The CAPIO Active Upper Body Exoskeleton
In Workshop Proceedings of the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation 2014, (ICRA-2014), 31.5.-05.6.2014, Hong Kong, o.A., Jun/2014.
In this extended abstract, a concept for a poster is explained which will present an exoskeleton for the human upper body. This device was developed at the Robotics Innovation Center (RIC), DFKI Bremen, in scope of a project called CAPIO, and is intended to be used for teleoperation of robotic systems. Several novelties of the exoskeleton in the areas of kinematic design, actuation, and manifacturing are presented in the first paragraph ‘Design’. Subsequently, in the paragraph ‘Workflow’, the procedure of obtaining the kinematic and the dynamic model from the computer aided design is reflected. Finally, the approaches of controlling the exoskeleton are described in the paragraph ‘Control’.
