Hand Gesture Controlled WiFi Robot

Welcome to our new DIY series – Spinel Crux –  A DIY Advanced Hand Gesture Control Robot using Raspberry Pi for Wireless Surveillance Project.

Yes, of course, building and tinkering with a DIY robot is fun. In this series, we will build a Raspberry Pi Rover Robot which can travel through rough terrain and control using hand gestures.

Gesture Control Robot - Spinal Crux

To drive this Telepresence Robot we will be using a control glove which acts as a gesture sensor. The gesture sensor will have an accelerometer and a flex sensor to control the status and the direction it should move. The flex sensor activates the Spinel Crux and the tilt of the accelerator determines the direction it should move. And yes, there is a robot building kit available for you to build one yourself.

Hand Gesture Controlled Robot for Wireless Surveillance Demo

Now just for a taste, watch the Demo Video of the Spinel Crux – The DIY Gesture Controlled Robot. In this demo video, we show you how you can control the robot using just hand gesture.

In this video series, we will explain everything about this gesture control WiFi Robot, controlling it with the hand gesture using the gesture sensor control glove and will show you how to make one yourself.

We will provide you with the design, code of the gesture-controlled robot and links to all the products used in this project including the robot building kit.

How does this Gesture Controlled Robot Work?

We build a control glove to control the WiFi Robot using hand gestures which will act as a gesture sensor. We use Raspberry Pi and Arduino to create our Gesture Controlled Robot. Arduino to make the control glove, which will detect the hand gestures and send the data to Spinel Crux via WiFi.

We use a Raspberry Pi to make the Robot, which will receive the data sent from the Arduino, process them and control the bot.

Tutorial on building the Gesture Controlled Robot using Arduino and Raspberry Pi will be available in our YouTube channel as well as our website. So make sure you SUBSCRIBE this channel by clicking this subscribe YouTube button below for future videos.

How to Make your Own Gesture Control Robot Tutorial

We will now head over to the tutorial section and will start building it. For your convenience, I will be dividing this post into two parts. In the first part, I will show you how to make the controlling glove and in the second part, I will show you how to build this DIY robot.
Links to the robot building kit are also available in our project tutorial pages so that you can buy any robot building kit you want and build your own DIY robot as per your needs.

  1. Hey,
    I’m trying to do the wiring setup for the robot part but there is no circuitry or anything under the tutorial. Can you please help?
