ART Fingertracking

THE LIGHTWEIGHT INTERACTION SOLUTION - VIBRO-TACTILE OR PURE

The Fingertracking device is an add-on to the ART tracking system, which allows you to track the orientation of the hand and the position of the fingers.

ART's Fingertracking has the word's highest fingertip accuray of all variations of glove technology.

ART's Fingertracking is wireless, works for one as well as for both hands (4 hands with 2 users) and is available in two versions:

  • 5finger pure optical
  • 3finger with tactile feedback

ART'S FINGERTRACKING CONVINCES

  • LEDs on fingertip - unique feature of ART's Fingertracking
  • haptic feedback - as option
  • numerous third-party software supported

VIBRO-TACTILE FINGERTRACKING2 IN INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS

ART's vibro-tactile Fingertracking allows the integration of the hands of 1-2 persons acting in virtual simulations, with a millimeter accuracy of the finger movement. Also, additional objects (e.g., steering wheel, dashboard, rearview mirror) can be determined and animated with the same accuracy. The vibro-tactile feedback enables the user to feel the vibration at his/her fingertips when touching objects in the virtual world. The system can be used for ergonomics analysis, maintenance simulations, buildability analysis and other applications that require the interaction of a hand with objects in the virtual space.

THE FINGERTRACKING DEVICE CONSISTS OF

  • an active hand target for affixing to the back of the hand. Synchronization is provided with a modulated flash and the low voltage power is provided with a rechargeable battery
  • three active finger markers, each consisting of an IR LED with diffusing sphere, a fixture for the finger tip and flexible wires.
  • The active markers are time-sequentially addressed and controlled by the active hand target unit.

THE OUTPUT DATA CONSISTS OF

  • position and orientation of the back of the handnumber of tracked fingers as well as a distinguishing value for right and left hands,position and orientation of the outermost phalanx, given in the hand coordinate system - Together
  • with a radius, the position and orientation of the finger tip can be estimated.angles between the single phalanxes as well as their lengths - These values are estimated using tracked markers and empirical data.
