iTH InerTouchHand - Hand with distributed inertial sensors and touch vibro-tactile feedback

In this project we will explore the use of distributed accelerometers and vibrotactile stimulators on the hand, supported by a glove specifically designed for that purpose, to be used for enhanced virtual reality interaction and HMI-Human Machine Interface applications. Distributed accelerometers can be used to infer structure and reconstruct 6D pose of nodes, as well as relative motion, although not always fully observable. When combined with vibro-tactile stimulators a hand worn device or glove can provide spacial aware feedback.
