Safety is one of the most important issues in walking support robots. We have proposed a walking support robot equipped with velocity-based mechanical safety devices. The safety device is attached to each drive-shaft of the robot. If the safety device detects an unexpected high angular velocity of the drive-shaft, the safety device stops the robot. In this(More)
Safety is one of the most important issues in walking support robots. We have proposed a walking support robot equipped with velocity and torque-based mechanical safety devices. The velocity-based safety device and the torque-based safety device are attached to each drive-shaft of the robot. If the velocity-based safety device detects an unexpected high(More)
