Preliminary development of an environment recognition system conducive to support the exoskeleton's automated locomotion. Suitable terrain sensing and recognition is needed to identify planes, steps or slopes, etc. Effective identification instructs the locomotion mode and transition the exoskeleton should fulfill.
Successful candidates are expected to work in a team to design the overall exoskeleton. Students interested in this project should have a combination of strong practical prototyping skills, 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
