Abstract

Advanced robotics is the future of technology. In the paramount ways that it can be implemented, there are some devices that can make their use very simple and effective. This paper presents one such device, that is, the leap motion technology and its implementation in a new age robotic arm. The robotic arms developed till now, either need a digital glove or a joystick to be operated. In other words, some kind of extra machinery or devices is needed to make a robotic arm work. This paper defines a robotic arm that needs no such extra help from external devices and runs solely on human command. The only human effort or manual intervention required in this would be to just make a gesture and see task getting done by the robotic arm. This arm can assist a lot in search and rescue operations. In the tough world like ours, where it is not possible for humans to reach everywhere, especially in the case of natural disasters, technology like this can come to a great aid.
