Project Details

Description

Technical Objectives
–Identify PYAM yarn configuration that meets necessary tensile force and strain requirements for sufficient actuation of a 4 DOF finger model
–Determine CLR sensing system configuration that provides adequate feedback to predict 5 predetermined user intended motions using a control system
–Demonstrate integration of PYAMs and CLR sensing system into partial prototype
–Design a preliminary concept of a full hand prototype with four fingers, a thumb, weighing less than 3 pounds, and necessary system components in a 6”x6”x4” backpack weighing less than 7 pounds
