State-of-the-art Upper Extremity Rehabilitation Robot.

This project strives to develop an inertia compensator for the InMotion2 planar robot for use in studies with human interaction. The InMotion2 robot from MIT’s Newman Lab is a 2-degree of freedom robotic arm used for studies of human interaction. A human subject grips a handle at the end-effector and is able to push the […]

Non-Contact Estimation of Limb Impedance

For robotic systems to interact with or learn from the actions of surrounding humans, it is important that they can accurately interpret the intention driving human motor actions. Making such interpretations, however, requires the ability to perceive the relevant feature(s) from the observed human behavior. With visual sensing alone, robots are typically limited to perceiving […]
