The aim of this final project is to introduce the creation of an intelligent data glove
prototype and a supplementing visualization software that can be later improved and used
for intuitive control of special machines and robot arms.
In the first two part, the research for existing data gloves examples, furthermore
the possible solutions for measuring the motions of the hand are introduced, with
emphasis on the different types of flex sensors. In addition, the creation and testing of a
homemade flex sensor are discussed.
In the next chapters the design steps of the hardware are demonstrated, which is
based on a PIC32 microcontroller and communicates via a bluetooth module with the
computer. Afterwards the implementation of the firmware for the hardware is introduced,
and also the software for the simulation created in LabVIEW.
In the last part the conducted test are presented along with the evaluation of the
results, and also the possibilities for the reasons behind the reasons for the results are
