Abstract

In this paper, the integration of Leap Motion controller with RoboAnalyzer software has been reported. Leap Motion is a vision based device that tracks the motion of human hands, which was processed and used to control a virtual robot model in RoboAnalyzer, an established robot simulation software. For intuitive control, the robot model was copied and transformed to be placed at four different locations such that the user watches four different views in the same graphics environment. This novel method was used to avoid multiple windows or viewports and was observed to have a marginally better rendering rate. Several trials of picking up cylindrical objects (pegs) and moving them and placing in cylindrical holes were carried out and it was found that the manipulation was intuitive, even for a novice user.
