We developed a real-time controller for a 2 degree-of-freedom robotic system using xPC Target. This system was used to investigate how different methods of performance error feedback can lead to faster and more complete motor learning in individuals asked to compensate for a novel visuo-motor transformation (a 30 degree rotation). Four groups of normal(More)
We studied reach adaptation to a 30° visuomotor rotation to determine whether augmented error feedback can promote faster and more complete motor learning. Four groups of healthy adults reached with their unseen arm to visual targets surrounding a central starting point. A manipulandum tracked hand motion and projected a cursor onto a display immediately(More)

Previous studies on reaching movements have shown that people can adapt to distortions that are either visuomotor (e.g., prism glasses) or mechanical (e.g., force fields) through repetitive training. Other work has shown that these two types of adaptation may share similar neural resources. One effective test of this sharing hypothesis would be to show that(More)
This paper presents the application of stratified motion planning to the robotic manipulation problem. Although the manipulation problem is a subclass of applications for stratified motion planning, the method present is general in that it is formulation in a manner independent of the object surface geometry or the kinematics of the “fingers” of the robot.(More)
cation of this previous work is legged locomotion over smooth terrain where the switching dynamics occur when various feet make and break contact with the ground. Another application is robotic manipulation of smooth objects where the switching dynamics occur when the robotic fingers make and break contact with the manipulated object. This paper presents an(More)
This paper presents an extension of stratified motion planning results to the case where the base manifold upon which the motion planning occurs is not smooth. Robotic applications of this work include motion planning for legged robots over known, nonsmooth terrain and manipulation of nonsmooth objects with multiple robotic manipulators.
