What is this course about?

Sixth sense technology is a revolutionary technology that can change the physical world around us and make it more simpler. By using this technology the user can use natural hand gestures to control all the electronic devices in an innovative way.

This course introduces you to the amazing world of sixth sense technology and its fascinating applications. Using an Arduino board and other electronic components, you will develop a robot that can be controlled through digital information. The digital information is processed using the image processing technique which takes the input data from the user who can give commands using hand gestures.

Apart from gaining practical skills on Sixth Sense technology, you will learn about the Arduino Architecture, Arduino Programming, Image Processing technology by doing this project based course.
