OBJECTIVE To develop a model for human performance in combined translational and rotational movements based on Fitts' law. BACKGROUND Fitts' law has been successfully applied to translational movements in the past, providing generalization beyond a specific task as well as performance predictions. For movements involving both translations and rotations,(More)
New mobile robotic devices are conquering homes. From automatic shades to motorized vacuum cleaning units, advanced technologies are progressively being introduced into real domestic home environments. Technology is no longer being introduced to simply serve information or environmental control. Dynamic and mobile elements are being introduced to perform(More)
— An approach for adaptive shared control of an assistive manipulator is presented. A set of distributed collision and proximity sensors is used to aid in limiting collisions during direct control by the disabled user. Artificial neural networks adapt the use of the proximity sensors online, which limits movements in the direction of an obstacle before a(More)
