An Idea I’ve developed that I believe will be the main focus of this project would be;
A closed loop feedback system that would allow the wearer to grip any object with appropriate pressure, by controlling the force applied while receiving feedback from the hand when the optimum grip is obtained.
This is still quite a conceptual idea but I have found simple and cheap sensors that would allow placement on finger tips. These would provide the measurement of force applied to the object by the hand that could inform my potential code and I’m currently developing ideas on how to inform the user when the desired grip is reached.
Before any of this system can be developed I need to figure out a quantitative method to measure and compare the sensors to. Although measurement and recording of the sensors will be straight forward obtaining a control method to compare against is yet to be found.
