Project Summary

Intelligent Wearable Robotics
Development of intelligent wearable robotic devices

  • to augment individual skills
  • to improve workflow
  • improve task performance
  • explore HRI in the realm of physical interactions
  • use as a body-mounted two-hand haptic interface for VR

Research Goals

  • Develop series of wearable robotic arms each more capable than the previous
  • Test candidate designs and revise specifications for each next generation design
  • Support experimentation with arm commanding via NLP, gesterual input, gaze tracking, haptic demonstration and other modalities
