This is a video demonstration from Soubhi Hadri of an AI based gesture recognition system that can be used to control an ArduPilot multicopter (in this case it is a simulated quadcopter).
The system is open source so if you want to look further into how it’s done:
- the code is here on github: https://github.com/SubhiH/HandGesturesDroneController
- the dataset used to train the AI engine: https://github.com/SubhiH/HandsDataset
- Autopilot control (uses Dronekit): https://github.com/SubhiH/Autopilot
Nicely done Soubhi!
By the way, Soubhi is graduating from University soon so if you’re looking for a talented engineer you can find more info on him here!
