Combining adaptive locomotion primitives

Adaptive locomotion primitives

Algorithms that made it possible for a robot to be capable of learning a movement that successfully accomplished the intended goals for a certain instance of a task were an important milestone in robotics and reinforcement learning. However, such capability alone is not enough in order to answer to most challenges when learning motor skills if the learned movement is not expandable to other instances of the task.

Study and evaluation of the adaptation walker-disease for the user

This project is based on the study and evaluation of the adaptation of the walker to the user’s disease. Thus, the goals are:
 
-       Validation of the walker as an instrument of functional compensation;
-       Collection of clinical evidences that lead to the use of the walker, by compiling the evidences that allowed the prescription of the walker;

Biped locomotion control through a biologically-inspired closed-loop controller

The aim of this project is to study the applicability of a bio-inspired controller for rehabilitation, either for assistance and/or therapy purposes.

Online control of a mobility assistance Smart walker

In this project, we aim to develop a smart walker:
- to improve the stability of assisted gait of people with physical disabilities, and the elderly.
- to provide for safety, a natural manoeuvrability and should offer a certain degree of intelligence in assistance and judgement.
- transparent control of the robot by the user when walking.

Generating Timed Trajectories for Autonomous Robot

Autonomous mobile robot control is essential whenever the mobile robots are used in environments, especially when these are not designed for the robots. This is a real constraint in
any situation in which interactions between robots and humans is a required condition, as in hospitals or other public spaces. Autonomous mobile robots working in hazardous or remote
environments constitute another type of possible applications where its control is required. It is also very important when there is incomplete information about the environment and dy-
