IDEA

Regarding Reading the Hand Gesture/Movement…
Rather than Reading it from Sensored Gloved (as shown in Photo) can we do it simply by a simple Camera… by little Image Processing… Tracking the Finger and Hand and controlling the Robotic hand accordingly. Will be non-evasive and easier and high precision too.

See, if we want precise movement mapping then we need to place minimum two sensors each on one finger. This would be best for a start. The main work here is to map out finger/hand movements. Making a mechanical hand is not that much difficult.

Google to our rescue, you would be knowing there are no muscles in fingers…“Fingers do not contain muscles (other than arrector pili). The muscles that move the finger joints are in the palm and forearm. The long tendons that deliver motion from the forearm muscles may be observed to move under the skin at the wrist and on the back of the hand.” So first we need to research on how out hand/fingers work. Do some research on this and we will discuss this again tomorrow.

https://www.sparkfun.com/products/9674 Think a way to use this in scenario. This should help us in getting somewhere to channel our research. You should get my point what I am saying. If not let me know.

I am also waiting for the reply. Or again the project is stalled. For past some days I was busy on my own company project. There is too much work to do here. Let us know about the progress Akhil P Jacob
