Full-text available
As a result of the difficulties brought by COVID-19 and its associated lockdowns, many individuals and companies have turned to robots in order to overcome the challenges of the pandemic. Compared with traditional human labor, robotic and autonomous systems have advantages such as an intrinsic immunity to the virus and an inability for human-robot-...

Digital twin (DT) and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies have grown rapidly in recent years and are considered by both academia and industry to be key enablers for Industry 4.0. As a digital replica of a physical entity, the basis of DT is the infrastructure and data, the core is the algorithm and model, and the application is the software a...

A sensor reduction and tuning strategy is proposed for a Kalman filter-based sensor fusion system to achieve similar sensing performance using only a subset of sensors. The method is presented and validated in the context of the EXO-UL8 exoskeleton. This device is a powered, redundant, dual-arm, upper-limb exoskeleton system with (7+1) degrees-of-f...
Chapter
This chapter provides an overview of the research and development of upper limb exoskeleton systems. These systems can be broadly categorized into assistive devices meant to replace impaired human functioning, rehabilitation devices aimed at recovering functionality lost due to injury or medical conditions, augmentation exoskeletons designed to enh...
Chapter
This chapter aims to provide an overview of the research and development of modern active hand exoskeleton systems. These systems are characterized by the ability to actively control one or more degrees of freedom (DOF) of at least one finger with respect to a mechanical ground attached to the hand or forearm. Hand exoskeletons are frequently compl...
Article
This paper presents an image-based regulation control of nonholonomic mobile robots using a single onboard camera. State-of-the-art approaches depend on pose reconstruction or decomposition of homography for the position-based visual servo. A new image-based switching control scheme with a hierarchical structure is developed. The proposed approach...
Chapter
A human-in-the-loop system has long been recognized as a complex system due to the difficulty in modeling and predicting the environment’s (human’s) fluctuation. The question becomes even complicated when the human in the loop suffers from a stroke, which disables one’s upper limb with weakness, abnormal synergy, and/or spasticity. From different p...

In physical rehabilitation, exoskeleton assistive devices aim to restore lost motor functions of a patient suffering from neuromuscular or musculoskeletal disorders. These assistive devices are classified as operating in one of two modes: (1) passive mode, in which the exoskeleton passively moves its joints through the full range (or a subset) of t...
Conference Paper
Due to high degree of freedom and different mechanism foci, hand and arm exoskeletons are usually developed separately and seldom combined together. Hand exoskeletons are typically more complex mechanisms than arm or leg exoskeletons due to the numerous degrees of freedom encapsulated in the hand and the small anatomical structure involved. This st...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In a dual arm therapeutic regime aiming to rehabilitate motor functions post stroke, both the affected arm (paretic) and the unaffected (non-paretic) arm are involved. In this context, the leading idea is that motor functions of the affected arm during a reaching task may be improved if the unaffected arm has already reached the target. As part of...

Due to high degree of freedom and different mechanism foci, hand and arm exoskeletons are usually developed separately and seldom combined together. Hand ex-oskeletons are typically more complex mechanisms than arm or leg exoskeletons due to the numerous degrees of freedom encapsulated in the hand and the small anatomical structure involved. This s...
Article
This paper reports the first theoretical modeling study of air-breathing microfluidic fuel cells (MFCs). The model is based on a semi-empirical Graetz–Damköhler (Gz–Da) analysis. The theoretical formulas derived clearly demonstrate the effects of the MFC design and operational parameters on the electrochemical activities of MFCs in quantitative det...
