Teleoperating using hand gestures

The idea of this project is converting IMU orientation into the linear and angular velocity of the robot. Here is the overall structure of this project.

For the IMU device, we are using an IMU called MPU-9250 (https://www.invensense.com/products/motion-tracking/9-axis/mpu-9250/). The IMU will interface with an Arduino board using the I2C protocol. The orientation values from the IMU are computed by the Arduino and send to PC through the rosserial protocol. The orientation values are received on the PC side as ROS topics and converted into twist messages ...
