|Motion tracking technology has been largely used in Virtual Reality Game to offer more engaging experience. Most motion match device enables people to move their hands in virtual world. Based on this, our team think that providing haptical feedback to the contacts with virtual objects enhances the interaction between real world and virtual world.
We plan to build a glove with gyroscope/accelerometer sensors to track the motion of two fingers as well as vibration motors to give feedback to the fingers. Then a micro-controller will collect the raw data from sensors and transmit the data to a computer. The data should be analyzed by a program and an algorithm will calculate the position and movement of fingers as well as output the relative position in virtual world. We will use an existing 3D rendering software to generate the virtual world with a 3-D cubic object and the virtual hand. Conditions like touching the cube and pressing the cube will output a signal sending to a controller to activate the vibration motor on the glove so that to give a haptical feedback to the hand.
