Modeling and analysis of a high-displacement pneumatic artificial muscle with integrated sensing
(Frontiers Media S.A., 2019-01-07)
We present a high-displacement pneumatic artificial muscle made of textiles or plastics that can include integrated electronics to sense its pressure and displacement. Compared to traditional pneumatic muscle actuators ...
A Novel Method and Exoskeletons for Whole-Arm Gravity Compensation
We present a new method for providing gravity compensation to a human or robot arm. This method allows the arm to be supported in any orientation, and also allows for the support of a load held in the hand. We accomplish ...
An elbow exoskeleton for haptic feedback made with a direct drive hobby motor
A direct drive motor is one of the simplest mechanisms that can be used to move a mechanical joint. In particular, a brushless direct current (BLDC) motor with no gearing produces a low parasitic torque due to its ...
Motion Inference Using Sparse Inertial Sensors, Self-Supervised Learning, and a New Dataset of Unscripted Human Motion
In recent years, wearable sensors have become common, with possible applications in biomechanical monitoring, sports and fitness training, rehabilitation, assistive devices, or human-computer interaction. Our goal was to ...
