Haptic Telerobot Hand Can Mimic Your Hand Motion

Teleoperating robots are nothing new. There are plenty of sophisticated systems for that on the market already. This Haptic Telerobot Hand is quite unique though. It involves using a robotic hand, SynTouch BioTac sensors, and HaptX gloves for remote touch and dexterity.

As the developers explains:

Motion data captured by HaptX Gloves controls the movement of the anthropomorphic dexterous hand by Shadow Robot Company. SynTouch’s BioTac sensors are embedded in each fingertip of the robotic hand to collect tactile data that’s recreated as haptic feedback by HaptX Gloves is transmitted to the user’s hand.

The SynTouch sensor can feel force, vibration, and temperature while the glove facilitates smooth teleoperation of the robot.
