By analyzing the biomechanics of human gait, design locomotion modes/ states and control for an exoskeleton. Control strategy from high level gait control to low level motor control needs to be coordinated towards the overall motion control optimization.
Successful candidates are expected to work in a team to design an exoskeleton. Students interested in this project should have a combination of strong practical skills, either electronics prototyping skills (embedded programming, circuit design etc.) or mechanical prototyping skills (CAD, digital fabrication etc.) and adequate mathematical background to understand and implement signal processing techniques.
1. Students will enhance their knowledge of robotics
2. Hands-on experience for prototyping design
3. Collaboration with interdisciplinary team of system designers
