The paper describes a robustness of MEMS based Gesture Controlled Robot is a kind of robot that can be by our hand gestures rather than an ordinary old switches or keypad. In Future there is a chance of making robots that can interact with humans in an natural manner. Hence our target interest is with hand motion based gesture interfaces. An innovative Formula for gesture recognition is developed for identifying the distinct action signs made through hand movement. A MEMS Sensor was used to carry out this and also an Ultrasonic sensor for convinced operation. In order to full-fill our requirement a program has been written and executed using a microcontroller system. Upon noticing the results of experimentation proves that our gesture formula is very competent and it’s also enhance the natural way of intelligence and also assembled in a simple hardware circuit.
