    This paper proposes a human machine interface for assistive exoskeleton based on face analysis. The 4 DoF assistive robotic system designed is dedicated to people suffering from myopathy and aims to compensate for the loss of mobility in the upper limb. The proposed interface is able to convert user head gesture and mouth expression into a suitable control command. Moreover, we propose a visual co... View full abstract»

    This paper describes a redundant robot arm that is capable of learning to reach for targets in space while avoiding obstacles in a self-organized fashion. Self-generated movement commands that activate correlated visual, spatial and motor information are used to learn forward and inverse kinematic control models while moving in obstacle free space using the direction-to-rotation transform (DIRECT)...

  • Flagellated bacterial nanorobots for medical interventions in the human body

    We show that a combination of various types of nanorobots will prove to be more important as we attend to enhance targeting in the smallest blood vessels found in the human microvasculature. As such, various interdependent concepts for the implementation of these different types of medical bio-nanorobots including nanorobots propelled in the microvasculature by flagellated bacteria to target deep ...

  • Wave variables based bilateral teleoperation of an active catheter

    Publication Year: 2008, Page(s):27 - 32
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (541 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper, we develop a teleoperation framework to perform master-slave control of an active catheter instrumented with Shape Memory Alloy (SMA) actuators. The catheter is also instrumented with a 5-DOF magnetic sensor which provides feedback on the position of the distal end of the catheter while strain gauges on the catheter tip reflect the forces. SMAs demonstrate a hysteretic, non-linear a... View full abstract»
