Classification of Functional Grasps Using Hybrid CNN/LSTM Network

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


Gestures made by a human can be classified using Electromyography (EMG) sig-nals collected from the forearm; even with low frequency devices. Numerous steps are required from data collection and pre-processing through to final classi-fication. Traditionally, an important part of EMG signal classification is extract-ing features from the raw signal to reduce dimensionality. It is predominantly car-ried out manually before the signals are input into a neural network. In this re-search we successfully used a CNN to extract the features automatically and an LSTM layer was utilized to classify the gestures. This network architecture re-moves a step in the gesture classification process. Using the raw signals input into a CNN/LSTM hybrid increased classification when compared with an LSTM net-work that required features to be manually extracted from the raw signals.
