Hackaberry Feedback System

Ever wondered what if an amputee with a prosthetic hand picks up a hot cup of coffee and drinks it? This feedback system let them know about the temperature of the surface.

Objective

 In this project called Hackberry Feedback System, we are making a feedback system which, will enable the user to get a feedback while grabbing an object with Hackberry Hand. The feedback could be in terms of temperature and strength while grabbing.

Solution

This project includes the attachment of two types of sensors, temperature-sensing and force-sensing on Hackberry 3D printed hand. There will be two force-sensing resistors, one on thumb and other on palm. The temperature sensitive resistor will be attached on the palm. These sensors will enable an amputee to feel temperature and strength while picking or grabbing any object. The attachment of this sensors, stand as an improvement of Hackberry 3D printed hand.

The following schematic diagram summaries the project Hackberry Feedback System
