Mimetik – Empowering human motion in cyberspace

We empower human motion in cyberspace through an in-depth analysis of hand movements and interfacing them to machines. With our Mimetik glove, you can collect and visualize data and stream it to any program, robot, or system that you want to control by a hand movement.

Mimetik is a pioneer in creating high-tech smart-glove solutions for industrial applications & beyond. Founded as a spin-off from TU Dresden & integrated into the CeTI research cluster of excellence of Technische Universität Dresden, Mimetik has advanced the development of digitally identifying, tracking & documenting hand movements without the need for cameras. The sensor-based Mimetik glove captures movement data. Through our smart algorithms we can identify specific movements and will be able to teach best movement patterns to new users. We are convinced that the integration of digital hand movements can become the gateway technology to the Metaverse implementation

Tech Platform and Specifics

Groundbreaking research is in the core of all that we do at Mimetik. We design technology that helps to interact with millions of new devices without long manuals and training. An intuitive interaction with machines is a main principle in all stages of Mimetik product design.

Our product gives an eyesight to machines by analyzing hand movements. We avoid keyboard, mouse, joystick, tablet. Machines understand a human directly by watching the hand movements through our gloves. They are not prone to an occlusion like cameras. A person has a full freedom of movement, not limited by wires or a working zone.

Our software understands what the gloves see. Complex and detailed trajectories of multiple sensors are interpreted as actions using artificial intelligence. Highly dense tactile sensors measure the pressure in each point of fingers and palm to give a full understanding of objects in touch. Light, sound and tactile feedback gives you comforting support whatever you do.

We interpret the hand movements creating an action list. And you can use this list for automated documentation of manual labor, for increasing security, for cooperation with robots, and also for E-Learning. Mimetik offers a technology platform that tackles distinct issues in manufacturing firms with prototype solutions. We are currently focusing on three different use cases, for each of which we offer a special data glove.

Our Portfolio

Mimetik core tech
training efficiency gains of manual labor

Efficiency Glove

The EfficiencyGlove© is the base product within the Mimetik product family. The integrated core technology allows access to all process data involving human operations through comprehensive time and motion studies. With our plug & play solution, production managers can easily balance station workloads, identify bottlenecks, and reveal optimisation potential – leading to efficiency gains of more than 20% in manual work. It is easy to set up and integrate into existing data acquisition software.

Added localization sensors
reduction of maintenance downtime

Quality Glove

In addition to the core technology, this Mimetik product features high-precision localization sensors. With this addon, the QualityGlove© can detect an employee’s position and movement over time. This provides useful information regarding highly frequented paths and areas covered as part of the work routine. Therefore, it is predestined for any maintenance applications and can reduce machine downtime caused by manual work by considerable 25%.

Added altitude + weight sensors
reduction of workplace accidents and long-term health issues

Safety Glove

Topping up our core technology with altitude and weight sensors, the SafetyGlove© can record and identify ergonomic positions when lifting an object. This makes it possible to tackle false posture that can cause serious and long-term health damage. By issuing tangible improvement instructions for each individual and also with regard to workplace design, this solution leads to a substantial reduction of occupational accidents and a safer and more healthy work environment.
