Project Description

Evaluation of the Biosleeve Gesture Control Interface for Telerobotics in Microgravity
For future missions with human-robot teams, the NASA Space Technology Roadmap highlights challenges in human-robot interfaces for dexterous telerobotic control, gesture control of robotic assistants, and telesupervision. To help address these challenges, JPL is developing a sleeve-based gesture recognition interface that could be embedded and worn in IVA and EVA suits. The JPL BioSleeve incorporates electromyography sensors (to measure muscle activity), inertial sensors (IMUs), and magnetic field sensors, to provide intuitive force and position control signals from natural arm, hand, and finger movements. In the near-term, we plan to propose BioSleeve technology demonstrations aboard the ISS for gestural control of the Canadarm2 and SPHERES robot platforms. More »
