This paper provides a cooperative manipulator work system using gesture instructions. In our system, hand gestures are recognized and the manipulator works based on them. We propose block division to detect and recognize hand gestures rapidly. The template of the hand is divided into 3 blocks: base, hand and finger. Template memory is reduced by block division. The effectiveness of our system is clarified by several experimental results.
