  • Abstract

    In terms of its software development, virtual manufacturing continues to be developed and updated following the manufacturing technology development. To develop the input aspect of virtual manufacturing and improve virtual interactivity, a muscle sensor is used to convert a user muscle contraction value into software inputs. This study aims to filter and calibrate the digital signal from a muscle sensor input device designed for virtual manufacturing environment interaction. Common type of digital filters are designed, tested, and compared using MATLAB to find the optimum filter types and parameters. Furthermore, the signal is calibrated to each individual user. The filtered and calibrated input allows the user to interact with objects virtually in a virtual manufacturing environment.
