This project discusses on development of Glove Control Helicopter. Glove control helicopter basically is a prototype device that will replace the normal joystick controller that used to control remote control (RC) helicopter. The original controller operated using two hands to control two joysticks located on the controller in order to control the movement of helicopter. Common experience shows that normal joystick controller require more skill, familiarity and well know the joystick controller in order to control the RC helicopter. Not being able to handle it properly or mishandle it may damage the helicopter due to crashes. Crashed helicopter will cost a lot of losses. Glove Control Helicopter was introduced in order to reduce failure in controlling the helicopter. This project focuses on development of system that will capture human hand gesture as signal to interact with machine. Glove is the device that been used in this project to capture human hand gesture. It measures the movement of human wrist and finger and converted it into electrical signal. In this project sensor that been used to achieve measuring of human hand movement is accelerometer and flex sensor. Middle finger movement captured using flex sensor meanwhile wrist movement captured using accelerometer. A microcontroller is used in this project to interpret data receive from both sensor. The glove controller operated by converting hand-gesture signal into electrical signal and transmits it to the helicopter receiver. The project starts with research and study on RC helicopter joystick and hand gesture controller. Then it continues with designing, checking the design and constructing prototype of glove control helicopter. The last part is testing the prototype and finalizes it. The result of test conducted in this project prove that it meet the objective of the project which to convert hand-gesture signal into electrical signal.
