In this study, we are implementing a QUADCOPTER and controlling its motion using GESTURE CONTROL technology. This gesture-controlled technology is implanted using image processing. The gestures are going to be recognized by a WEBCAM on a laptop or similar device, on which OPENCV and PYTHON programming is going to be done to regulate the drone’s motion using BLUETOOTH MODULE HM10.
