MIT technology uses muscle signals to control drones

MIT technology uses muscle signals to control drones

If you’ve ever driven a drone, you’ll know that using a joystick-style controller will get used to it. MIT scientists have developed what they claim as a more intuitive control system, which reads the muscle signal operator. Known as the Conduct-A-Bot, experimental settings use multiple electromyography sensors (which detect electrical activity) and motion sensors – … Read more MIT technology uses muscle signals to control drones
