  • A Hand Gesture Recognition Strategy Based on Virtual-Dimension Increase of EMG

    Cyborg and Bionic Systems, American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 5巻, 出版日 2024年01月29日, 査読付, The electromyography(EMG) signal is the biocurrent associated with muscle contraction and can be used as the input signal to a myoelectric intelligent bionic hand to control different gestures of the hand. Increasing the number of myoelectric-signal channels can yield richer information of motion intention and improve the accuracy of gesture recognition. However, as the number of acquisition channels increases, its effect on the improvement of the accuracy of gesture recognition gradually diminishes, resulting in the improvement of the control effect reaching a plateau. To address these problems, this paper presents a proposed method to improve gesture recognition accuracy by virtually increasing the number of EMG signal channels. This method is able to improve the recognition accuracy of various gestures by virtually increasing the number of EMG signal channels and enriching the motion intention information extracted from data collected from a certain number of physical channels, ultimately providing a solution to the issue of the recognition accuracy plateau caused by saturation of information from physical recordings. Meanwhile, based on the idea of the filtered feature selection method, a quantitative measure of sample sets (separability of feature vectors [SFV]) derived from the divergence and correlation of the extracted features is introduced. The SFV value can predict the classification effect before performing the classification, and the effectiveness of the virtual-dimension increase strategy is verified from the perspective of feature set differentiability change. Compared to the statistical motion intention recognition success rate, SFV is a more representative and faster measure of classification effectiveness and is also suitable for small sample sets.

  • Coevolution of Myoelectric Hand Control under the Tactile Interaction among Fingers and Objects
    Yuki Kuroda; Yusuke Yamanoi; Shunta Togo; Yinlai Jiang; Hiroshi Yokoi
    Cyborg and Bionic Systems, American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2022巻, 出版日 2022年11月, 査読付, The usability of a prosthetic hand differs significantly from that of a real hand. Moreover, the complexity of manipulation increases as the number of degrees of freedom to be controlled increases, making manipulation with biological signals extremely difficult. To overcome this problem, users need to select a grasping posture that is adaptive to the object and a stable grasping method that prevents the object from falling. In previous studies, these have been left to the operating skills of the user, which is extremely difficult to achieve. In this study, we demonstrate how stable and adaptive grasping can be achieved according to the object regardless of the user’s operation technique. The required grasping technique is achieved by determining the correlation between the motor output and each sensor through the interaction between the prosthetic hand and the surrounding stimuli, such as myoelectricity, sense of touch, and grasping objects. The agents of the 16-DOF robot hand were trained with the myoelectric signals of six participants, including one child with a congenital forearm deficiency. Consequently, each agent could open and close the hand in response to the myoelectric stimuli and could accomplish the object pickup task. For the tasks, the agents successfully identified grasping patterns suitable for practical and stable positioning of the objects. In addition, the agents were able to pick up the object in a similar posture regardless of the participant, suggesting that the hand was optimized by evolutionary computation to a posture that prevents the object from being dropped.

    ISR 2021 - 2021 IEEE International Conference on Intelligence and Safety for Robotics, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 掲載ページ 111-116, 出版日 2021年03月04日, Deep learning gesture recognition based on surface electromyography (sEMG) is playing an increasingly important role in prosthetic hand control. In order to improve the recognition rate of multi-modal EMG signals, this paper proposes a feature model construction and optimization method based on multi-channel EMG signal amplification unit. And through CNN and LSTM (CNN+LSTM) deep learning model, the recognition rate and acquisition window are trained. Use the established time series surface EMG image to construct a feature model to solve the recognition problem of multi-modal surface EMG signal. The experimental results show that under the same network structure, the EMG signal processed by Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) as the characteristic value has better performance.

    ISR 2021 - 2021 IEEE International Conference on Intelligence and Safety for Robotics, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 掲載ページ 229-232, 出版日 2021年03月04日, In order to improve the perception ability of the walking-aid robot and make it more accurately understand the user's training status, propose an analytical method of human lower limbs dynamic model based on 3D vision for the walking-aid robot. First., we create a point cloud set of the field of view, use the advantages of 3D vision to quickly segment the leg and background point cloud data, and optimize the lower limb point cloud data through down-sampling and statistical filtering algorithms to provide accuracy and real-time guarantee for analyzing the lower limbs posture. The oriented bounding box of the local point cloud based on principal component analysis(PCA) is used to analyze the posture of the lower limbs, which is used as the angle feature of the lower limbs dynamic model. Combine the angle feature with the design constraints to obtain the dynamic model of walking lower limbs. Finally, the effectiveness of the algorithm is verified by design experiments.

  • Survey on Main Drive Methods Used in Humanoid Robotic Upper Limb
    Yiwei Wang; Wenyang Li; Shunta Togo; Hiroshi Yokoi; Yinlai Jiang
    Cyborg and Bionic Systems, American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2021巻, 出版日 2021年, 査読付, Humanoid robotic upper limbs including the robotic hand and robotic arm are widely studied as the important parts of a humanoid robot. A robotic upper limb with light weight and high output can perform more tasks. The drive system is one of the main factors affecting the weight and output of the robotic upper limb, and therefore, the main purpose of this study is to compare and analyze the effects of the different drive methods on the overall structure. In this paper, we first introduce the advantages and disadvantages of the main drive methods such as tendon, gear, link, fluid (hydraulic and pneumatic), belt, chain, and screw drives. The design of the drive system is an essential factor to allow the humanoid robotic upper limb to exhibit the structural features and functions of the human upper limb. Therefore, the specific applications of each drive method on the humanoid robotic limbs are illustrated and briefly analyzed. Meanwhile, we compared the differences in the weight and payload (or grasping force) of the robotic hands and robotic arms with different drive methods. The results showed that the tendon drive system is easier to achieve light weight due to its simple structure, while the gear drive system can achieve a larger torque ratio, which results in a larger output torque. Further, the weight of the actuator accounts for a larger proportion of the total weight, and a reasonable external placement of the actuator is also beneficial to achieve light weight.

  • Study on classification effect of sEMG signals in different vibration environments based on LDA algorithm
    Yanchao Wang; Ye Tian; Jinying Zhu; Haotian She; Hiroshi Yokoi; Yinlai Jiang; Qiang Huang
    Sensors, MDPI AG, 21巻, 18号, 掲載ページ 6234-6234, 出版日 2021年, 査読付, Myoelectric prosthesis has become an important aid to disabled people. Although it can help people to recover to a nearly normal life, whether they can adapt to severe working conditions is a subject that is yet to be studied. Generally speaking, the working environment is dominated by vibration. This paper takes the gripping action as its research object, and focuses on the identification of grasping intentions under different vibration frequencies in different working conditions. In this way, the possibility of the disabled people who wear myoelectric prosthesis to work in various vibration environment is studied. In this paper, an experimental test platform capable of simulating 0–50 Hz vibration was established, and the Surface Electromyography (sEMG) signals of the human arm in the open and grasping states were obtained through the MP160 physiological record analysis system. Considering the reliability of human intention recognition and the rapidity of algorithm processing, six different time-domain features and the Linear Discriminant Analysis (LDA) classifier were selected as the sEMG signal feature extraction and recognition algorithms in this paper. When two kinds of features, Zero Crossing (ZC) and Root Mean Square (RMS), were used as input, the accuracy of LDA algorithm can reach 96.9%. When three features, RMS, Minimum Value (MIN), and Variance (VAR), were used as inputs, the accuracy of the LDA algorithm can reach 98.0%. When the six features were used as inputs, the accuracy of the LDA algorithm reached 98.4%. In the analysis of different vibration frequencies, it was found that when the vibration frequency reached 20 Hz, the average accuracy of the LDA algorithm in recognizing actions was low, while at 0 Hz, 40 Hz and 50 Hz, the average accuracy was relatively high. This is of great significance in guiding disabled people to work in a vibration environment in the future.

  • An Online sEMG Motion Classification Framework for Tele-operating the Robotic Hand
    Haosi Zheng; Hiroshi Yokoi; Yinlai Jiang; Feng Duan
    Chinese Control Conference, CCC, IEEE Computer Society, 2020-巻, 掲載ページ 6491-6496, 出版日 2020年07月01日, Seamless communication between human intended motions and robot actions is essential for Human-Robot Interaction (HRI). When tele-operating a robotic hand, it is a natural and effective way via surface electromyography (sEMG) signals. This paper proposes an online sEMG motion classification framework for tele-operating the robotic hand. The whole framework consists of offline training and online recognition phases. In the offline training phase, three features were selected from four candidates and Artificial Neural Network (ANN) won the election among three classifiers. Inthe online recognition phase, two-thresholds data segmentation and majority voting techniques were designed, and three subjects participated in online experiment to verify the feasibility of this framework. The online experimental results show that the average total accuracy is 73.56% and the average vote accuracy is 91.67%. The outcomes of this study have shown the promising potential of sEMG-based HRI.

  • Transfer Method of Multiple Welfare-Robots Based on Minimal Fuzzy System
    Donghui Zhao; Junyou Yang; Dianchun Bai; Yinlai Jiang
    Jiqiren/Robot, Chinese Academy of Sciences, 41巻, 6号, 掲載ページ 813-822, 出版日 2019年11月01日, Aiming at the auxiliary transfer behavior of rising, standing and excreting in daily life of people with mobility inconvenience, a smart house for the aged and the disabled based on 5 self-developed welfare-robots and sensor network is established. The system provides a service platform for transfer behavior, and a transfer reasoning algorithm and a transfer planning method satisfying safety and comfort requirements are also proposed. Firstly, the function of multiple welfare-robots and the limitation of daily autonomous behavior are discussed. A transfer reasoning algorithm based on reduced rough set is proposed for user groups with different mobility. The corresponding transfer scheme is formulated when user groups are uncertain about their mobility and the patient information is incomplete. Then, rising and standing transfer planning methods are proposed to ensure the safety and comfort of users' behavior. Finally, the transfer method is reasoned and some transfer experiments are completed. Experiments show that the suitable transfer method can be reasoned for users with different mobility by the proposed transfer reasoning algorithm. The plantar pressure of the affected side and the healthy side can be reduced by 39.9% and 19.5% respectively by standing transfer, and the pressure of the back and buttocks can be reduced by 5.05% and 3.95% respectively by rising transfer. The transfer reasoning system based on multiple welfare-robots can be applied to families, nursing homes and rehabilitation centers.

  • Development of EMG Prosthetic Hand for Infant with Lightness and High Pinch Force
    Taichi Hirai; Shunta Togo; Yinlai Jiang; Hiroshi Yokoi
    Proceedings of IEEE Workshop on Advanced Robotics and its Social Impacts, ARSO, IEEE Computer Society, 2019-巻, 掲載ページ 360-364, 出版日 2019年10月01日, This paper presents an EMG prosthetic hand for infants with compatibly lightness and high pinch power. Lightweight is an important point in the design of a prosthetic hand for infants. However, it is difficult to reduce the weight while maintaining the output because of the trade-off relationship between lightweight and pinch force. In this paper, we adopt the wire-driven mechanism to balance lightweight and pinch force. This mechanism pulls the wire via the friction between the wire and the pulley, which increases exponentially with the winding angle. Therefore, it is possible to fix the wire to the small-diameter motor pulley to obtain a high torque from a small motor. Since the stable winding depends on static friction in this mechanism, two kinds of hands with different wire tension maintaining mechanisms, palm-arrangement type and back-arrangement type, were manufactured. We compared the performance of the two hands and the back-arrangement type outperformed the palm-arrangement type in pinch force.

    Jianing Xue; Yikang Yang; Jiawei Chen; Yinlai Jiang; Chi Zhu; Hiroshi Yokoi; Feng Duan
    Proceedings of IEEE Workshop on Advanced Robotics and its Social Impacts, ARSO, IEEE Computer Society, 2019-巻, 掲載ページ 387-392, 出版日 2019年10月01日, Stroke patients need rehabilitation to recover their abilities of moving, and the underwater rehabilitation can reduce the possibility of secondary injury during the rehabilitation process. Collecting surface electromyography (sEMG) signals underwater can provide better rehabilitation guidance to the medical doctors. However, the current sEMG electrodes cannot be applied to collect sEMG signals underwater. To solve this problem, we propose a soft sEMG electrode based on conductive silicon. The time domain and frequency domain features of sEMG signals are extracted. The sEMG signals are identified by Back Propagation Neural Network (BPNN) under the dry, simulated sweating and water environments respectively. Under the dry environment, there is no significant difference in the recognition accuracy of sEMG signals between the conductive silicon electrode and the Ag/AgCl electrode. Under the water environment, the recognition accuracy of sEMG signals acquired by the conductive silicon electrode is 95.47% by employing time domain features.

    Donghui Zhao; Junyou Yang; Dianchun Bai; Yinlai Jiang
    Yi Qi Yi Biao Xue Bao/Chinese Journal of Scientific Instrument, Science Press, 40巻, 4号, 掲載ページ 255-264, 出版日 2019年04月01日, Aiming to accurately identify the fall and drag-and-drop abnormal gait during assisted walking of the patients with lower limb dysfunction, a non-contact abnormal gait recognition method based on node-iteration type fuzzy Petri Net is proposed from the universality and convenience of various user groups. Firstly, the structure of the rehabilitation training robot is discussed, and the behavior characteristics of the abnormal gait of fall and drag-and-drop often occurring in the course of assistant walking are described. A multi-channel proximity sensor array is developed to detect gait information in real time. Integrating the intention vector of walking direction, the gait deviation, frequency and body incline angle are taken as the input parameters of the detection system. Based on the fuzzy membership function, the network ignition mechanism is generated, and the node-iteration type fuzzy Petri Net is established to recognize the abnormal gait. Finally, an abnormal gait recognition method based on node-iteration fuzzy type Petri net is proposed, and abnormal gait operator reasoning experiment and multi-mode walking fall detection experiment of walking rehabilitation training robot are carried out. The experiment results show that the algorithm can accurately recognize the abnormal gait of different walking habit groups using walking rehabilitation robot, improve the safety and comfort of the assisted walking of the users, and the recognition rate of abnormal gait reaches to 91.2%. This proposed method can be used in the daily living and rehabilitation training of the users with lower limb dysfunction using similar walking aids.

  • One-channel surface electromyography decomposition for muscle force estimation
    Wentao Sun; Jinying Zhu; Yinlai Jiang; Hiroshi Yokoi; Qiang Huang
    Frontiers in Neurorobotics, Frontiers Media S.A., 12巻, MAY号, 出版日 2018年05月04日, 査読付, Estimating muscle force by surface electromyography (sEMG) is a non-invasive and flexible way to diagnose biomechanical diseases and control assistive devices such as prosthetic hands. To estimate muscle force using sEMG, a supervised method is commonly adopted. This requires simultaneous recording of sEMG signals and muscle force measured by additional devices to tune the variables involved. However, recording the muscle force of the lost limb of an amputee is challenging, and the supervised method has limitations in this regard. Although the unsupervised method does not require muscle force recording, it suffers from low accuracy due to a lack of reference data. To achieve accurate and easy estimation of muscle force by the unsupervised method, we propose a decomposition of one-channel sEMG signals into constituent motor unit action potentials (MUAPs) in two steps: (1) learning an orthogonal basis of sEMG signals through reconstruction independent component analysis
    (2) extracting spike-likeMUAPs fromthe basis vectors. Nine healthy subjects were recruited to evaluate the accuracy of the proposed approach in estimating muscle force of the biceps brachii. The results demonstrated that the proposed approach based on decomposed MUAPs explains more than 80% of the muscle force variability recorded at an arbitrary force level, while the conventional amplitude-based approach explains only 62.3% of this variability. With the proposed approach, we were also able to achieve grip force control of a prosthetic hand, which is one of the most important clinical applications of the unsupervised method. Experiments on two trans-radial amputees indicated that the proposed approach improves the performance of the prosthetic hand in grasping everyday objects.

  • sEMG Sensor Using Polypyrrole-Coated Nonwoven Fabric Sheet for Practical Control of Prosthetic Hand
    Yinlai Jiang; Masami Togane; Baoliang Lu; Hiroshi Yokoi
    FRONTIERS IN NEUROSCIENCE, FRONTIERS MEDIA SA, 11巻, 33号, 出版日 2017年02月, 査読付, One of the greatest challenges of using a myoelectric prosthetic hand in daily life is to conveniently measure stable myoelectric signals. This study proposes a novel surface electromyography (sEMG) sensor using polypyrrole-coated nonwoven fabric sheet as electrodes (PPy electrodes) to allow people with disabilities to control prosthetic limbs. The PPy electrodes are sewn on an elastic band to guarantee close contact with the skin and thus reduce the contact electrical impedance between the electrodes and the skin. The sensor is highly customizable to fit the size and the shape of the stump so that people with disabilities can attach the sensor by themselves. The performance of the proposed sensor was investigated experimentally by comparing measurements of Ag/AgCl electrodes with electrolytic gel and the sEMG from the same muscle fibers. The high correlation coefficient (0.87) between the two types of sensors suggests the effectiveness of the proposed sensor. Another experiment of sEMG pattern recognition to control myoelectric prosthetic hands showed that the PPy electrodes are as effective as Ag/AgCl electrodes for measuring sEMG signals for practical myoelectric control. We also investigated the relation between the myoelectric signals' signal-to-noise ratio and the source impedances by simultaneously measuring the source impedances and the myoelectric signals with a switching circuit. The results showed that differences in both the norm and the phase of the source impedance greatly affect the common mode noise in the signal.

  • Development of a search method of electrode patterns for use in electrical stimulation using multichannel surface electrodes for upper limb motor function recovery in patients with paralysis
    Misato Kasuya; Soichiro Morishita; Yinlai Jiang; Masao Sugi; Hiroshi Yokoi
    Transactions of Japanese Society for Medical and Biological Engineering, Japan Soc. of Med. Electronics and Biol. Engineering, 55巻, 5号, 掲載ページ 193-204, 出版日 2017年, 査読付, The incidence of limb paralysis due to cerebrovascular disorders is increasing. In the affected patients, returning to normal life is a concern that needs to be addressed. Therefore an effective treatment for recovery of motor function is required. Rehabilitation to encourage patients to perform a variety of exercises is required. One of the effective methods for recovery of motor function is repetitive facilitation of exercises. This method requires that a therapist assists a patient on a one-to-one basis. The lack of qualified personnel to assist individuals and the increased burden on the medical personnel in recent years have made rehabilitation using repetitive facilitation of exercise difficult. Therefore, it is important that we use repetitive facilitation exercises and training equipment in combination to facilitate high-quality rehabilitation for a large number of patients with paralysis. Such training equipment should allow stable performance of a variety of exercises. The purpose of this study was to develop an arm exercise function recovery system based on surface electrical stimulation using multi-channel electrodes for a patient to undergo rehabilitation without assistance at home. As the training equipment, we used functional electrical stimulation (FES) with surface electrodes, which is a non-invasive method. Stimulating a specific muscle is difficult using FES with surface electrodes. Therefore, we traced an electrode pattern including many electrode points to achieve appropriate stimulation. In the case of multichannel surface electrodes, we considered that there should be as many electrode patterns as possible. In this report, we describe an example of the method to determine the electrode pattern that can evoke finger and hand positioning using a multi-channel electrode selector “FES selector device”, by which the electrode pattern can be changed freely. We used the electrode pattern that had the highest estimated joint precision obtained by estimating joint angles using an artificial neural network. We then performed clustering of finger and hand positions based on the electrode pattern. This cluster was then used as the cluster that correlates the actual finger and hand positions with the electrode pattern. We performed clustering of the electrode pattern based on this cluster of finger and hand positions. In addition, we demonstrate in this report an example of searching the electrode pattern by clustering using the FES selector device and an artificial neural network. From this search, we identified the electrode patterns that evoked exercise, and found around 16 to 24 clusters of finger and hand positions. These findings suggest that a variety of exercises can be evoked without assistance. Based on the clustering result, we made a table of the required positions and the corresponding electrode patterns. Using this table, a patient can easily find the pattern appropriate to the desired position.

    Lecture Notes in Computer Science (including subseries Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence and Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics), Springer Verlag, 10462巻, 掲載ページ 206-216, 出版日 2017年, 査読付, This study presents a novel hybrid interface based on both electroencephalography (EEG) and eye movement. The detection of combination EEG with eye movement provides a new means of communication for patients whose muscular damage are unable to communicate. And this method can translate some brain responses into actions. In this paper, based on the motor imagery, event related synchronization/desychronization (ERS/ERD) were tested by using time-frequency spectrum and brain topographic mapping. A features extraction algorithm is proposed based on common spatial pattern (CSP), then the support vector machine (SVM) were carried out to classificate data. An EEG recording device integrated with an eye tracker can be complementary to attain improved performance and a better efficiency. The eye movement signals (via eye tracker of Tobbi) and EEG signals of ERS/ERD are as the input of hybrid BCI system simultaneously while subjects follow movement of the arrows in each direction.

    Yin-lai Jiang; Shintaro Sakoda; Masami Togane; Soichiro Morishita; Hiroshi Yokoi
    WEARABLE SENSORS AND ROBOTS, SPRINGER-VERLAG SINGAPORE PTE LTD, 399巻, 56号, 掲載ページ 105-109, 出版日 2017年, 査読付, A novel sEMG (surface electromyography) sensor using polypyrrole-coated nonwoven fabric sheet as electrodes (PPy-electrode) is proposed for the disabled to control prosthetic limbs in daily life. The PPy-electrodes are sewed on an elastic band to guarantee closely contact to the skin thus to enable stable sEMG measurement with high signal-to-noise ratio. Furthermore, the sensor is highly customizable to fit for the size and the shape of the stump so that the disabled can wear the sensor by themselves. The performance of the proposed sensor is investigated by comparing with Ag/AgCl electrodes with electrolytic gel in an experiment to measure the sEMG from the same muscle fibers. The high correlation coefficient (0.87) between the sEMG measured by the two types of sensors suggests the effectiveness of the proposed sensor. The experiment to control myoelectric prosthetic hands showed that the disabled can use it with one hand to obtain sEMG signals for myoelectric control.

    INTELLIGENT AUTONOMOUS SYSTEMS 14, SPRINGER INTERNATIONAL PUBLISHING AG, 531巻, 掲載ページ 269-282, 出版日 2017年, 査読付, This paper reports on design and development of new cosmetic gloves for Myoelectric Prosthetic Hand which provides a realistic appearance and flexible motion of robot hands. The main design issues are divided into five as followings; appearance, gripping performance, durability, texture, flexibility. The appearance includes the shape, wrinkles, finger mark, nail, and color of the hand; the aim is to make these properties of the prosthetic hand as similar to those of the human hand as possible. The durability is evaluated by adaptabilities for daily living, and flexible materials without prevention from finger motion. Furthermore, the gripping performance is improved by the thickness map of palm which is well fit to the gripping object. The experiment shows the results of the performance test applied to the pick-and-place task by using powered prosthetic hand in order to evaluate total properties of the developed cosmetic gloves.

    INTELLIGENT AUTONOMOUS SYSTEMS 14, SPRINGER INTERNATIONAL PUBLISHING AG, 531巻, 掲載ページ 977-990, 出版日 2017年, 査読付, Restoring the hand functionality of partial amputees requires a myoelectric prosthetic hand, which is a robotic hand controlled by myoelectric signals from the skin surface and has the potential to restore human hand functionality. Most myoelectric hands have been developed for forearm amputees, while those for partial-hand amputees are few in number despite the higher numbers of the latter. Partial-hand amputees have limited hand functionality and cannot grasp andmanipulate various objects in a manner comparable to individuals with a healthy hand; thus, they require a myoelectric hand. In this study, design issues were identified, and three-dimensional computer-aided design was used to propose an integrated skeleton and housing with a supporting socket. A passive thumb mechanism with motion in the remaining part of the hand was developed where the motion control system is based on the amputee's muscles. An amputation system is proposed comprising mixed metacarpal and center-part cuts. A prototype was constructed, and its gripping functionality was evaluated. The results demonstrated an enhanced gripping performance compared to the non-use of prosthetics, which attests to the viability and effectiveness of the system.

    2016 IEEE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ROBOTICS AND BIOMIMETICS (ROBIO), IEEE, in press巻, 掲載ページ 533-538, 出版日 2016年, 査読付, Myoelectric prosthetic hands (MPH) for children are being studied to meet with the need of children with upper limb deficiency. The MPH for children developed in a previous study was lack of stability and mechanical adaptability, and could not be controlled to meet with variable scenes in real life. We therefore developed a steady mechanism to ensure its mechanical stability, and conducted a pick-and-place experiment to verify its practical performance. Furthermore, we designed a bionic mechanism to enhance its mechanical adaptability. The mechanism mimicking human ligaments of tendon sheath makes it possible that the MPH's finger can bend fast with small torque while approaching to the object, and slowly increase grasp torque after touching the object. To enable the mechanism to exert proper range of torque, the dynamics of the mechanism was analyzed. We also conducted a mechanics experiment to verify its mechanical adaptability.

  • fNIRS-based analysis of brain activation with knee extension induced by functional electrical stimulation
    Misato Ohdaira; Tomoko Kamisawa; Soichiro Morishita; Yinlai Jiang; Osamu Yamamura; Hiroshi Yokoi
    WORLD CONGRESS ON MEDICAL PHYSICS AND BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING, 2015, VOLS 1 AND 2, SPRINGER INT PUBLISHING AG, 51巻, 掲載ページ 1137-1141, 出版日 2015年, 査読付, Patients suffering from paralysis due to aging, accidents, or brain injuries are increasing worldwide. Consequently, there is a compelling need for effective methods for the recovery of motor functions. The involvement of brain plasticity has been suggested effective and previous studies have reported that lost motor function and efficiency due to brain damage can be regained by repeatedly increasing and decreasing brain activation. Functional electrical stimulation (FES) has shown its effectiveness in the recovery of motor function. Brain activity usually decreases with the improvement of muscle control by FES. This study investigated the generality of brain responses during rehabilitation with FES in order to elucidate the recovery mechanism. We monitored the brain activity of one healthy subject with fNIRS over a ten-day period (one experiment per day) during which the knee joint movement was induced by FES with different parameters. The subject was seated in the chair of a leg extension device (Fig. 1). The measurement regions covered the primary motor cortex and the somatosensory cortex with transmitters and receivers shown in the right of Fig. 1. Receiver No. 5 in Fig. 1 was positioned on the Cz of the international 10-20 system. We stimulated his left quadriceps muscle with the FES device for 4 seconds. The results suggest that the observed increases and decreases of brain activity induced by FES are common (Fig. 2). It is suggested that increasing and decreasing brain activation was evoked by long-term FES stimulation. Further research is needed to examine greater numbers of healthy subjects and patients suffering from paralysis to determine the optimum stimulation parameters for brain activation to involve brain plasticity.

  • A Highly Usable and Customizable sEMG Sensor for Prosthetic Limb Control Using Polypyrrole-coated Nonwoven Fabric Sheet

  • Structure Design for a Two-DoF Myoelectric Prosthetic Hand to Realize Basic Hand Functions in ADLs
    Suguru Hoshigawa; Yinlai Jiang; Ryu Kato; Soichiro Morishita; Tatsuhiro Nakamura; Yoshiko Yabuki; Hiroshi Yokoi
    2015 37TH ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE OF THE IEEE ENGINEERING IN MEDICINE AND BIOLOGY SOCIETY (EMBC), IEEE, 掲載ページ 4781-4784, 出版日 2015年, 査読付, Prosthetic hands are desired by those who have lost a hand or both hands not only for decoration but also for the functions to help them with their activities of daily living (ADL). Prosthetic robotic hands that are developed to fully realize the function of a human hand are usually too expensive to be economically available, difficult to operate and maintain, or over heavy for longtime wearing. The aim of this study is therefore to develop a simplified prosthetic hand (sim-PH), which is to be controlled by myoelectric signals from the user, to realize the most important grasp motions in ADL by trading off the cost and performance. This paper reports the structure design of a two-DoF sim-PH with two motors to drive the CM joint of the thumb and the interlocked MP joints of the other four fingers. In order to optimize the structure, the model of the sim-PH was proposed based on which 7 sim-PHs with different structural parameters were manufactured and tested in a pick-and-place experiment. Correspondence analysis of the experimental results clarified the relationship between the hand functions and the shapes of fingers.

  • Pinch-Force-Magnification Mechanism of Low Degree of Freedom EMG Prosthetic Hand for Children
    Hesong Ye; Shintaro Sakoda; Yinlai Jiang; Soichiro Morishita; Hiroshi Yokoi
    2015 37TH ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE OF THE IEEE ENGINEERING IN MEDICINE AND BIOLOGY SOCIETY (EMBC), IEEE, 掲載ページ 2466-2469, 出版日 2015年, 査読付, EMG prosthetic hands are being extensively studied for the disabled who need them not only for cosmesis but also for the functions to help them with basic daily activities. However, most EMG prosthetic hands are developed for adults. Since the early use of prosthetic hands is important for the children to accept and adapt to them, we are developing low degrees of freedom (DoF) prosthetic hand that is suitable for children. Due to the limited size of a child's hand, the servo motor which drives the MP joint are small-sized and low-power. Hence, a pinch-force-magnification mechanism is required to improve the pinch force of the EMG prosthetic hand. In this paper we designed a wire-driven mechanism which can magnify pinch force by increasing the length of the MP joint's moment arm. Pinch force measurement experiment validated that the pinch force of the prosthetic hand with the mechanism is more than twice of that of the hand with direct drive.

  • Knowledge Acquisition Method Based on Singular Value Decomposition for Human Motion Analysis
    Yinlai Jiang; Isao Hayashi; Shuoyu Wang
    IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON KNOWLEDGE AND DATA ENGINEERING, IEEE COMPUTER SOC, 26巻, 12号, 掲載ページ 3038-3050, 出版日 2014年12月, 査読付, The knowledge remembered by the human body and reflected by the dexterity of body motion is called embodied knowledge. In this paper, we propose a new method using singular value decomposition for extracting embodied knowledge from the time-series data of the motion. We compose a matrix from the time-series data and use the left singular vectors of the matrix as the patterns of the motion and the singular values as a scalar, by which each corresponding left singular vector affects the matrix. Two experiments were conducted to validate the method. One is a gesture recognition experiment in which we categorize gesture motions by two kinds of models with indexes of similarity and estimation that use left singular vectors. The proposed method obtained a higher correct categorization ratio than principal component analysis (PCA) and correlation efficiency (CE). The other is an ambulation evaluation experiment in which we distinguished the levels of walking disability. The first singular values derived from the walking acceleration were suggested to be a reliable criterion to evaluate walking disability. Finally we discuss the characteristic and significance of the embodied knowledge extraction using the singular value decomposition proposed in this paper.

    ADVANCED ROBOTICS, TAYLOR & FRANCIS LTD, 28巻, 7号, 掲載ページ 479-485, 出版日 2014年04月, 査読付, We are developing a method to recognize a user's directional intention to control an omnidirectional walker (ODW) according to the force interaction between the ODW and the user. Since the characteristics in the force interaction are different among persons especially for those with walking difficulty, a fuzzy learning method is developed in this study to adapt to the individual difference in forearm pressures in order to improve the usability of the method. The experiment results show that fuzzy learning can significantly improve the accuracy of recognition by updating the fuzzy rules according to the characteristics in the force interaction.

    2014 7TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING AND INFORMATICS (BMEI 2014), IEEE, 掲載ページ 562-567, 出版日 2014年, 査読付, There are millions of people who have lost a hand or both hands due to acquired amputation or congenital limb deficiencies. In order to improve their quality of life, electromyogram (EMG) prosthetic hands have been developed to compensate for some daily activities which a cosmetic glove cannot do. However, most EMG prosthetic hands pursue the ability of motions by multi-degree of freedom mechanisms that lead to the shortcomings, such as low intensity, high cost, overweight, and maintenance difficulties at the same time. The development of low-degree of freedom EMG prosthetic hand with high performance is therefore very practical and important. We have developed an EMG prosthetic hand with two motors to realize the rotary motions which account for 85% hand motions in daily life. In this study, we improve the mechanism of the hand with springs to connect the fingers to the palm and artificial nails equipped on top of the fingers. Experimental results show a significant improvement of grasp ability, especially for the tiny objects.

Low-degree freedom EMG prosthetic hand with high performance is therefore desired to solve these problems. The aim of this study is to optimize the low-freedom degree EMG prosthetic hand based on utilization rate of human hand's joints in daily life. We used two motors to realize the rotary motions of CM joints and three kinds of tendon drive mechanism of MP joints. The low-freedom degree EMG prosthetic hand can also complete powerful grasp, precise grasp and lateral grasp which account for 85% hand motions in daily life. Stress analysis is also performed to guarantee safety in daily use. Finally, a pick-and-place experiment was conducted to evaluate the designs.

  • Approximate Model for Interactive-Tendon Driven Mechanism of a Multiple-DoFs Myoelectric Prosthetic Hand
    Tatsuya Seki; Yinlai Jiang; Hiroshi Yokoi
    2014 IEEE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ROBOTICS AND BIOMIMETICS IEEE-ROBIO 2014, IEEE, 掲載ページ 999-1004, 出版日 2014年, 査読付, For practical use, a myoelectric prosthetic hand needs to (1) have a human-like structure, (2) be lightweight, (3) have multiple degrees of freedom (DoFs), and (4) have a high grip force. We have developed a myoelectric prosthetic hand with an interactive-tendon driven mechanism. This paper describes the control method by which the interactive-tendon driven mechanism produces fine and precise actions, as well as an approximate model for the control method. The approximate model was developed based on a geometry model and an equilibrium model for the joint torque. Experimental results show that the joint motions of the actual robotic hand are controlled with errors of between 9 and 15% using the approximate model.

    2014 IEEE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ROBOTICS AND BIOMIMETICS IEEE-ROBIO 2014, IEEE, 掲載ページ 1368-1373, 出版日 2014年, 査読付, Millions of physical disabilities, who have lost a hand or both hands, are in need of prosthetic hands not only for decoration but also for the functions to help them with basic daily activities. Although EMG prosthetic hands are being extensively studied to satisfy this need, most of them are too expensive to be economically available, difficult to operate and maintain by a user him/herself, or over heavy for longtime wearing. The aim of this study is therefore to develop a simplified EMG prosthetic hand (sim-EMGPH) to solve these problems. The sim-EMGPH consists of five parts: a lightweight robotic hand with two motors to realize the most frequent hand activities, a highly stretchable cosmetic glove with little load on the motors, an EMG measurement system including sensors with high wearability made of soft conductive materials, a controller implemented by a 32-bit microprocessor which performs EMG signal processing, pattern recognition, and motor control, and a human-friendly tablet interface for the user to operate the sim-EMGPH by him/herself. We manufactured three sim-EMGPHs for three subjects: two with congenital upper limb deficiency and one with upper limb amputation. Free task experiments showed that the subjects could operate the sim-EMGPHs by themselves to perform basic activities of daily living. Limitations revealed and improvement plans are also discussed in this paper.

  • Trajectory planning to improve the motion performance of a nonholonomic wheeled mobile robot
    Yina Wang; Shuoyu Wang; Yinlai Jiang; Yo Kobayashi; Masakatsu G Fujie
    ICIC express letters, ICIC International, 8巻, 1号, 掲載ページ 295-301, 出版日 2014年, 査読付, Wheeled mobile robots suitable for a variety of applications in a wide field have been studied for many years. In any application, it is necessary to ensure the motion performance of a wheeled mobile robot to guarantee its reliability and security. However, it is difficult to control the motion of wheeled mobile robot because it is a three-dimensional two-input nonholonomic system. In this paper, we address the problem of motion under nonholonomic constraints for the wheeled mobile robot based on the fact that one can direct a nonholonomic automobile to track any path in a wide space by adjusting its velocity and orientation angle on-line. First, an on-line trajectory planning method is proposed to generate the reference velocity and the orientation angle according to the target position and the robot's current position. Then, the feedback velocity and orientation control law are designed based on the dynamic model. Finally, experiments are conducted to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed controller.

    Assistive Technologies: Concepts, Methodologies, Tools, and Applications, IGI Global, 掲載ページ 614-622, 出版日 2013年08月31日, 査読付, With the increase in the percentage of the population defined as elderly, increasing numbers of people suffer from walking disabilities due to illness or accidents. An omni-directional walker (ODW) has been developed that can support people with walking disabilities and allow them to perform indoor walking. The ODW can identify the user's directional intention based on the user's forearm pressures and then supports movement in the intended direction. In this chapter, a reference trajectory is generated based on the intended direction in order to support directed movement. The ODW needs to follow the generated path. However, path tracking errors occur because the center of gravity (COG) of the system shifts and the load changes due to user`s pressure. An adaptive control method is proposed to deal with this issue. The results of simulations indicate that the ODW can accurately follow the user's intended direction by inhibiting the influence of COG shifts and the resulting load change. The proposed scheme is feasible for supporting indoor movement.

  • Motion control of a wheeled mobile robot using digital acceleration control method
    Yina Wang; Shuoyu Wang; Renpeng Tan; Yinlai Jiang
    International Journal of Innovative Computing, Information and Control, 9巻, 1号, 掲載ページ 387-396, 出版日 2013年, Wheeled mobile robots are widely used in industry, ports, and agriculture because they have the necessary loading capability. High performance path-tracking is very important for the mobile robot to precisely follow the designed cargo-carrying path. However, the mobile robot sometimes strays from the predefined path because of center-of-gravity (COG) shifts, load changes caused by loads, and nonlinear friction in the wheels. To address these issues, a dynamics model, which considers COG shifts, load changes, and nonlinear friction, is derived and a digital acceleration control algorithm is proposed for the mobile robot. Simulations are executed using the proposed method and the results demonstrate the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed digital acceleration control method by comparing with a proportional-integral (PI) controller. © 2013 ICIC International.

    ICIC Express Letters, ICIC International, 7巻, 4号, 掲載ページ 1177-1182, 出版日 2013年, 査読付, To make the old people and handicapped people move easily by themselves, an omni-directional walking support machine (WSM) has been developed. In our previous study, to improve the motion performance of the WSM, a digital acceleration control method has been developed to deal with the nonlinear friction. However, the design of the digital acceleration controller requires to know the exact plant parameters of the WSM which are variable due to center of gravity (COG) shift and load changes. The change of the plant parameters affects the motion performance of the digital acceleration control system. Therefore, in this paper, a discrete-time system identification method using recursive least squares (RLS) algorithm is proposed to online identify the WSM's plant parameters for the digital acceleration controller. Simulations are executed and compared with the digital acceleration controller without using RLS algorithm, and the results demonstrate the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed control method.

It is highly desirable that people with the impairment in lower extremities will not become bed-ridden due to their lack of muscle strength to maintain standing posture. Therefore, the authors have been working to develop an intelligent walking support robot that enhances a person's residual functional capacity of lower extremities. This report proposes a motion controller of the intelligent walking support robot that uses digital acceleration control method and confirms the effectiveness of the proposed controller by conducting simulations and experiments. The digital acceleration controller is an effective control method to deal with the effect of nonlinear friction force, and the effectiveness has been verified in the application of motion control on mechatronics system and robot manipulator.

  • Singular Value Analysis through Divided Time-Series Data and its Application to Walking Difficulty Evaluation
    Yinlai Jiang; Isao Hayashi; Shuoyu Wang
    2013 IEEE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON FUZZY SYSTEMS (FUZZ - IEEE 2013), IEEE, 出版日 2013年, 査読付, Motion time-series data observed with various sensing systems are usually analyzed to extract embodied knowledge which is remembered by the human body and reflected by the dexterity in the motion of the body. A method based on singular value analysis through divided time-series data (SVA-DTS) is proposed for extracting features from time-series data. Matrices are composed from the subsets of time-series data and the left singular vectors of the matrices are extracted as the patterns of the motion and the singular values as a scalar, by which the corresponding left singular vectors affects the matrices. The SVA-DTS was applied to a walking difficulty evaluation experiment in which three levels of walking difficulty were simulated by restricting the right knee joint. The accelerations of the middles of the shanks and the back of the waist were measured. Singular values were calculated from the normalized acceleration time-series data with the SVA-DTS. The results showed that the first singular values inferred from the acceleration data of the right shank significantly related to the increase of the restriction to the right knee. The first singular values of the acceleration data of the right shank were suggested to be reliable criteria to evaluate walking difficulty. We visualize the first singular values in a 3D space to provide intuitive information about walking difficulty which can be used as a tool for evaluating walking difficulty.

    2013 INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ADVANCED MECHATRONIC SYSTEMS (ICAMECHS), IEEE, 掲載ページ 384-389, 出版日 2013年, 査読付, For the patients with disabled lower limbs, independent living is difficult to perform and the subsequent lack of physical exercises of their upper body in daily life may cause disuse syndrome. In order to assist the patients to live independently and exercise their upper body in daily life, a human support robot (HSR) is developed, and a novel control method, using the upper body gravity information, is proposed to control the HSR. Based on the information of upper body's center of gravity(COG), the HSR can move according to the user's intention. Under the assistance of the HSR, patients can move to any direction by shifting their upper body. Four force sensors are used to measure the user's weight distribution. Through analyzing the force data from 4 sensors, user's motion intention can be inferred by the proposed intention recognition method, and then it is used to control the HSR to move in the intended velocity. To distinguish the moving intention and the stationary intention, a parameter of intention strength is introduced. At last, an experiment is conducted to verify the performance of control method.

  • Path Tracking Control of an Omni-directional Walker Considering Pressures from a User
    Renpeng Tan; Shuoyu Wang; Yinlai Jiang; Kenji Ishida; Masakatsu G. Fujie
    2013 35TH ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE OF THE IEEE ENGINEERING IN MEDICINE AND BIOLOGY SOCIETY (EMBC), IEEE, 掲載ページ 910-913, 出版日 2013年, 査読付, An omni-directional walker (ODW) is being developed to support the people with walking disabilities to do walking rehabilitation. The training paths, which the user follows in the rehabilitation, are defined by physical therapists and stored in the ODW. In order to obtain a good training effect, the defined training paths need to be performed accurately. However, the ODW deviates from the training path in real rehabilitation, which is caused by the variation of the whole system's parameters due to the force from the user. In this paper, the characteristics of pressures from a user are measured, based on which an adaptive controller is proposed to deal with this problem, and validated in an experiment in which a pseudo handicapped person follows the ODW. The experimental results show that the proposed method can control the ODW to accurately follow the defined path with or without a user.

    2013 IEEE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON MECHATRONICS AND AUTOMATION (ICMA), IEEE, 掲載ページ 761-766, 出版日 2013年, 査読付, An omni-directional walker (ODW) has been developed to support people with walking impairment to do walking training without the presence of a physical therapist. In order to get a good training effect, the ODW needs to precisely follow the training path which is defined by a physical therapist. However, the forces caused by user make the ODW deviate from the training path. In previous studies, an adaptive controller was developed to deal with the pressure leading to the load change and center of gravity shift of the ODW. However, the forces from used consist of both vertical pressure and horizontal thrust. In this paper, an improved model is proposed considering both the pressure and the thrust. Furthermore, an adaptive controller is designed based on the model to improve the path tracking accuracy. The simulation is carried out and the results demonstrate that the proposed method is effectiveness to control the ODW following the training path accurately.

  • Control of an excretion care support robot using digital acceleration control algorithm: path tracking problem in an indoor environment
    Y. Wang; S.Y. Wang; Y. Jiang; R. Tan
    Journal of System Design and Dynamics, The Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers, 7巻, 4号, 掲載ページ 472-487, 出版日 2013年, 査読付, An excretion care support robot, which can reduce the burden of caregivers, has been developed for bedridden persons. Because the excretion care support robot needs to move between its stop position and the caregiving room, which typically requires navigating a narrow and complex route, the robot must precisely follow a predefined path to avoid colliding with obstacles or falling over. However, different floor conditions in different rooms cause a wide range of time-varying friction, which has a serious effect on the motion accuracy of the robot motion system. To address this issue, a digital acceleration controller is designed to enable the excretion care support robot to accurately follow the predefined path. The digital acceleration controller is a special control algorithm that compensates for friction and can be designed without a priori friction information. Simulations and experiments are conducted under different friction conditions and the results demonstrate that this control method can effectively deal with the friction problem. Therefore, the excretion care support robot can safely move to the user's side when needed.

  • Adaptive control method for path tracking of wheeled mobile robot considering parameter changes
    Yina Wang; Shuoyu Wang; Renpeng Tan; Yinlai Jiang
    International Journal of Advanced Mechatronic Systems, 4巻, 1号, 掲載ページ 41-49, 出版日 2012年02月, 査読付, Wheeled mobile robots are widely used in industry, agriculture, and daily human life because they have essential loading capability. Many studies about path-tracking of wheeled mobile robots have been conducted. However, the path-tracking accuracy of these robots is low due to non-linear friction in the wheels, centre-of-gravity shifts and load changes. To address these issues, this paper proposes a motion control method based on the adaptive control law for a wheeled mobile robot. This control method does not need the exact values of plant parameters and can adapt to parameter uncertainties by measuring and adjusting the parameters automatically. Therefore, it is very robust to plant parameter changes caused by non-linear friction, centre-of-gravity shifts, and load changes. To verify the effectiveness of the proposed control method, path-tracking simulations are carried out. The simulation results demonstrate the feasibility and effectiveness of the adaptive control method. Copyright © 2012 Inderscience Enterprises Ltd.

  • Motion Control of a Cushion Robot Considering Load Change and Center of Gravity Shift, Trans.JSME
    Renpeng Tan; Shuoyu Wang; Yinlai Jiang
    Jouranal of System Design and Dynamics, The Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers, Vol.6巻, No.5号, 掲載ページ 740-753, 出版日 2012年, 査読付, A cushion robot with omnidirectional wheels is developed to support in-room movement of the elderly. Because the cushion robot works in a narrow, complex surrounding, it must accurately follow the target direction to avoid repetitively switching drives and to guarantee user safety. However, the user seated on the cushion robot causes a load change and a shift of the center of gravity (COG) of the whole system, which decreases the path tracking precision. To address this issue, an adaptive controller is designed to enable the cushion robot to accurately follow the target direction. The adaptive law can estimate the load and the position of the COG shift on-line, and can control the system so that it accurately follows a reference path generated to reach the target. Simulations and experiments are executed under the no-load condition and the load condition. The simulation and experimental results demonstrate that this control scheme effectively deals with the load change and the COG shift. Therefore, the cushion robot is reliable and convenient for assisting in-room movement of the elderly.

    2012 IEEE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON FUZZY SYSTEMS (FUZZ-IEEE), IEEE, 出版日 2012年, 査読付, Embodied knowledge is the knowledge remembered by the human body and reflected by the dexterity in the motion of the body. In this paper, we propose a new method using singular value decomposition for extracting embodied knowledge from the time-series data of the motion which is measured with various sensors such as an accelerometer, a motion capture system and a force sensor. We compose a matrix from the the time-series data and use the left singular vectors of the matrix as the patterns of the motion and the singular values as a scalar, by which each corresponding left singular vector affects the matrix. Two experiments were conducted to testify the method. One is a gesture recognition experiment in which we categorize gesture motions by two kinds of models with the indexes of similarity and estimation using left singular vectors. The other is an ambulation evaluation experiment in which we distinguished the levels of walking disability using a 3D hyperplane constructed by the singular values. Finally we discuss the characteristic and significance of the embodied knowledge extraction using singular value decomposition proposed in this paper.

We are developing a new method using singular value decomposition for extracting features from the time-series data which is measured with various sensors such as an accelerometer, a motion capture system and a force sensor. In this paper, we apply this method to assess walking difficulty based on three dimensional acceleration data during walking. In order to verify the usefulness of the method, three levels of walking disability in the lower limbs are simulated by constraining the knee joint and ankle joint of the right leg. The accelerations of the middle of shanks and the back of the waist are measured and analyzed after normalization. Features related to walking difficulty are acquired from the time-series acceleration data using singular value decomposition. The results showed that the first singular values inferred from the acceleration data of the right and left shanks significantly related to the increase of the constraint to the joints. The first singular values of the shanks were suggested to be reliable criteria to evaluate walking difficulty. We propose a triangular tool to provide intuitive information extracted from the first singular values to assist the evaluation of the walking difficulty.

Fuzzy rules are extracted from the relationship between forearm pressure and directional intention and an algorithm is proposed for directional intention identification based on distance-type fuzzy reasoning method (DTFRM). Furthermore, fuzzy learning is introduced to adapt to the individual difference in forearm pressures. The experiment results show that the reasoning results of the proposed method are consistent with the intended directions, and that fuzzy learning can reduce the reasoning errors caused by individual difference.

LA has been found through neuroimaging studies and is caused by demyelinization and degenerative changes in arterioles that are related to atherosclerosis (Breteler et al., 1994). Moderate and severe LA have been regarded as surrogate markers for stroke and cognitive impairment. In the present study, the bilateral extent of LA was significantly associated with a decline in VIA. This result demonstrates the clinical importance of mild LA in addition to moderate and severe LA. It also indicates a useful possible application of this method for the early detection of cognitive impairment. © 2011, IGI Global.

The relationship between the forearm pressure and the directional intention was extracted as fuzzy rules and an algorithm was proposed for directional intention identification based on distance-type fuzzy reasoning method. We conducted a path tracking experiment with the proposed method. The results show that the algorithm is applicable to control the ODW in walking support. © 2011 Inderscience Enterprises Ltd.

  • Acquisition of embodied knowledge on gesture motion by singular value decomposition
    Isao Hayashi; Yinlai Jiang; Shuoyu Wang
    Journal of Advanced Computational Intelligence and Intelligent Informatics, Fuji Technology Press, 15巻, 8号, 掲載ページ 1011-1018, 出版日 2011年, 査読付, Communication is classified in terms of verbal and nonverbal information. We discuss an acquisition method of knowledge from nonverbal information. In particular, a gesture is an efficient form of nonverbal communication as well as in verbal ways, and we formulate here a method that measures similarity and estimation between gestures. A gesture includes human embodied knowledge, and therefore the visible bodily actions can communicate particular messages. However, we have infinite patterns for gesture, determined by personality. Recently, the singular spectrum analysis method is utilized as an attractive method. In this paper, we propose a new method for acquiring embodied knowledge from time-series data on gestures using singular value decomposition. The motion behavior is categorized into several clusters with similarity and estimation between interval time-series data. We discuss the usefulness of the proposed method using an example of gesture motion.

    バイオメディカル・ファジィ・システム学会大会講演論文集, バイオメディカル・ファジィ・システム学会, 23巻, 掲載ページ 313-316, 出版日 2010年, An omni-directional walker, which is able to realize diverse motion groups, has been developed for walking rehabilitation. In a previous study, an adaptive control algorithm was developed to deal with the center of gravity shift and the load changes caused by the users. However, the control parameters in the nonlinear adaptive control law were manually adjusted, which led to lower accuracy. In this paper, a neural network for automatically adjustment of the adaptive control parameters is proposed. According to the rehabilitation program designed by the physical therapists, we simulate the walker's movement along a linear path. The simulation results verify the effectiveness of the parameter optimization using neural network.

    バイオメディカル・ファジィ・システム学会大会講演論文集, バイオメディカル・ファジィ・システム学会, 23巻, 掲載ページ 279-282, 出版日 2010年, Walking rehabilitation machines have drawn great attentions with more and more people suffering from walking disabilities in an aging society. However, most of the developed walking rehabilitation machines aim at enhancing muscle strength, neglecting the recovery of the neural system. 58% of walking disabilities are caused by problems in the neural system. Therefore, we propose a rehabilitation system which includes both muscle strength enhancement by a walking rehabilitation machine and neurological rehabilitation by imaginary walking. In this paper we compared the activation in motor area of the brain during real walking and imaginary walking by means of fNIRS (functional Near-InfraRed Spectroscopy). Two subjects participated in the experiment. During imaginary walking, the subjects were instructed to imagine that they were walking with the same pace to a person in the video being shown to the subjects. As a result, the concentration of oxygenated hemoglobin in motor area during imaginary walking was higher than that during real walking in both of the subjects. This was because that it was not necessary to pay attention to the movements of the legs and feet during normal walking on the plain road without any obstacles, while movement planning was required when the subjects imagined their walking in the same way to another person. The experiment result indicated that it is possible to quicken walking rehabilitation by imaginary walking.

    バイオメディカル・ファジィ・システム学会大会講演論文集, バイオメディカル・ファジィ・システム学会, 23巻, 掲載ページ 309-312, 出版日 2010年, Walking support machines are strongly desired with more and more people suffering from walking disabilities in aging society. In previous studies, we have developed an omni-directional walker (ODW) for both walking rehabilitation and walking support. In the case of walking support, it is necessary for the ODW to know which direction its user is intending to go in order to support the user to reach the goal. In this paper, a novel interface is proposed to recognize a user's directional intention according to the force interaction between the user and the ODW. We conducted an experiment to study the relationship between the resultant forearm pressure and the direction intention. The experiment results showed that although there were significant individual differences in forearm pressures, it was possible to reason directional intentions from the forearm pressures. The relationship between forearm pressures and directional intentions was extracted as fuzzy rules. Since the fuzzy rules were sparse, we adopted the distance-type fuzzy reasoning method to develop an algorithm for directional intention. Finally, the effectiveness of the algorithm was verified by experiments, which showed that reasoning results were consistent with the intended directions.

  • Quantification of the Human Ability to Identify Fragmented Letters through Visual Interpolation

    Transactions of Japanese Society for Medical and Biological Engineering, 一般社団法人 日本生体医工学会, 48巻, 4号, 掲載ページ 369-376, 出版日 2010年, 査読付, To quantify a subject's skill at visual interpolation, as in the identification of incomplete letters, we developed a new computer-based system for presenting fragmented letters of the English alphabet. Using this system, we examined the quantitative relationship between the fragmentation of letters and their correct identification in six healthy young male subjects. The 26 letters (black, 72-point, MSP Gothic) were randomly displayed one by one on the screen of a personal computer: each letter appeared once per test. Each of the letters was presented within a square (128 × 128 pixels) against a white background for 200 ms. The fragmented letters were produced by randomly removing pixels from complete letters using three different modes of elimination: removal of single dots or small and large rectangles with random rotation. The complete and fragmented letters were evaluated with respect to the density of information provided by the pixels that constituted the letters according to information theory. There was a direct correlation between the percentage of pixels removed from the complete letters and the density of information about the removed pixels. The scores for the correct identification of fragmented letters with dot elimination remained at almost 100% correct identification regardless of the percentage of pixels removed. In contrast, the correct identification scores with the elimination of large rectangles decreased with the removal of 70%, 80%, 86%, 90%, and 92% of pixels. The correct identification scores for the elimination of small rectangles fell between the scores for the other elimination modes. These results suggest that the identification of fragmented letters could be related to the recognition of structures in which imaginary lines exist between closest pixels, within some limited distance between existing pixels. The evaluation of fragmented-letter identification using this system may be useful for quantifying the capability of visual interpolation.

In the present study, an incomplete-letter recognition experiment is designed to measure the human visual interpolation ability (VIA). The experiment results indicate that features and correlations between features significantly influenced the letter identification. Therefore, it is necessary to consider the importance of letter features in the experiment. An algorithm is proposed to quantitatively evaluate the importance of letter features and the human visual interpolation ability for partially erased letters. Furthermore, the relationship between VIA and age is measured with this algorithm. The results show that VIA decreases with aging, indicating the feasibility to check the health of the brain with the proposed algorithm.

In the task, 85% of the black pixels in the letter images were erased. The display period of the erased letters in the fast section and in the slow section were set to 1000 ins and 3000 ins, respectively, during which the subjects were instructed to respond verbally. Fourteen male volunteers participated in the experiment. Activations in the occipital and bilateral frontal areas were simultaneously examined with three 24-channel probes. The results demonstrated that the oxygenated hemoglobin concentration (oxyHb) during the fast section was relatively higher than that during the slow section. Furthermore, the oxy-Hb difference between the two sections in the occipital areas was more significant than that in the bilateral frontal areas, indicating that for the recognition task in this study, speed change affects the activations in the occipital areas more than those in the frontal areas.

The human visual interpolation ability is defined as the recognition ability to efficiently and accurately identify an object based on object parts. A letter recognition experiment was designed to measure the human visual interpolation ability for partially erased objects. An algorithm was designed to create incomplete letters as stimuli for the experiment. 54 subjects aged from 21 to 76 years participated in the experiment. The experiment results showed that the correct identification rate decreased with the increase of age on average. The subjects were grouped into 6 groups according to their ages (20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s) and a two-tailed t-test of group means was carried out. The t-test results showed that the correct rate decreased with aging more significantly after 50 years old than before 50 years old. The correlation indicates that visual interpolation ability decreases with the increase of age. Furthermore, it indicates the possibility to check the related brain functions based on the correlation between age and visual interpolation ability.

    Faced with the increasingly severe global aging population with fewer children, the research, development, and application of elderly-care robots are expected to provide some technical means to solve the problems of elderly care, disability and semi-disability nursing, and rehabilitation. Elderly-care robots involve biomechanics, computer science, automatic control, ethics, and other fields of knowledge, which is one of the most challenging and most concerned research fields of robotics. Unlike other robots, elderly-care robots work for the frail elderly. There is information exchange and energy exchange between people and robots, and the safe human-robot interaction methods are the research core and key technology. The states of the art of elderly-care robots and their various nursing modes and safe interaction methods are introduced and discussed in this paper. To conclude, considering the disparity between current elderly care robots and their anticipated objectives, we offer a comprehensive overview of the critical technologies and research trends that impact and enhance the feasibility and acceptance of elderly care robots. These areas encompass the collaborative assistance of diverse assistive robots, the establishment of a novel smart home care model for elderly individuals using sensor networks, the optimization of robot design for improved flexibility, and the enhancement of robot acceptability., Frontiers Media SA, 出版日 2023年11月30日, Frontiers in Neuroscience, 17巻, 査読付, 1662-453X
  • Survey on Main Drive Methods Used in Humanoid Robotic Upper Limbs
    Yiwei Wang; Wenyang Li; Shunta Togo; Hiroshi Yokoi; Yinlai Jiang
    ラスト(シニア)オーサー, Humanoid robotic upper limbs including the robotic hand and robotic arm are widely studied as the important parts of a humanoid robot. A robotic upper limb with light weight and high output can perform more tasks. The drive system is one of the main factors affecting the weight and output of the robotic upper limb, and therefore, the main purpose of this study is to compare and analyze the effects of the different drive methods on the overall structure. In this paper, we first introduce the advantages and disadvantages of the main drive methods such as tendon, gear, link, fluid (hydraulic and pneumatic), belt, chain, and screw drives. The design of the drive system is an essential factor to allow the humanoid robotic upper limb to exhibit the structural features and functions of the human upper limb. Therefore, the specific applications of each drive method on the humanoid robotic limbs are illustrated and briefly analyzed. Meanwhile, we compared the differences in the weight and payload (or grasping force) of the robotic hands and robotic arms with different drive methods. The results showed that the tendon drive system is easier to achieve light weight due to its simple structure, while the gear drive system can achieve a larger torque ratio, which results in a larger output torque. Further, the weight of the actuator accounts for a larger proportion of the total weight, and a reasonable external placement of the actuator is also beneficial to achieve light weight., American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 出版日 2021年01月, Cyborg and Bionic Systems, 2021巻, 2692-7632

  • User directional intention recognition of an omnidirectional walking support walker
    Yinlai Jiang; Kenji Ishida; Shuoyu Wang; Takeshi Ando; Masakatsu G. Fujie
    An omnidirectional walking support walker (ODW) is being developed. In order to provide walking support according to the user directional intention, we propose a method to recognize the user directional intention from forearm pressures. The pressures between forearms and the ODW are measured by 4 force sensors embedded in the ODW's armrest. The relationship between forearm pressure and user directional intention was extracted as fuzzy rules and an algorithm was proposed for directional intention identification based on the distance type fuzzy reasoning method. We conducted a path tracking experiment with the proposed method. The results showed that the method was applicable to the ODW's direction control in walking support. © 2011 IEEE., 出版日 2011年, 2011 IEEE International Conference on Mechatronics and Automation, ICMA 2011, 掲載ページ 1291-1296, 英語, 81055124192

    田中 健介; 王 碩玉; 三浦 直樹; 姜 銀来
    アミューズメント分野において,ロボットに娯楽性を持たせることは重要な課題であるが人間とのやり取りから新しい動作を生み出すことができれば娯楽性を実現できるだろう.本報告では,提案したゲームにおいてロボットが人間の知的操作を模倣することで自動的にゲームを達成することを目的とする.そのためにプレイヤーの操作情報及びボールの移動情報を測定し,知識として抽出を行った., 自動制御連合講演会, 出版日 2010年11月, 自動制御連合講演会講演論文集, 53巻, 0号, 掲載ページ 242-242, 日本語, 130005025738
  • Brain-Computer Interface開発における信号の大域的特長の知識抽出
    島本 博史; 三浦 直樹; 姜 銀来; 王 碩玉
    近年、言語や文書での意思伝達が困難な者の介護支援として期待されているBrain-Computer Interface(BCI)の開発が行われているが、計測される生体信号が非線形かつ時変的で再現性がないため、まだ満足できる実用レベルまで至っていない。しかし熟練測定オペレータは、信号を大域的に捉え適切に判断できる。我々は、近赤外線分光法(NIRS)装置を用いて測定された信号を熟練者オペレータの知識としてファジィ集合及びプロダクションルールにより定量的に表現することで大域的特長を重視したBCIの開発をしている。しかし、これまでの発表では熟練測定オペレータの知識抽出作業において局所的な特性を注視し過ぎ適切な知識の抽出ができなかった。そこで本研究では、大域的視点から計測信号の特長を定式化し、熟練者の曖昧言語を統計的手法により得るファジィ集合で定量化する。そして距離型ファジィ推論法に基づき信号認識精度の向上を図る。また、黙読をタスクの一例として提案手法の有効性を示す。, 自動制御連合講演会, 出版日 2010年11月, 自動制御連合講演会講演論文集, 53巻, 0号, 掲載ページ 234-234, 日本語, 130005025729
  • 小型全方向移動機能を持つ案内ロボット
    山中 健史; 王 碩玉; 三浦 直樹; 姜 銀来
    先行研究では、案内ロボットを開発し、障害物回避をしながら被案内者を目的地まで案内することに成功した。しかし、室外では使用できず円柱型ロボット自身の転倒問題があり、結局実用レベルまでには至らなかった。本研究では、小型で全方向移動機能をもつ杖型案内ロボットを開発している。今回では、1号機の動力学モデルと運動学モデルを導出して、シミュレーションおよび走行実験結果を報告する。, 自動制御連合講演会, 出版日 2010年11月, 自動制御連合講演会講演論文集, 53巻, 0号, 掲載ページ 212-212, 日本語, 130005025705
  • 転倒防止を目的とする転倒動作の解析
    真辺 良祐; 王 碩玉; 三浦 直樹; 姜 銀来
    社会の高齢化につれて、高齢者の転倒事故は多発している。力学的な立場から、転倒状態発生の直前に、何らかのFall Signを測定できれば、転倒になりそうな姿勢を安定状態に修正することが可能である。そこで、本研究では、転倒原因の最も多い一つである「つまずき」に着目して、加速度センサーを用いて、歩行時から転倒までの体の頭、肩、腰、膝の加速度の変化から測定・解析することにより、Fall Signを抽出する。結果として、転倒を予測できるようになり、転倒防止につながる。, 自動制御連合講演会, 出版日 2010年11月, 自動制御連合講演会講演論文集, 53巻, 0号, 掲載ページ 156-156, 日本語, 130005025642
  • 座位歩行訓練機による訓練時の動作解析
    吉田 宗基; 王 碩玉; 三浦 直樹; 姜 銀来
    早期回復実現のために,怪我や手術直後,まだ立位筋力不足な状態から歩行訓練を始めることが強く望まれている.したがって,先行研究では,立位筋力不足の重度患者も使用可能な座位歩行訓練機を開発した.しかし,より効果的に訓練するには適切な運動メニューを作成する事が必要である.本発表では,運動メニューづくりの根拠として,座位歩行訓練機使用時と立位での実歩行の場合を,動作や筋力状況について比較することにより,座位歩行訓練機による訓練の特徴を明らかにする., 自動制御連合講演会, 出版日 2010年11月, 自動制御連合講演会講演論文集, 53巻, 0号, 掲載ページ 155-155, 日本語, 130005025641
  • 重心のずれを考慮した座位歩行訓練機の走行制御
    渡辺 悠人; 王 碩玉; 三浦 直樹; 姜 銀来; 石田 健司; 藤江 正克
    立位での歩行訓練が困難な歩行機能障害者の歩行訓練のために,座位での訓練が可能な座位歩行訓練機を開発している.現在,訓練機の移動時に訓練機が理想経路から外れるという問題が生じており,原因として移動時に訓練者の重心が移動する事により全体の重心が想定される位置からずれる事が考えられる.そこで本研究では,重心のずれを考慮した座位歩行訓練機のモデリングを行った後,PID制御法を用いて重心のずれがある場合の経路追従誤差の抑制効果について明らかにする., 自動制御連合講演会, 出版日 2010年11月, 自動制御連合講演会講演論文集, 53巻, 0号, 掲載ページ 154-154, 日本語, 130005025640
  • 黙読を用いたBrain-Computer Interface開発のための脳血流変化の知識化
    島本 博史; 三浦 直樹; 姜 銀来; 王 碩玉
    Brain-Computer Interface(BCI)とは非侵襲的に計測した脳活動信号を用いて機器を操作するインターフェイスであり、我々は近赤外線分光法 (NIRS)を用いて計測した脳血流変化を利用してBCIの開発を行っている。これまでに黙読時の脳血流変化を距離型ファジィ推論法によってBCIの制御信号とする手法を提案してきたがNIRS信号の持つ信号特性が知識としてファジィルールに十分に反映されていないという問題点が残されていた。そこで本研究では、より適切なファジィルール決定のために、黙読時の脳血流変化をNIRSにより計測し信号特性の解析を行う。計測実験として黙読課題時の両側前頭前野の脳血流変化の計測を3名の被験者に対し周4回4週間の計測を行い、計測結果から課題特異的な脳血流変化パターンを抽出しその知識化を試みる。, 日本知能情報ファジィ学会, 出版日 2010年09月, 日本知能情報ファジィ学会 ファジィ システム シンポジウム 講演論文集, 26巻, 0号, 掲載ページ 298-298, 日本語, 130005035557
  • 移動支援ロボットの走行制御のための力覚情報による方向意図同定法
    高木 紀明; 王 碩玉; 三浦 直樹; 姜 銀来
    移動支援ロボットの走行を制御する場合、被支援者の行きたい方向をロボットに正確に伝える必要がある。本研究は歩行時被支援者の前腕部の力覚情報を利用し方向意図を同定する方法を提案する。移動支援ロボットのアームレストに荷重センサーを装着し、被支援者の前腕荷重と方向意図との定量関係の計測を行い、その定量関係に基づいて距離型ファジィ推論法を用いた方向意図の同定法を開発する。実験により、本手法の有効性を示す。, 自動制御連合講演会, 出版日 2010年09月, 自動制御連合講演会講演論文集, 53巻, 0号, 掲載ページ 310-310, 日本語, 130005025814

    歩行障害患者の歩行訓練のためには,まだベッドに横になっている状態からの訓練が重要であり,さらに運動制御を行う脳についても同様に訓練を行うことが重要であると考えられる.しかも,後遺症を残さないためにはなるべく早く訓練することが望ましい.そこで本研究では歩行イメージによる回復初期の歩行訓練法を開発するために近赤外線分光法を用いて歩行運動想起時及び実歩行時の脳活動を計測し,両者の比較から歩行訓練に利用可能な脳活動の情報の抽出を試みる., 自動制御連合講演会, 出版日 2010年, 自動制御連合講演会講演論文集, 53巻, 0号, 掲載ページ 157-157, 日本語, 130005025643

    横井 浩史; 高木 岳彦; 東郷 俊太; 姜 銀来; 加藤 龍
    日本学術振興会, 科学研究費助成事業 基盤研究(A), 電気通信大学, 基盤研究(A), 本研究は,前腕切断者用の筋電義手として,自由度の高い運動能力と感覚の代替機能の実現を目指して,指先の触圧感覚と関節角のフィードバック機構を有する5指ハンドの開発を行い,筋電制御システムを利用して,切断者の手指動作の再建の課題に挑戦する. 課題は,メカ開発とセンサグローブ開発の2項目からなる. メカ開発では,ワイヤー干渉駆動法を用いて軽量・多自由度・高出力を有する5指ロボットハンドを試作し,性能評価を通して改良し,筋電義手に適用可能な設計法を明らかにすることを目指した.2021年度においては,3名の成人前腕切断者に,試作した5指駆動型筋電義手を適用し,フィールドテストを行った.期間中3回のフィールドテスト評価では,自由度義手との性能差を,BBT(Box and Block Test)及びCarroll test等の評価試験によって比較し,有用性を評価した. 当多自由度義手は,国内2例目の筋電義手として,2022年3月31日,厚生労働省補装具完成用部品に指定された. センサグローブ開発においては,導電性シリコンを応用することにより,指先の触圧と関節角を計測し,これを振動子を用いて断端部ソケットに伝達することを目的として,開発を進めた.2020年度においては,さらに,感覚のフィードバックの方法として視覚への映像変化として情報提示を行う方法を開発し,前述の触覚と聴覚へのフィードバックとのパフォーマンス比較実験を行った.患者への触覚のフィードバック方法として申請当初はボイスコイルによる振動フィードバックを検討していたが,2021年度に再検討し,フィードバックの呈示装置として骨伝導イヤホンを採用することとし,有効性検証のため,聴覚刺激を行いながら日常生活音を聞き応答する二重課題法を行い,人の囁き声に当たる30~40dBの小さな音に応答できること,これが日常生活を阻害しないことを明らかにした., 18H03761

  • 義手を身体化するための相補的なマルチモーダル生体信号の計測と解析法
    姜 銀来; 横井 浩史
    日本学術振興会, 科学研究費助成事業 基盤研究(C), 電気通信大学, 基盤研究(C), 失った手の機能を再建する義手を制御するため、sEMG(表面筋電図)はよく利用されている。しかし、sEMG信号の数と質は使用者の状況に制限され、高機能義手の性能を発揮するために十分な情報が得られない場合がある。本研究は、sEMG信号不足の課題を解決するため、FMG(force Myography)を導入し、sEMGとFMGを計測する単体センサの開発と、sEMGとFMGから前腕手部動作の同定法の構築を行った。FMGの導入により信号全体のロバスト性が向上し、手部動作の識別精度が著しく改善された。sEMG-FMG単体センサにより、使用者の負担を増やさずに高機能義手を安定的に制御できることが期待できる。, 19K12877

  • 随意独立活性に着目したヒトの多筋制御システムのモデル化と筋電肩義手制御への応用
    東郷 俊太; 今水 寛; 横井 浩史; 姜 銀来
    日本学術振興会, 科学研究費助成事業, 電気通信大学, 若手研究(B), 本研究では,ヒトの随意多筋制御メカニズムをモデル化するとともに,筋電肩義手制御へ応用することを目的とした.筋シナジーの概念に随意制御性を導入し,適切な指標を用いれば,随意活性可能な筋シナジーを抽出可能であることを示した.また,筋シナジーは随意筋制御の最小単位ではないことも示唆された.また,低自由度制御入力でロボットアームの腕運動を制御しなければならない筋電肩義手システムに,自由度を削減するシナジーの概念を適用することで,両肩離断者のユーザーにおいても単純な物体の把持移動動作が可能であることも示した.本研究の以上の成果は,研究代表者が提案する人間化ロボティクスの有用性を示している., 17K17724

    横井 浩史; 姜 銀来
    日本学術振興会, 科学研究費助成事業 挑戦的萌芽研究, 電気通信大学, 挑戦的萌芽研究, 筋電義手の制御信号として皮膚表面から筋活動情報を計測するために,表面電極が必要である.本研究は,アグリゲーション性の高いカーボンブラックとシリコーンを混合することで導電性シリコーンを作成し,さらに金属製の不織布に導電性シリコーンを塗布することで,電極の材料を開発した.筋電電極は,皮膚と義手ソケットの間に用いられ,外力に影響される可能性があるため,外力の影響を定量的に調べた.センサ全体をシリコーンで覆うようにし,汗や水のある環境でも利用可能となった.さらに,義手に感覚機能を付与するために,導電性シリコーンを利用した感圧センサを開発し,義手との一体化を実現した., 16K12951

  • 単体多機能型自立生活支援ロボットの本質的安全技術と知能化技術の開発
    王 碩玉; 井上 喜雄; 石田 健司; 片岡 万里; 藤江 正克; 江丸 貴紀; 向殿 政男; 姜 銀来
    日本学術振興会, 科学研究費助成事業 基盤研究(B), 高知工科大学, 基盤研究(B), 研究分担者, 現在、様々な生活支援ロボットが開発されている。しかし、これらのほとんどは、単一機能しか持っていない機器であるため、自立生活に必要な基本的動作群(ADL)には対応できていない。また、狭い自宅に多数の単一機能型機器を備えることが困難であるとともに、使い方が統一されず煩雑である。 そこで今回の研究は、単体多機能型生活支援ロボットを提案し、具体的に①安全性保証技術、②作業意図推定法、③トータルシステムの構成法を開発することにより、下肢障害者や弱体高齢者の自立生活支援を目的とする、単体多機能型生活支援ロボットを完成させ、実環境での支援実験を行い、有用性を示す。, 24300203
