“Asmoa” means “Intention” in the Basque dialect. This project is about intention prediction for exoskeleton control. The challenge is to detect the intention of movement of a user of exoskeletons for load handling, to optimize the exoskeleton control following the user’s intended movement, and to evaluate with an experimental campaign the effect of the intelligent controller on the user’s movement and performance. We develop our prediction and control method for an upper-body active exoskeleton. The project is a collaboration with an industrial company, Safran, and a SME, Kompai Robotics.
