A User Independent Method for Identifying Hand Gestures with sEMG

Abstract

We propose a method to determine hand gestures using sEMG (surface Electromyogram) measured from the forearm. The detection method uses the LSTM (Long Short Term Memory) model of RNN (Recurrent Neural Network). Although the conventional method requires the learning data of the user, this is a method that an unspecified number of users can use immediately by enhancing the data. We have confirmed that the accuracy does not change even if the mounting position of the sensor is shifted. We have shown the effectiveness of the data enhancement by numerical experiments.
