A Comparison of Day-Long Recording Stability and Muscle Force Prediction between BSN-Based Mechanomyography and Electromyography

Constantinos Gavriel; A. Aldo Faisal 2014 11th International Conference on Wearable and Implantable Body Sensor Networks, 2014

Day-long continuous monitoring requires stable sensors that can minimise the effects of drift and maintain high accuracy and precision over time. We have recently shown that our inertial motion tracking system can capture stable kinematic data, calibrated against ground-truth over a long period of time. However, for many clinical and daily life activities, it is also essential to monitor the ...

  • A Simple, Adaptive Locomotion Toy-System

    In order to successfully transfer biological principles to engineering problems, it is important to study the fundamental properties of biological systems. The goal is to arrive with useful abstractions that are (1) implementable, (2) testable by experiments and sample implementations, (3) retain the, for an engineering point of view, essential good properties of the biological systems. At BIRG, we are interested in the fundamentals of locomotion control and their possible applications to robotics. In this article, we present a simple, adaptive locomotion toy system that is of oscillatory nature. It is composed of two parts: an adaptive controller based on a nonlinear oscillator, and a mechanical system made of two blocks attached by an active and a passive spring. The controller is designed to be robust against perturbations, and to adapt its locomotion control to changing body kinematics or added external load. The tools to develop such a toy-system are a 2-scale nonlinear dynamical system, namely a Hopf oscillator with adaptive frequency, and a understanding of synchronization behavior of oscillators. A further central ingredient that will be discussed is the concept of asymmetric friction forces. We show that the system possesses several critical parameters. It is illustrated that the bifurcations connected with some of these parameters can be identified as non-smooth phase transitions and power law behavior. Links to biology and possible applications to robotics are discussed.

  • Glossary

    This book presents the configuration space method for computer-aided design of mechanisms with changing part contacts. Configuration space is a complete and compact geometric representation of part motions and part interactions that supports the core mechanism design tasks of analysis, synthesis, and tolerancing. It is the first general algorithmic treatment of the kinematics of higher pairs with changing contacts. It will help designers detect and correct design flaws and unexpected kinematic behaviors, as demonstrated in the book's four case studies taken from industry. After presenting the configuration space framework and algorithms for mechanism kinematics, the authors describe algorithms for kinematic analysis, tolerancing, and synthesis based on configuration spaces. The case studies follow, illustrating the application of the configuration space method to the analysis and design of automotive, micro-mechanical, and optical mechanisms. Appendixes offer a catalog of higher-pair mechanisms and a description of HIPAIR, an open source C++ mechanical design system that implements some of the configuration space methods described in the book, including configuration space visualization and kinematic simulation. HIPAIR comes with an interactive graphical user interface and many sample mechanism input files. The Configuration Space Method for Kinematic Design of Mechanisms will be a valuable resource for students, researchers, and engineers in mechanical engineering, computer science, and robotics.
