AnthroTronix to Exhibit Glove-Controlled Robotic Arm at the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting of New Champions
Instrumented Glove Technology will be Featured in an Interactive Display at the ‘Human-Robot Collaboration’ Exhibition
Silver Spring, MD – AnthroTronix (www.atinc.com and @AnthroTronix) will invite participants to try its instrumented gesture recognition glove technology that uses the natural movements of the operator’s hand/arm to control the movement of a robotic device at the World Economic Forum (WEF) Annual Meeting of New Champions.
WHO: AnthroTronix, an engineering research and development company that has been recognized among Inc. Magazine’s “5000 Fastest Growing Companies” and selected by the World Economic Forum as a Technology Pioneer company.
WHAT: At the “Human-Robot Collaboration” Exhibition at the Annual Meeting of New Champions, AnthroTronix will display its instrumented gesture recognition glove technology that uses the movement of fingers, hands, wrists, and arms to control robotic devices. AnthroTronix will invite attendees to wear the glove to control a robotic arm and grasp and move objects. Muse, a brain sensing headband by InteraXon, will be used to monitor cognitive performance and feed that data back to the robotic arm, so that it can adapt to the ability of the user.
