Abstract

This paper presents a novel approach to control or navigate mobile platforms in a GPS denied environment, using natural human gestures. Gesture based interfaces and visual computing techniques are used to develop systems that can be used in Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) navigation using body postures. This approach will easily marginalize the complexity in Human-Computer interaction (HCI), making it more intuitive and repetitive.
