Abstract

DIAZ TRIBALDOS, Mónica Rocío; ESCOBAR OCAMPO, José Manuel  and  VIVAS ALBAN, Óscar Andrés. HAPTIC GLOVE WITH VIBRATORY FEEDBACK. Rev.EIA.Esc.Ing.Antioq [online]. 2015, n.23, pp.29-39. ISSN 1794-1237.

This article shows the design and construction of a glove haptic with vibration feedback. The glove, called Virtual Touch, involves flex sensors in order to capture the movement carried out by hand, as well as small vibrating motors that indicate to the user the contact with a virtual object. Two types of software were deployed to operate the device, first the ROS environment based on Linux®, and as second-instance a Windows® application using VTK (The Visualization ToolKit, open source) as rendering engine. The two applications show the virtual glove that faithfully follows the movements of real hand, in addition to clearly indicate the contact with a virtual object. In addition, in the case of the application made with VTK, deformation on the object can be seen. Future applications of this device are multiple, including the medical diagnosis.

Keywords : Haptic Interface; Haptic Glove; Vibratory Feedback; Virtual Diagnosis.
