Theres never anything wrong with developing your own EMG device I found a link that creates a rudimentary one using a arduino http://www.instructables.com/id/Muscle-EMG-Sensor-for-a-Microcontroller/

That’s a great suggestion. I think I just might do that!

So does anyone have any suggestions as to what sort of sensors might be worth exploring for this project?
I believe having an optical sensor such as leap motion would greatly aid in modeling hand motions, but I also think having ultra sonics might be also useful to map out a three dimensional model of the hand at a given point in time.
Open to any suggestions!

Please correct me if I am wrong. You are going to need two cameras right? and there is an array of sensors that can be used and I saw this link from leapmotion https://www.leapmotion.com/solutions/industrial take a look at this it seems simple and I think it will not be requiring a EMG and one final question why EMG? it’ll be operator specific then if that guy is not well then no one can take his unit to use.

Aditya, leap motion is very nice but with things as sensitive as bomb disposal, I would rather use sensors that rely on sensors directly attached to the user rather than optics. However, my vision does incorporate optics and feel that if a properly calibrated emg setup paired with sensors such as leap motion, it will give the user full autonomy.
As I said earlier, for bomb disposal applications, only an expert should be touching such a setup so the calibration aspect is a very large hurdle to overcome. But I do see your point and agree. I am still in the stages of discovery so all suggestions/comments such as your own are very much welcome.

So then Jin Lee it’s better to have two sets of camera’s one for relaying the video and another for IR. In terms of sensors I have no idea but you need some costly servo’s to make this work and atleast few hundred man hours of coding. And if you could get the chemical signature of different explosives and electrical charecterastics of detonators will also do good.
