The Intelligent Modeling of Human Hand Motion Using Magnetic Based Techniques

Authors

Abstract

With increasing use of robots instead of human in industrial, medicine and military applications etc.
the importance of research on designing and building of robots is increasing. In this paper various
methods of the human hand motion simulation has been investigated and we used one of most common
method named Data-gloves which extract data from hand and then we simulated hand motion during
several processing stages. At first step we designed and built circuits to digitize analog data received
from sensors and we sent them to computer. Then we received extracted data in MATLAB and
processed them to simulate bending of the wrist and fingers joints graphically. In this method we
mapped data linearly to 0-90 and rotate points around relative Coordinate axis in the specific
conditions. Results show that we can simulate hand motion in real time with low cost, lowest error and
without complex and expensive equipments.
