    Assistive robotics is an increasingly popular research field, which has led to a large number of commercial and noncommercial systems aimed at assisting physically impaired or elderly users in the activities of daily living. In this article, we propose five criteria based on robotic arm usage scenarios and surveys with which assistive robotic arms can be classified. Different possibilities and imp... View full abstract»

    The loss of hand function, due to amputation or neurological injuries, severely debilitates physically and psychosocially. The most evident and critical impairment after upper limb amputation or neurological injury like brachial plexus or spinal cord injury is the loss of prehension, i.e., the ability to perform those movements in which an object is seized and held partially or wholly within the c...

    Predicting the future has long been regarded as a powerful means to improvement and success. The ability to make accurate and timely predictions enhances our ability to control our situation and our environment. Assistive robotics is one prominent area in which foresight of this kind can bring improved quality of life. In this article, we present a new approach to acquiring and maintaining predict...

    Independent mobility is central to being able to perform activities of daily living by oneself. However, power wheelchairs are not an option for many people who, due to severe motor disabilities, are unable to use conventional controls. For some of these people, noninvasive brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) offer a promising solution to this interaction problem. View full abstract»

    As the world's elderly population continues to grow, so does the number of individuals diagnosed with cognitive impairments. It is estimated that 115 million people will have age-related memory loss by 2050 [1]. The number of older adults who have difficulties performing self-care and independent-living activities increases significantly with the prevalence of cognitive impairment. This is especia...

    This tutorial explicitly states the semantics of all coordinate-invariant properties and operations, and, more importantly, all the choices that are made in coordinate representations of these geometric relations. This results in a set of concrete suggestions for standardizing terminology and notation, allowing programmers to write fully unambiguous software interfaces, including automatic checks ...

    South Korea is a mostly homogeneous nation with a population of 50 million, situated in a geopolitically sensitive area with China to the west, Japan to the east, and North Korea (and beyond, Russia) to the north. Although technically occupying a peninsula, with North Korea cutting off all land access to the main Eurasian continent. For the past 60 years, South Korea has effectively been an island...
