Wearable Dexterous Robotic Manipulators

 

                       

 

2014. This R & D project is the creation and development of a set of “Wearable Dexterous Robotic Manipulators” that are based on our previous adaptive tech R & D work for the disabled. This project and our prior prototypes are based on augmentation of human capabilities. In this case augmentation that increases capabilities beyond normal human levels as opposed to restoring lost movements as in the issues of paralysis. The arms are designed to operate with a degree of useful precision by using a combination of our previously developed technologies. Specifically these include our version of “Facial Feature Control”, “Neck Movement Control”, “Artificial Touch” and “Status Indication through Direct Focus on the Retina”. It can use 3 or 4 facial feature movements to utilize 40 different basic functions which is expandable to hundreds, while relating it’s status through a visual indicator. In practical terms this design is easy to control and allows multitasking.

This prototype addresses three issues;

1-      the necessity of multitasking with multiple limbs in vocational environments.

2-      helping workers in dangerous situations as this device can endure contact with material that human hands cannot.

3-      the necessity of having easy to control, dexterous arm(s) in absence of a limb.

 

Many times our own work has been limited by not having at least three arms. So we will be able to put this device to good use.

 

Our work in adaptive tech R & D and other subjects is world renowned and awarded, however so far we have had to fund it ourselves.
