This paper is about a project of controlling a Robotic Arm with the actions of our own arm. It put to use the relatively new and developing technology of Augmented Reality. The same is achieved by image processing and a simple webcam as the sole sensor of the system. It frees the controlling arm from the hassles of having to wear a set of bioelectric sensors to detect any movement and thus reduce the cost of the system drastically. The project uses image processing toolbox of MATLAB to process the visual signals obtained by the webcam and then drive the mechanical arm through a microcontroller. The idea behind this project was to check the feasibility of the virtual reality in real time systems known as augmented reality. In real time a lot of noise creep into the system making the processing a very complex task. Though the project has been implemented in controlled environment but it shows considerable relevance in uncontrolled environments as well. It showed that the technology of augmented reality can be implemented in real sense
