This paper presents a low-cost gesture-based remote control of a ro-botic hand. The proposed control architecture is based on a commercial leap motion sensor and an Arduino board, which have been chosen due to their low-cost and user-friendly features. A specific Matlab code has been implemented to collect data from the leap motion sensor and to generate proper instructions to control a robotic hand, which has been 3D print at Sheffield Hallam Univer-sity. Experimental tests have been carried out validate the effectiveness of the proposed remote control for performing various grasping tasks.
