A robotic hand controlled by computer vision + sensored glove
What are the challenges in mapping human movement to robotic movement?
For this project I wanted to explore the challenges and implications when mapping human movement to robotic movement. This project
grew out of my vision of a surgeon, possibly located a continent away, using a video interface and sensored glove to control a robotic arm and perform a surgical procedure on a distant patient. I imagined a
"robotic surgical arm" being deployed to different locations where it could be taken from the wall and used when needed much like the modern AED. I was responsible for the building of the robotic arm + hand. This project was built over the course of several weeks during my
Physical Computing course (NYU Interactive Telecommunication Program).
