Overview

In this assignment, I’ve made Glove devices for car driver. Using this gloves, drivers can use the finger gesture methods for control of some functions in the car.

Challenges

  • Needlework!
  • I needed to figure out each flex sensors value, because their values ware difficult each other even same situation.
  • I needed to figure out how should I define the finger gesture’s philosophy and rules.

Future Work Ideas

  • Test using real car and road.
  • Add functions (phone, vehicle info,,,)
  • Use a muscle sensors
