Abstract

A hand gesture monitoring system based on fiber-optic curvature sensors is developed. A glove is used as a carrier to support the monitoring system. According to the freedom of the hand joint, the layout of the sensors is established. An untreated fiber is introduced as a reference signal. The division operation between the sensing signal and reference signal is regarded as the monitoring result, which can reduce the monitoring error produced by external unstable factors. The experimental results show that the measurement errors are within the range of $ \pm \pi /{36}$ and $ \pm \pi /{75}$, respectively, when measuring the joint bending and abduction angle, which indicates the feasibility of the proposed monitoring system.
