An integrated approach for the identification of daily hand movements with a view to control prosthetic members using the raw EMG signal with the use of Empirical Mode Decomposition (EMD).
Model predictive quadrotor control: attitude, altitude and position experimental studies
This article addresses the control problem of an unmanned quadrotor in an indoor environment where there is lack of absolute localization data. Based on an attached Inertia Measurement Unit, a sona…
On Trajectory Tracking Model Predictive Control of an Unmanned Quadrotor Helicopter Subject to Aerodynamic Disturbances
In this article a model predictive control (MPC) strategy for the trajectory tracking of an unmanned quadrotor is presented. The quadrotor's dynamics are modeled using a hybrid systems approach and,…

A simulation study demonstrates that the closed-loop system with the proposed time delay controller outperforms the open-loop, input shaped system and the standard linear quadratic regulator when the impulse is applied at an inexact instance.
Development and Control of a Multifunctional Prosthetic Hand with Shape Memory Alloy Actuators
Non-conventional actuation technology, based on shape memory alloys, is employed for the development of an innovative low-cost five-fingered prosthetic hand which will enable upper limb amputees to carry out their basic daily tasks more comfortably.
