Gesture controlled robotic arm is proposed to dispose nuclear waste generated in restricted areas like nuclear reactors. Manual labour is not the ideal choice because of the high levels of radiation. Here we use hand gestures to control the robotic arm. Hand gestures are sensed by accelerometer sensors. Servo motors are used as actuators to move the robotic arm. They will replicate the human hand gestures read using the accelerometer sensors. This method is used for replacing damaged parts in the reactor.
