Using pressure sensors for motion detection and actuation of remote manipulation devices

ABSTRACT: Remote manipulation devices are used to extend the possibilities of human action over long distances or in environments inaccessible to man. In this paper we present an application to control a robotic arm with anthropomorphic effector, including a haptic feedback system, that provides the operator direct information on the interactions between effector and items handled by robotic arm. The system uses pressure sensors placed on the robotic hand palm and fingers connected and correlated with haptic actuators placed on the operator’s control glove. Pressure information from the robotic hand is processed using a microcontroller development system, and then is transmitted to the operator’s interface, where the specific vibration is generated using the haptic actuators. Experiments have shown that vibrations applied at different points of the palm and fingers of the operator were identified correctly most of the time, as sensations of pressure.

KEYWORDS: pressure sensors, motion detection, haptic feedback, remote control.
