Sarcos Research Corporation, and the Center for Engineering Design at the University of Utah, have long been interested in both the fundamental and the applied aspects of robots and other computationally driven machines. We have produced substantial numbers of systems that function as products for commercial applications, and as advanced research tools specifically designed for experimental use. This paper reviews various aspects of the design and control of a number of robot-like machines… 

Mobile Robots: Motor Challenges and Materials Solutions

TLDR
Materials that change dimension in response to applied voltage, so-called artificial muscle technologies, outperform muscle in most respects and so provide a promising means of improving robots.

Lower-Limb Movement Assistance through Wearable Robots: State of the Art and Challenges

TLDR
The state-of-the-art of the main research advances in lower-limbs human assistance is presented and the seamless integration of wearable robots in ambient intelligence spaces appears as one of the major challenges for ubiquitous environments and ambient assisted living.

Towards intelligent lower limb wearable robots: Challenges and perspectives - State of the art

TLDR
A state-of-the-art of the main research advances in lower limbs actuated orthosis/wearable robots in the literature is presented and the challenges not yet solved such as issues related to portability, energy consumption, social constraints and high costs of theses devices are discussed.

Experimental Evaluation of Feedback Modalities for Five Teleoperation Tasks

TLDR
Extensive experimental analysis showed that mapping of operator hand motion and force feedback to a convenient tool point reduces the operator mental load and task time due to highly coordinated motion.

Human-aided robotic grasping

TLDR
A combined approach of real time remote vision-based teleoperation and autonomy for a human-aided robotic grasping to provide a user-friendly system with simple operation command to grasp different objects successfully.

State of the Art and Future Directions for Lower Limb Robotic Exoskeletons

TLDR
Current lower limb robotic exoskeletons are described, with specific regard to common trends in the field, and a number of emerging technologies could deliver substantial advantages to existing and future exoskeleton designs.

A Physiologist's Perspective on Robotic Exoskeletons for Human Locomotion

TLDR
A reciprocal potential exists for robotic exoskeletons to advance the authors' understanding of human locomotor physiology and the design of future devices could be improved by exploiting biomechanical principles of animal locomotion.

Motion capture from inertial sensing for untethered humanoid teleoperation

We describe the design of a modular system for untethered real-time kinematic motion capture using sensors with inertial measuring units (IMU). Our system is comprised of a set of small and

TLDR
This framework suggested that speed rate (or mechanical motor constant) was the best benchmark of robotic motor performance, and implications for design choices such as continuously variable transmissions are discussed.

Intuitive interaction for robotic grasping

TLDR
This work develops effective and user-friendly approaches which combine the real time remote vision-based teleoperation and autonomous grasping, which can reduce grasping time and provide more natural grasping poses.
