Abstract
THIS PROJECT PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A TELEROBOTIC CONTROL GLOVE (TCG) FOR THE CONTROL OF ROBOTIC DEXTROUS HANDS. THE GLOVE WILL BE CAPABLE OF CONTROLLING BOTH THE POSITION OF AND THE FORCES EXERTED BY THE FINGERS OF THE ROBOTIC HAND. FEEDBACK OF BOTH TACTILE AND FORCE INFORMATION WILL BE PROVIDED TO THE OPERATOR. THE SYSTEM WILL BE EASILY INTEGRABLE WITH TELEROBOTIC ARM CONTROL SYSTEMS. THE TCG WILL GREATLY ENHANCE THE ABILITY OF OPERATORS TO PERFORM WORK USING TELEROBOTS EQUIPPED WITH DEXTROUS HAND SYSTEMS.
