Telepresence is a necessity for this time as we can't reach everywhere and also it’s useful in saving human life at dangerous places. A robot, which could be controlled from a distant location, can solve these problems. This could be via communication waves or networking methods. Also controlling should be real time and so smooth that it can actuate on every minor signal in an effective way. Robot control through hand gesture in real time has been an investigative area among researchers. This paper discusses a method controlling a robot over the network from a distant location. The robot is controlled by hand gestures which were captured by camera live. A DSP board TMS320DM642EVM was used to implement image pre- processing and fastening the system. PCA was used for gesture classification and robot actuation would happen according to predefined procedures. Classification information was sent over the network in the experiment. This method is robust and could be used to control any kind of robot over distance.
