The hand is controlled by an Arduino Uno microcontroller. The Arduino receives signals from an amplifier circuit and then activates servo motors based on the amplitude.
The metacarpus was manufactured using a process called 3-D printing. This involves melting layers of plastic together to achieve the final product.
Designing the hand involved using computer-aided design (CAD) software.
Determining the antagonistic muscles used to operate the fingers.
The hand receives signals using a technique called electromyography (EMG).
Design a functional structure that operates comparably to the human hand
Design an electrical system that is capable of actuating the structure
Design a myoelectric control system that gives the body control of the structure
Design a feedback system that allows the body to receive signals from the structure
