Leap Motion is an example of ground-breaking technology that has the potential to change the way we control machines and therefore, how we control our world! Leap Motion is a sensor that is currently used to navigate through a personal computer with just hand gestures. For our MQP, the team has used this technology to control a physical robot arm. For the second part of this project, the team used SolidWorks to design a six-degree-of–freedom robot arm with five human-like fingers. The robot was designed to be controlled by Leap Motion, with human hand gestures as the input. It utilizes all of the sensor’s features, including the simultaneous control of all five fingers. The robot could be used for virtually any application, including service in the medical or military fields.
