Article
Full-text available
The paper describes the design and working of a motorsport data acquisition, logging, live telemetry, and display system developed using the Controller Area Network (CAN) communication protocol as the backbone of the arrangement. The main controller of the CAN system is the myRIO which was programmed using LabVIEW. A Formula One car hosts over a hu...

Active ankle foot orthosis is used as a supporting aid to restore the complex ankle foot movements of the subjects with neurological or muscular pathologies.This paper aims at designing an embedded control system using fuzzy logic for an active ankle foot orthosis, which can be used for hemiparesis subjects as a rehabilitation aid. The designed ort...

The complex ankle foot movements of patients suffering from muscular and neurological abnormalities are supported and restored by an active ankle foot orthosis (AFO). Foot drop is a symptom in which the muscles around the ankle become weak due to the paralysis of the neural system. Patients with foot drop show abnormal gait patterns, which can redu...

The Ankle Foot Orthosis (AFO) is as an assistive device used in foot disability for the gait improvement. The objective of this paper is to design a neuro fuzzy controller for an AFO. Adaptive Neuro Fuzzy Inference System (ANFIS) is selected after a detailed study of existing neuro-fuzzy architectures. Data of gait pattern are collected with the he...

The paper deals with engineering an electric wheelchair from a common wheelchair and the development of a BCI system (Brain-Computer Interface) between the electric wheelchair and the human brain. The target populations for the mind controlled wheelchair are the patients who are paralyzed below the neck and are unable to use conventional wheelchair...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The main objective is to design a Fuzzy logic based controller to control the actuation mechanism of an Ankle Foot Orthosis (AFO). AFO is an orthotic device intended to assist or to restore the movements of the ankle foot complex in the foot impairments. Foot impairments are due to stroke causing hemiparesis. The prototyping of fuzzy based controll...
Article
This paper presents the control design of an ankle foot orthosis for the disabled gait. Ankle foot orthosis is an orthotic device intended to assist or to restore the motions of the ankle foot complex. It uses an actuator to assist the ankle movement as required, during the swing phase of the leg in each gait cycle. The controllers used in the conv...

Active ankle foot orthosis is used to support or restore the complex ankle foot movements of the subjects with neurological or muscular pathologies. Neurological impairments are due to stroke, polio, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injuries, and cerebral palsy. This paper aims at designing an embedded system for active ankle foot orthosis, which ca...
Article
The Ankle Foot Orthosis (AFO) is an orthotic device intended to assist or to restore the movements of the ankle foot complex in the case of pathological gait. Active AFO consists of sensor, controller, and actuator. The controller used in the conventional AFO to control the actuator does not use the property of synchronization of the feet. This cha...

This paper presents the control design of an ankle foot orthosis for the drop foot gait. In this project a fuzzy controller is developed to control the symmetry in gait. The gait patterns are monitored through National Instrument’s data acquisition system which is interfaced with a gyro sensor. A self-adaptive fuzzy logic controller along with a fu...

The Ankle Foot Orthosis (AFO) is as an assistive device used in foot disability for the gait improvement. The main objective is to design a Neuro-fuzzy controller for an AFO. Design Neuro Fuzzy Inference System in LabVIEW. Data of gait pattern are collected with the help of force sensors. This data is fed to the NFIS and a fuzzy rule base is created to complete the neuro-fuzzy system which is used to control the gait pattern.
