2018 7th IEEE International Conference on Biomedical Robotics and Biomechatronics (Biorob)

The RAS/EMBS International Conference on Biomedical Robotics and Biomechatronics - BioRob 2018 - is a joint effort of the two IEEE Societies of Robotics and Automation - RAS - and Engineering in Medicine and Biology - EMBS.BioRob covers both theoretical and experimental challenges posed by the application of robotics and mechatronics in medicine and biology. The primary focus of Biorobotics is to analyze biological systems from a "biomechatronic" point of view, trying to understand the scientific and engineering principles underlying their extraordinary performance. This profound understanding of how biological systems work, behave and interact can be used for two main objectives: to guide the design and fabrication of novel, high performance bio-inspired machines and systems for many different applications; and to develop novel nano, micro-, macro- devices that can act upon, substitute parts of, and assist human beings in prevention, diagnosis, surgery, prosthetics, rehabilitation.

Bioinspired grasp primitives for a dexterous artificial hand to catch and lift a cylinder

John Lavery; Ben Kent; Erik D. Engeberg 2011 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Biomimetics, 2011

Joint motion profiles from nine human test subjects were recorded while catching and lifting a cylinder. Significant differences between the two tasks presented themselves consistently across all test subjects. In general, initial rapid hyperextensions were observed while catching the cylinder versus simply picking it up. Slightly larger ranges of abduction were also seen for the catch, but, as expected for ...

  • Kinematics and Trajectory Planning

    This chapter addresses human hand anatomy, the problems of forward kinematics, inverse kinematics, differential kinematics, and trajectory planning. The joints of thumb and four fingers contain two saddle‐shaped articulating surfaces between two bones and is4 classified as saddle joints. Index, middle, ring, and little fingers include three revolute joints in order to do the angular movements. Kinematics is restricted to a natural geometrical description of motion, including positions, orientations, and their derivatives. A general systematic method needs to be derived to define the relative position and orientation of two consecutive links to calculate the forward kinematic equations for a serial n‐link revolute‐joint manipulator. The maximum joint angles of each joint depend on different individuals. It is necessary to know the desired paths before the robotic hand is controlled to execute a specific hand motion task.

  • Dynamic Models

    This chapter discusses how electric motors are used to actuate the joints of small size manipulators, like robotic hand. It is necessary to have a mathematical model that describes the dynamic behavior of robotic hand for the purpose of designing the control system. The chapter discusses the relation related to the coupling between the motor gear and loaded joint gear in the absence of slipping. The dynamic equations of hand motion are derived via Lagrangian approach using kinetic energy and potential energy. Diagonal matrices represent armature inductances, armature resistances, and motor back e.m.f. constants. A diagonal positive definite matrix and sign (q) is a vector whose components are given by the sign functions of the single joint velocities.

  • Fusion of Hard and Soft Control Strategies II

    This chapter presents the fusion, hybrid or integration of hard control (HC) and soft control (SC) strategies to enhance the performance in terms of controlling a robotic or prosthetic hand that could not be achieved by using either HC or SC strategy. The chapter also introduces fuzzy‐logic‐based proportional‐derivative (PD) fusion control strategy, presenting genetic‐algorithm‐based proportional integral‐derivative (PID) fusion control strategy. Case III covers the value 100 in lower bound, but both total error and convergent speed are even worse than PID alone, suggesting that GA performs better for a large range. The tracking errors for both PD and FL controllers are convergent to zero within 5 seconds without overshooting, but PID controller takes longer with overshooting and oscillation.

  • Comprehensive Coding System for Clinical Terms

    This chapter contains sections titled: * Introduction * SNOMED CT * SNOMED CT Database Browsers * Discussion * Conclusion * Bibliography

  • Conclusions and Future Work

    This chapter presents the conclusions described in the book related to the fusion of hard control strategies such as proportional integral‐derivative (PID), optimal, adaptive, and soft control strategies such as adaptive neuro‐fuzzy inference system (ANFIS), genetic algorithms (GA), particle swarm optimization (PSO), for a robotic or prosthetic hand. Chapter 2 of the book addressed the forward kinematics, inverse kinematics, and differential kinematics models of a serial n revolute‐joint planar two‐link thumb, and three‐link index finger. The fingertip (end‐effector) positions of each finger were derived by forward kinematics. Chapter 3 of the book described the dynamic equations of hand motion successfully derived via Lagrangian approach for two‐link thumb and three‐link fingers using the mathematical model of the actuator by using direct current (DC) motor and mechanical gears.
