Xsens Metagloves | Calibration

We are looking for new colleagues.

Introduction


The Xsens Metagloves use electromagnetic field to track the position of your fingertips. Inside the casing, there is also an IMU to track the rotation of your wrist.

To calibrate the gloves to your hands, use the MANUS Core Dashboard. To calibrate the gloves to your hands, use MANUS Core Dashboard. This process includes 3 poses, with 3 steps per pose. For each pose you will see a preview, then you’ll have time to mimic the pose, and during the last step the pose will be recorded. During the calibration, please mimic the poses in a comfortable fashion.

Calibration Steps


1.      First, place your hand on a flat surface and close your fingers, but point your thumb outwards.

2.      After that, raise your hand and close all fingers to make a fist

3.      Lastly, touch the base of the palm of your hand repeatedly with your fingertips. Continue till the calibration step is complete.

After you finish the calibration on one glove, follow the same steps for your other hand.

The calibration is stored on the gloves, so the next time you turn them on, you don’t need to calibrate again.
