Controlling a 3D printed bionic hand by using brain waves
High quality bionic hands are expensive while low-cost bionic hands have many operational problems during the process of using them. Hence, this thesis aims to improve the stability of low-cost bionic hands. The Hackberry bionic hand has been selected for characterization and improvement. A new control system combining Electroencephalogram (EEG) with an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) sensor is proposed and implemented for the Hackberry bionic hand in this thesis. The purpose of the IMU sensor is to decide when the bionic hand should close based on the hand movements. The EEG-based headset ...
