Abstract

We propose a technology that duplicates the posture and motions of a person's fingers and separates it from the original fingers, thereby enabling it to be used as a tool. In this study, we present a detachable exoskeleton interface that can record and replay the posture and motions of fingers using a micro servo motor and a telescopic mechanism. The micro servo motor is improved so that both the input and output of angles can be performed, and the telescopic mechanism has a variable length between joints.Wearing this system and recording the posture and motions of the fingers enabled us to test the mechanism for arranging and reproducing them in the real world independently of the user. In this paper, we describe the system implementation, an experiment to check its accuracy, two types of application, and a user study to check its usefulness.
