Abstract: A basic idea of the mechatronic design is to decompose a mechatronic system into subsystems in order to make the complex structure manageable. This paper introduces a platform, named RABBIT, which helps the designer in the development of mechatronic systems during the simulation and implementation stages. At these stages, software- and(More)
Rapid prototyping of complex systems embedded in even more complex environments raise the need of a multi-level design approach. Our example is taken from mechatronic design of the automotive industry and illustrate the rapid prototyping procedure of real-time critical control laws. Our approach is based on an object oriented structuring allowing not only(More)
Modern components and materials in combination with recent pattern recognition methods for electromyographic (EMG) signals enable creating multi-functional arm prostheses with intelligent and user-friendly control [1]. While the usage of pattern recognition of features extracted from EMG signals has proven highly efficient in transradial prostheses [2,3],(More)
