Animatronic Hand – Student Project Fall 2014

This project, constructed by Brad Billwiller, uses an Arduino Uno as the interface between a glove and a mechanical hand.  Flex sensors on the fingers of the glove change resistance as the fingers are flexed.  This change of resistance is detected by the Arduino and the amount of flexion (i.e. change of resistance) determines how much to turn a servo motor (one for each finger).  The servos are connected to fingers of the animatronic hand via fishing line and when the fishing line is pulled by the servos the fingers flex.
