Action gist based automatic segmentation for periodic in-hand manipulation movement learning
Dataset acquisition performed to the HANDLE project partner: University of Hamburg - Technical Aspects of Multimodal Systems (TAMS) Lab.
To develop a MATLAB software tool to automatically segment dexterous in-hand manipulation movements. The automatic segmentation will be compared (benchmark) to the segmentation performed manually by a human operator.
Datasets of a human demonstrator performing an in-hand dexterous manipulation tasks: screw driver in-hand rotation (periodic movement). The hand of the human subject was equipped with a Cyberglove and Tekscan tactile sensing grasp array. The demonstrations were also recorded using a monocular RGB camera. Sample dataset video:
