IROS 2020 Workshop: Compliant Actuation for Human Performance Augmentation

Posted by on Monday, November 23, 2020 in News.

One way to imagine human augmentation is to consider an energetically active robot that supplements muscle power with external energy. Another way to imagine human augmentation is to consider solely human-powered energetically passive devices; two examples are bicycles and ice-skates. In this talk, I will discuss the hidden potential of an emerging human-powered compliant actuation concept, and its potential to enable the creation of better human augmentation devices.
