at the MIT AI Lab. The gesture lexicon consists of a set of 2D gesture classes (primitives) that include linear (vertical, horizontal, and diagonal) as well as circular (clockwise and counterclockwise) gestures.
