In telemanipulation systems, assistance through variable position/velocity mapping or virtual fixture can improve manipulation capability and dexterity [3, 5, 6, 7, 8]. Conventionally, such assistance is based on the sensory data of the environment and without knowing user’s motion intention. In this paper, user’s motion intention is combined(More)
This paper focuses on kinematic analysis and evaluation of wheelchair mounted robotic arms (WMRA) [3]. It addresses the kinematics of the WMRA with respect to its ability to reach common positions while performing activities of daily living (ADL). A procedure is developed for the kinematic analysis and evaluation of a WMRA. In an effort to evaluate two(More)
The wheelchair-mounted robotic arm (WMRA) is a mobile manipulator that consists of a 7-DoF robotic arm and a 2-DoF power wheelchair platform. Previous works combined mobility and manipulation control using weighted optimization for dual-trajectory tracking [7]. In this work, we present an image-based visual servoing (IBVS) approach with scale-invariant(More)
A wheelchair-mounted robotic arm (WMRA) was designed and built to meet the needs of mobility-impaired persons with limitations of upper extremities, and to exceed the capabilities of current devices of this type. The mechanical design incorporates DC servo drive, with actuator hardware at each individual joint, allowing reconfigurable link lengths. It has(More)
Wheelchair-bound persons with upper limb motion limitations can utilize a wheelchair-mounted robotic arm (WMRA) to perform activities of daily living (ADL) tasks. In this paper, an optimized control of our 9-DoF system, consisting of a 7-DoF robotic arm and a 2-DoF power wheelchair, is achieved. For effective ADL task execution, positioning the end-effector(More)
In this paper, we present a novel vision based interface for selecting an object using a Brain Computer Interface (BCI), and grasping it using a robotic arm mounted to a powered wheelchair. As issuing commands through BCI is slow, this system was designed to allow a user to perform a complete task using the robotic system via the BCI issuing as few commands(More)
A wheelchair-mounted robotic arm (WMRA) system was designed and built to meet the needs of mobility-impaired persons with limitations of upper extremities, and to exceed the capabilities of current devices of this type. The control of this 9-DoF system expands on the conventional control methods and combines the 7-DoF robotic arm control with the 2-DoF(More)
A wheelchair-mounted robotic arm (WMRA) system was designed and built to meet the needs of mobility-impaired persons with limitations of upper extremities, and to exceed the capabilities of current devices of this type. The control of this 9-DoF system combines the 7-DoF robotic arm control with the 2-DoF power wheelchair control. The 3-degrees of(More)
In this paper we present a novel concept of shared autonomous and teleoperation control of a remote manipulator with a laser-based assistance in a hard real-time environment for people with disabilities to perform activities of daily living (ADL). The laser pointer enables the user to make high-level decisions, such as target object selection, and it(More)
A wheelchair-mounted robotic arm (WMRA) system was designed and built to meet the needs of mobilityimpaired persons with limitations of upper extremities, and to exceed the capabilities of current devices of this type. The control of this 9-degree-of-freedom system expands upon conventional control methods and combines the 7-DoF robotic arm control with the(More)
