Intro to Wearable Robotics

Part 3 - Exoarm to Computer Interface

IEEE UNSW Student Branch

Luke Wicent Sy

Project overview

  1. CAD Design of an Exo Arm (link)
  2. Microcontroller Programming to control an Exo Arm (link)
  3. Exo Arm to Computer Interface (link)

Why interface with computer?

  1. Gamified rehabilitation
  2. Performance augmentation
  3. Remote tele-operation

What we will do today?

  1. Load orientation estimation firmware
  2. Make an arm model in our computer
  3. [Challenge] Control the exoarm from your computer

Groupings

  • Separate into four groups.
  • The workshop is ideally done individual or by pairs.
    • If stuck, consult your group.
    • If still stuck, consult the workshop assistants!
  • DO IT YOURSELF. DON’T PEAK AT THE SOLUTION.
