Teleoperation of robotic hands has been explored a lot by researchers in the past. You can use brain control, hand gestures, and even Kinect to get it done. In this video, EPFL researchers explore EMG-based teleoperation of a robotic hand by decoding the early-stage muscular activity of an arm during reach-to-grasp motions.
By predicting the grasping function, the researchers managed to to achieve a 90% accuracy. A Cyberglove and bunch of electrodes were used to pull this off. Pretty impressive, don’t you think?
