School of Engineering Division of Integrative Systems and Design 167 Division of Integrative Systems and Design Synthetic Tactile Sensing For Prosthetic Fingers Supervisor: LEUNG Suk Wai Winnie / ISD Student: LIU Hanmo / CPEG Course: UROP1100, Summer It has been a long time that people imagine that artificial fingers can simulate the sensing function of real hands. By adding multiple sensors, the artificial fingers may accept the different environmental signals such as pressure, fracture, temperature, etc. Sensing the signals is the first step for prosthetic fingers. This research focuses on how to construct one appropriate circuit which can apply to specific sensors to fulfill the requirement of the gloves. A Multi-Source Semantic 3D Modeling Platform for Virtual HKUST Supervisor: YEUNG Sai Kit / ISD Student: PANG Ho Kiu Holdee / MAE Course: UROP1100, Spring The aim of this project is to create a system that can generate a 3D virtual model for HKUST using object segmentation. RGB-D sensor and other computer vision techniques to acquire the 3D virtual model of HKUST. For the current stage, we are tasked with two main duties, understanding the methods of image recognition and object segmentation, and designing a robot for travelling, detecting and manipulating objects. The final semantic 3Dmodel will be useful in many ways, such as virtual walkthrough (virtual reality), robotics training, route and evaluation planning, campus re-design/remodeling. HKUST in VR Supervisor: YEUNG Sai Kit / ISD Student: LAI Kam Wai / ISDN TSE Yui Kai / ISDN Course: UROP1100, Summer UROP1100, Summer This project requires the use of Unity and VR equipment to create a virtual environment for laser cutter training. Tutorials on Unity VR are taken to familiarize with the application of the software. Training for manufacturing tools used to be tedious and time-consuming, since one-to-one training is usually required for students to be familiar with the operation, which takes technicians so much time and effort to repeatedly teach individual students. Hence, training using virtual reality might be a way to increase the efficiency of training since students can be trained without technicians and it does not require multiple physical devices for training. Currently, laser cutter, water-jet cutter, 3D printer, and welding machine in virtual space are built to make a virtual ISD Works! for students to interact with machine training.
