My research of exoskeleton robots in China

The exoskeleton robot, also known as power suit, is a kind of human-machine highly coupled, intelligent and wearable device, which should integrate multiple technologies such as bionic mechanics, sensing and information technology, intelligent control system, high-performance power unit and actuator. Throughout my postgraduate period, I have been engaged in various research of exoskeleton robots, mainly including three types of exoskeleton robots, the lower extremity exoskeleton robot (LEER), the vibration reduction exoskeleton (VRE) in riveting process of aircraft assembly and the waist enhanced exoskeleton (WEE). Definitely, all of them have good application value and application prospects to deal with the social problem of aging population, as a result of some tests of these exoskeleton robots related to me. Those results reveal that the wearer can easily carry 80 kg of weight for 90 minutes walking normally with LEER, with VRE the vibration impact on workers would be reduced by more than 20% during riveting work and WEE can also decrease the loading load by about 50%. Although there are many benefits of exoskeleton, there are also some common problems that make wearers afraid or refuse to use. This lecture will explore and analyze the main factors impeding the widespread use of exoskeleton by analyzing the social background of China and the characteristics of the exoskeleton robot itself...
