EMG-based Teleoperation of Robots Using Cyberglove & Muscle Sensors

In the past few years, we have covered a bunch of interesting projects that involve controlling robots using Myo, Kinect, and Leap. EPFL researchers are exploring the idea of  EMG-based decoding of grasp gestures to teleoperate robotic arms.

By predicting the grasping function during reach-to-grasp motions, researchers managed to reach and accuracy of 90%. A Cyberglove and electrodes were used to record muscle activity and finger joints movements.
