Paper Abstract

This paper introduces a new kind of bend sensor. It can be used to detect the bend angle of an object or inclination between two objects. It has characteristics of small size, lightweight, high reliability, fine flexibility and plasticity. When this bend sensor is used with a proper converting circuit, it can implement dynamic measuring the bend angle of an object conveniently. This paper also describes the application of this bend sensor in dataglove. The dataglove using the new bend sensor introduced here not only can meet the need of real time and angle resolution of virtual reality system, but also has features of low costs and high reliability.
