Using computer simulation, the theoretical feasibility of functional electrical stimulation (FES) assisted standing up is demonstrated using a closed-loop self-adaptive fuzzy logic controller based on reinforcement machine learning (FLC-RL). The control goal was to minimize upper limb forces and the terminal velocity of the knee joint. The reinforcement learning (RL) technique was extended to multicontroller problems in continuous state and action spaces. The validated algorithms were used to… CONTINUE READING
