—This paper proposes a biomechatronic approach to the design of an anthropomorphic artificial hand able to mimic the natural motion of the human fingers. The hand is conceived to be applied to prosthetics as well as to humanoid and personal robotics; hence, anthropomorphism is a fundamental requirement to be addressed both in the physical aspect and in the(More)
This paper addresses the field of humanoid and personal robotics—its objectives, motivations , and technical problems. The approach described in the paper is based on the analysis of humanoid and personal robots as an evolution from industrial to advanced and service robotics driven by the need for helpful machines, as well as a synthesis of the dream of(More)
OBJECTIVES The principle underlying this project is that, despite nervous reorganization following upper limb amputation, original pathways and CNS relays partially maintain their function and can be exploited for interfacing prostheses. Aim of this study is to evaluate a novel peripheral intraneural multielectrode for multi-movement prosthesis control and(More)
Hand loss is a highly disabling event that markedly affects the quality of life. To achieve a close to natural replacement for the lost hand, the user should be provided with the rich sensations that we naturally perceive when grasping or manipulating an object. Ideal bidirectional hand prostheses should involve both a reliable decoding of the user's(More)
— In this work the problem of orientation tracking based on inertial/magnetic sensors is restated in geometric terms, in particular an intrinsic observer, i.e. an observer whose performance does not depend on a specific choice of coordinates, is derived on the Lie group of rigid body rotations SO(3). Measurements of the gravitational and geomagnetic fields(More)
