A Further Review of the Data

After obtaining initial results, I conducted further studies on myself to ensure that the random forest regressor was not simply memorizing the data. I employed a method that involved starting two separate sessions for open muscle and LASK data capture, but only fed one of them into the model. During the training process, I kept… Read More »A Further Review of the Data

Finger Movement Recognition Using Radial Pressure Sensors on the Forearm and Machine Learning Techniques

Abstract In this study, we present a novel and cost-effective method for detecting individual finger movements using a custom pressure sensor array based on Hall effect sensors and magnets. Twelve sensors were placed radially around the forearm, and machine learning techniques, specifically a random forest regressor, were employed to distinguish between finger curls. With only… Read More »Finger Movement Recognition Using Radial Pressure Sensors on the Forearm and Machine Learning Techniques
