Haptic gloves for virtual reality training

29 January 2020

California-based BeBop Sensors has developed smart sensor fabric that is able to capture data and track the wearer’s hands. The Forte Wireless Data Gloves have flexible sensors embedded in the fabric which enables tracking and data collection. This enables a person’s hand movements to be realistically recreated in a virtual environment.

The one-size-fits-all glove includes haptic feedback and can be used wirelessly for up to 15 hours. The gloves are ideal for immersive training in a digital environment using virtual reality. Tasks that are complex or dangerous can be recreated in virtual reality, allowing trainees to learn about complex tasks in a realistic, yet safe manner. The gloves can also be used for the control of objects such as robots and drones, as well as the navigation of data via a user interface when wearing virtual reality headsets.
