With the development of technology, people are about to usher in artificial intelligence life. The use of innovative products can make people's lives more convenient, but new innovations often result in the creation of problems. The elderly face obstacles to the use of smart homes due to physical and cognitive aging. Gestural interaction as a new means of interaction can solve this problem. This thesis explores the factors that affect the elderly's understanding of gestures through interviews and finally finds suitable gesture commands set through group comparisons. The research of this thesis will finally propose a set of gesture commands suitable for the elderly and provide research methods and guidelines for future gesture system design.
