Varying contraction levels of muscles is a big challenge in electromyography-based gesture recognition. Some use cases require the classifier to be robust against varying force changes, while others demand to distinguish between different effort levels of performing the same gesture. We use brain-inspired hyperdimensional computing paradigm to build classification models that are both robust to these variations and able to recognize multiple contraction levels. Experimental results on 5 subjects performing 9 gestures with 3 effort levels show up to 39.17% accuracy drop when training and testing across different effort levels, with up to 30.35% recovery after applying our algorithm.

Abstract

Varying contraction levels of muscles is a big challenge in electromyography-based gesture recognition. Some use cases require the classifier to be robust against varying force changes, while others demand to distinguish between different effort levels of performing the same gesture. We use brain-inspired hyperdimensional computing paradigm to build classification models that are both robust to these variations and able to recognize multiple contraction levels. Experimental results on 5 subjects performing 9 gestures with 3 effort levels show up to 39.17% accuracy drop when training and testing across different effort levels, with up to 30.35% recovery after applying our algorithm.
