The focus of this project is a synthetic arm meant to benefit disabled individuals. This arm will have many functions, including temperature measurement, object detection, rotational axes (servos) and supports Bluetooth/wireless connection. These functionalities will all be displayed to an app for the user to get all the information necessary to help with their everyday lives. With the temperature sensor, it can relay information to the app on whether the object it's holding is “hot” or “cold” (such as a cup of coffee) depending on the range given.
With the Ultrasonic object sensor, the hand will be able to grasp an object after sensing it. The arm will be able to rotate and move fingers from servos, these servos also communicate with the Ultrasonic sensor. The arm will be 3D printed, and designed for the sensors to work with it. The mobile application developed on android studio will require logging in before being able to use it and will have an option to register if no account has been created. For credentials and sensor data, Google Firebase will be used. In addition with sensor and servo information given to the application, the user will be able to manually control the arm through bluetooth/wireless connection.
