Researchers at Khalij Fars Science Park have made a robot that imitates the movements of the human hand and can be used for high-precision tasks.
The project director Mohammadreza Khayyer said in interview with Mehr News Agency that the robot was made during a visit to the Bushehr power plant.
He added "Currently Iran is developing in nuclear energy, oil and gas refinery, and car manufacturing sections and there is the 20-year plan, and the automatization of systems will be one of the approaches to development and progress in these areas.”
"Due to the importance of robots in the development of industrial sections it was decided to make a robot that would imitate human hand movements,” he said.
Khayyer further mentioned that the device is controlled by a wired grove that is being worn by the operator, commanding the artificial hand to follow the real hand movements.
He added that as the dataglove senses the hand movements, the machine will be able to act out the same movements in greater dimensions.
