Abstract
As computer technologies improve year by year, advanced and intuitive user interfaces become increasingly necessary to allow proper manipulation of various types of programs, in different fields and markets. In the case of haptic glove devices, a fraction of the fields that come to mind are rehabilitation after injury, training simulations to learn particular movements or even allowing surgeons to operate on a patient on the other side of the globe. The aim of this project is to design a haptic glove that is lightweight, simple, easy to manipulate while still being precise enough to perform as a user interface for virtual reality systems or any other applications it may have. The glove equipped with sensors that sense the movements of the hand and its fingers and interfaces those movements with a computer. Haptic gloves are commonly used in virtual reality environments where the user sees an image of the glove and can manipulate the movements of the virtual environment using the glove.
