We present a relatively cheap solution for telepresence and robot teleoperation, to assist with explosive ordnancedisposal, using a legged manipulator (i.e., a legged quadruped robot, embeddedwith a manipulator and rgb-d sensing).
We propose a novel system integration for the non-trivial problem of quadruped manipulator whole-body control.
Pose tracking of tensegrity robots, which are composed of rigid compressive elements (rods) and flexible tensile elements (e.g., cables), has been recognized as a grand challenge in this domain.
This work aims to address what has been recognized as a grand challenge in this domain, i.e., the pose tracking of tensegrity robots through a markerless, vision-based method, as well as novel, onboard sensors that can measure the length of the robot s cables.
The present study investigated the effect of a passive lower-limb exoskeleton on lumbar load and verified the effectiveness of biomechanical analysis forevaluating the physical burden while wearing the exoskeleton.
Twelve healthy male participants performed an assembly task under three conditions: standingand high and low sitting while wearing the exoskeleton.
