Computer simulation of surgery and scientific experiments help in preparation, training, and assessment. These benefits can be further extended with the integration of robotics for teleoperation and assistance. We describe our efforts to build a realistic and useable simulation for astronaut training and experiment planning. Most of our development focused on user interaction with hand sensors, a necessary component for realism. For the hands, we developed a simulation and focused on aspects of… Expand
Kinematic Mapping and Calibration of the Thumb Motions for Teleoperating a Humanoid Robot Hand
Mapping and calibration from a human hand to a robot hand pose a challenge due to their differences in kinematic structures. This paper uses the CyberGlove® as the input device for telemanipulatingExpand
'Visual-fidelity' dataglove calibration
TLDR
A novel calibration method for data-gloves with many degrees of freedom that explicitly models the cross-couplings of the abduction sensors with the neighboring flex sensors, and shows that the method performs superior to linear calibration in most cases. Expand

Interactive hand pose estimation using a stretch-sensing soft glove
TLDR
A stretch-sensing soft glove to interactively capture hand poses with high accuracy and without requiring an external optical setup is proposed, and a deep network architecture that exploits the spatial layout of the sensor itself is proposed. Expand
Data-driven glove calibration for hand motion capture
TLDR
This paper presents a novel glove calibration approach that can map raw sensor readings to hand motion data with both accurate joint rotations and fingertip positions, and elegantly handles the sensor coupling problem by treating calibration as a flexible mapping from sensor Reading to Joint rotations.

State of the Art in Hand and Finger Modeling and Animation
TLDR
This report discusses current methods in motion capturing hands, data‐driven and physics‐based algorithms to synthesize their motions, and techniques to make the appearance of the hand model surface more realistic, and describes emerging trends and applications for virtual hand animation. Expand
