In this paper, different from other researches, we developed an admittance control model with EMG signal to control our developed power assistance device for human elbow motion support. A two degree of freedom power assistance device is developed, and a simple but effective EMG signal processing method is proposed. Further, an admittance control model using(More)
— We intend to show the basis of a general legged locomotion controller with the ability to integrate both posture and rhythmic motion controls. We respectively used leg loading and unloading for the phase transitions from swing-to-stance and stance-to-swing, and showed the following in our previous 3D model simulation study: (a) as a result of the phase(More)
Up to now, many robotic aids for the elderly's walking support or the disabled's walking rehabilitation are reported, and numerous electrical-powered wheelchairs are developed. In this paper, a new kind of omnidirectional wheelchair typed robot is developed. The robot not only can accomplish the walking support or walking rehabilitation as the elderly or(More)
Recently, a lot of BMIs (Brain-Machine Interfaces) using EEG (electroencephalogram) signals are developed to control external devices such as prostheses and robots. In this paper, in order to develop a new BMI for rehabilitation and/or power support, four different tasks corresponding to different brain excitation degrees are designed. Their EEG spectra are(More)
In this study, we intend to show the basis of a general legged locomotion controller with the ability to integrate both posture and rhythmic motion controls and shift continuously from one control method to the other according to the walking speed. The rhythmic motion of each leg in the sagittal plane is generated by a single leg controller which controls(More)
