Shiraz University Engineer Designs Gesture Control Robotic Arm Working Without Wearable Sensors

Monday, April 16, 2018 - 12:23

The MS industrial management student of Shiraz University has succeeded to design and make a robotic arm which can mimic the motion and behavior of a humans arm without requiring any wearable sensors.

According to an ISCA report, Davoud Jokar stated that robotic arms, a type of mechanical arms, are designed with similar functions to a human arm and can imitate all the human hand movements.

As he explained, due to the camera set in Kinect, a line of motion sensing input devices and based around a webcam-style add-on peripheral, it enables users to control and interact with their console/computer without the need for a game controller, through a natural user interface using gestures and spoken commands, this robotic arm records human movements and simulates them without any sensors.

Jokar noted that this robotic arm can be applied in laboratories while working with hazardous chemicals. It also can overcome involuntary hand tremors. The current 3D device is a prototype and in a further effort, the designer is trying to develop and improve its efficiency in order to apply it in surgical operation.
