OBJECTIVE To assess the usefulness, compatibility, and long-term operability of a microelectrode array into the median nerve of the left arm of a healthy volunteer, including perception of feedback stimulation and operation of an instrumented prosthetic hand. SETTING The study was carried out from March 14 through June 18, 2002, in England and the United(More)
—The synapsing variable-length crossover (SVLC) algorithm provides a biologically inspired method for performing meaningful crossover between variable-length genomes. In addition to providing a rationale for variable-length crossover, it also provides a genotypic similarity metric for variable-length genomes, enabling standard niche formation techniques to(More)
Recursive Learning Control (RLC) has the potential to significantly reduce the tracking error in many repetitive trajectory applications. This paper presents an application of RLC to a soil testing load frame where non-adaptive techniques struggle with the highly nonlinear nature of soil. The main purpose of the controller is to apply a sinusoidal force(More)
This paper describes an investigation into the use of implant technology in forming a bi-directional link between the human nervous system and a computer. The microelectrode implant and the required neurosurgery are described in detail. Various application studies are described, including interaction with an articulated robot hand, a group of autonomous(More)
