How can I move my mouse according to a centroid value?

1 view (last 30 days)
I have been trying to complete a gesture recognition mouse control program in MATLAB and want to do this without using color detection. So far I have been able to structure the code how I best see fit but I am unable to get the mouse to move with the centroid of my hand.
The gestures I have are number-based:
1 - the mouse will move according to the centroid of my hand.
2 - left click
3 - right click
4 - double click
5- scroll
I have gesture 1 as the start of a while loop with gestures 2-5 inside the loop. Is there any way I can move the mouse according to my centroid value?
I have tried using color detection, which works well, but it isnt an option for my final project. So far, the finger detection has worked for gestures 2-5 but not for 1. Any help is greatly appreciated!
