Gesture Controlled Raspberry Pi Rover

In this video I demonstrate a gesture controlled Raspberry Pi rover I created as a pet project. I recently purchased a Adeept Mars Rover PiCar-B and thought to extend it by adding gesture control functionality to it.
For gesture recognition, I am using a NodeMCU wired to a GY-521 (MPU-6050) breakout board. The NodeMCU constantly reads the 3-axis accelerator readings and transmits them to the Raspberry Pi rover over MQTT channel.
Though I have used Adeept Mars Rover but this application is not specific to it. You can use any rover/car and customize the driving logic accordingly.
