A Hand Control and Automatic Grasping System for Synthetic Actors

  title={A Hand Control and Automatic Grasping System for Synthetic Actors},
  author={R. M. Sanso and Daniel Thalmann},
  journal={Comput. Graph. Forum},
In the computer animation field, the interest for grasping has appeared with the development of synthetic actors. Based on a grasp taxonomy, we propose a completely automatic grasping system for synthetic actors. In particular, the system can decide to use a pinch when the object is too small to be grasped by more than two fingers or to use a two-handed grasp when the object is too large. The system also offers both direct and inverse kinematics to control the articulations. In order to ensure… CONTINUE READING
