A heuristic fuzzy logic approach to EMG pattern recognition for multifunctional prosthesis control.
In-keyboard isometric joysticks can give better pcrforrnancc than mice for mixed typing/pointing tasks. The continuing challcngc is to improve such devices to the point that they arc preferable even for pure pointing tasks. Previous work has improved joystick performance by considering user perception and motor skills. This paper considers the dynamics of the pointing operation. A dynamic transfer function for an isometric joystick is described which amplifies changes in the applied force to increase rcsponsivcncss without loss of control. User tests show a 7.8k3.5°/0 pcrfonnancc improvement over a standard non-dynamic joystick. This feature has been incorporated into the TrackPoint 111from IBM.
