  • A function description for the human upper limb pointing movements performance

    The human motor system is mechanically complex and need to be described by using a large number of degrees of freedom. The controlled operation of such a system requires a reduction of mechanical redundancy. The coordination and synergies among the muscles and joints can be used for the reduction. In this paper, synergy is discussed through the analysis and comparison of human upper-limb pointing movements. All movements were recorded by a Vicon 3D motion analysis system. The synergy in the pointing movement of upper-limb was found among the different joint angles. A function method is used to describe the pointing performance. The different joint angles can be fitted by the same function curve. The pointing movement performance can be determined by the fitting parameter vector and the start and end states. Based on this result, a typical motion pattern can be described by a smaller set of variables.

  • Lightweight hand and arm tracking for mobile augmented reality

    We present a mobile tracking system for hands and arms capable of detecting the full range of motion, suitable for use in mobile augmented reality systems. The hand position is tracked using orientation sensors attached to the upper and forearms. Using two or more orientation sensors, the natural movements of the human arm can be captured relative to the user's torso. This tracking technique allows unique interaction in a mobile augmented reality environment performing tasks such as selection and moving of 3D objects. Further, we have applied a non-linear scaling technique allowing out of arms reach interaction area.

  • Dynamic transition motion from ladder climbing to brachiation for a multi-locomotion robot

    This paper describes a dynamic transition motion from ladder climbing to brachiation for a multi-locomotion robot (MLR). In our previous works, the static transition motion from ladder climbing to barchiation has been developed. However, the motion is based on stable static model. It is difficult to realize the flexible and fast movement. To solve these problems, a new dynamic transition motion is proposed to simplify the action steps and increase the motion speed. The gravity is used to adjust the speed of turning body motion when the left hand and left foot are considered, and a pendulum model is used in the motion planning for the MLR to catch the second horizontal bar. The motion step is simplified and the motion speed is increased significantly by using the proposed method. The simulation result is realized by using the open dynamic engine (ODE) software.

  • Velocity analysis of tri-axial differential pipeline robot when getting across elbow

    A wheel-type pipeline robot applying a tri-axial differential mechanism is presented in this paper, which is targeted for moving inside the elbow while the ratios of angular velocities of the driving wheels depend on their movement trajectories. The main features of the robot are illustrated and some details about the mechanism are provided. To confirm the differential effectiveness of the robot, a geometry model of the robot in the elbow is established, which makes it possible to calculate the wheel centers and the contact points between the wheels and the inner surface of the pipeline. On the basis of the geometry model, the velocity ratios of the driving wheels can be computed. Several virtual experiments are performed, and the differential function of the robot is validated through the comparisons of the results between the theoretical analysis and the experiments.

Through the analysis of pressure and pump power transformer and flow system, as well as combinations of different modes of pump efficiency, pointing out the maximum extent possible to optimize the method of network characteristics and ways to save energy consumption of the water distribution system.

  • Experimental robotic manipulator surface touchdown analysis and results

    A key problem for robotics tasks involving contact with a surface is the initial touchdown or impact stage. This paper experimentally evaluates a touchdown algorithm designed to allow the successful transition between free- space motion and post-contact force control. Experimental analysis of the basic touchdown provides insight into the proposed solution. A "bandwidth boost" is applied to the force controller after impact and combined with a "force boost" in the force reference command. The results show that the new touchdown method can increase the speed at which a manipulator can maintain contact with the surface after initial touchdown.

  • Virtual alteration of body material by periodic vibrotactile feedback

    Characters with body materials that are different from that of humans, such as metal robots or rubber people, frequently appear in movies and comics. While the abilities of their synthetic bodies can be easily observed from their actions, their somatic sensations are more difficult to appreciat e. Our aim in this work is to simulate the alteration of the material of the human body by means of vibrotactile feedback. The feedback represents the properties of the materials and is periodically applied to the elbow joint in synchrony with the elbow angle. This simulated sensation of having a different body material gives us the feeling of those characters. This technique can also be applied to improve maneuverability in the teleoperation of master-slave systems because it gives the operator a robot-like sensation.

  • Research on An Method of Muscle Force Prediction Based on Dynamic Fuzzy Neural Network

    Muscle force is the energy source of human body motion. It is not only the basic data basis for the rehabilitation evaluation of human motor function, but also can provide a theoretical basis for the control of rehabilitation robots and the design of bionic joints. However, muscle force cannot be measured directly. Therefore, this paper combines the surface electromyogram(sEMG) with the joint angle, and propose a method of muscle force prediction based on dynamic fuzzy neural network (D-FNN). Firstly, subjects were required to perform flexion and extension of elbow movement in uniform speed and the time domain characteristics were extracted from the sEMG of subjects' biceps brachii. The elbow angle was collected at the same time. Next, the contraction force of the biceps brachii was obtained based on the OpenSim platform which can used to simulate human motion. Then, based on D-FNN, the mapping from sEMG and elbow angle to muscle force were obtained. Finally, the effectiveness of the method was verified by experiments.

  • Measuring just noticeable differences for haptic force feedback: implications for rehabilitation

    Describes preliminary work in the use of a virtual environment to derive just noticeable differences (JNDs) for force. Specifically, we look for thresholds of force sensitivity so that we may ultimately construct therapeutic force feedback distortions that stay below these thresholds. Initially, we have concentrated on JNDs as they are applied to the index finger; preliminary data in healthy individuals shows an average JND of approximately 100%. More significantly, the data indicate that visual feedback distortions in a virtual environment can be created to encourage increased force productions by up to 100%, and that this can be done without a patient's awareness.
