Hey guys, welcome back. In this post, I am gonna show you how you can make this Gesture Controlled Robot using Arduino and PAJ7620 Gesture Sensor. I will explain what PAJ7620 Sensor is, detect various hand gestures and how to control this robot using this sensor. Let’s Get Started.
Video Demo & Tutorial
PAJ7620 Gesture Sensor is a quick and easy way to add gesture control to your Arduino or Raspberry Pi Project. This tiny little sensor can recognize various hand gestures such as moving your hands up, down, left, right, forward, backward, clockwise, anti-clockwise and waving.
HC12 Wireless Module
Here I will be using HC12 wireless module for sending data from the Sensor to the robot. It is one of the most commonly used wireless modules in the field of robotics and other remote control applications.
It is an Off Road 6 Wheel Drive Crawler which can be remotely controlled using an Arduino remote controller. Here also we will be using the same robot, only thing different here will be the code which we will upload to the robots Arduino. If You haven’t seen that yet, click the link above and watch it first.
For ease, we will be dividing the Arduino Gesture Control Robot Tutorial into two parts – The Transmitter and The Receiver.
The Transmitter of the Gesture Controlled Robot consist of PAJ7620 Gesture sensor which senses the gesture, an Arduino that process the signal and a HC12 Wireless module that will transmit the signal to the Receiver
The Receiver part consist of a HC12 wireless module that receives the signal from the Transmitter module, an Arduino which will process the signal and drive our Arduino Gesture Controlled Robot.
You will find complete codes and connection details of the transmitter and receiver in my blog. Click here to check that out.
