To my family and friends. iii Acknowledgment I would like to express my sincerest admiration and deepest gratitude to Professors Vijay Kumar and Ananthasuresh as advisors, researchers and friends. Their unrelenting pursuit of excellence has been a source of inspiration and guidance. They always found time to patiently listen to the many half-baked ideas and(More)
Selecting a model topology that realistically predicts biomechanical function remains an unsolved problem. Today's dominant modeling approach is to replicate experimental input/output data by performing parameter estimation on an assumed topology. In contrast, we propose that modeling some complex biomechanical systems requires the explicit and simultaneous(More)
Security of SCADA (supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) has become a challenging issue today because of its connectivity with the outside world and remote access to the system. One major challenge in the SCADA systems is securing the data over the communication channel. PKI (public key infrastructure) is a well known framework for securing the(More)
In systems and computational biology, much effort is devoted to functional identification of systems and networks at the molecular-or cellular scale. However, similarly important networks exist at anatomical scales such as the tendon network of human fingers: the complex array of collagen fibers that transmits and distributes muscle forces to finger joints.(More)
Patients suffering from loss of hand functions caused by stroke and other spinal cord injuries have driven a surge in the development of wearable assistive devices in recent years. In this paper, we present a system made up of a low-profile, optimally designed finger exoskeleton continuously controlled by a user's surface electromyographic (sEMG) signals.(More)
