Control Chopsticks Gripper with Your Brain

Keywords: myCobot, Robot Control, Gesture Recognition



In this video, I’m controlling a chopstick gripper with EMG signals. I make use of the Spiker Box from Backyard Brains.

You can print your own gripper from the model at this link. It is made to mimic how chopsticks are usually held in hands, with one chopstick fixed and the other one rotating around an axis.

The robot is being controlled with Hand Gestures as in the previous video.

Processing for hand gesture recognition and signal classification for EMG signals is done on my laptop and commands are sent to the robot with ZMQ.
