Dynamics and Control of Wearable Exoskeletons and Prostheses

Research Description

We are developing novel energy-efficient mechatronic designs and model-based control algorithms for lower-limb and upper-limb exoskeletons and prostheses using integrated biomechatronic system models. Automated environment recognition systems and onboard sensors inform the dynamic controllers, which optimize the assistive loads and electrical energy regeneration capabilities of these wearable biomechatronic devices for rehabiliation and manufacturing applications.
