  3. 3. 3 Neuromuscular Adaptations Overview Neuromuscular Adaptations • Adaptive Robot Co-Workers • Exercise, Training, and Rehabilitation • Robotic Vehicles • Autonomous • Manual • Drivers “Current human-robot interactions require physical contact between the operator and machine, creating a coupled dynamic system” “Neuromuscular adaptations in human-robot interactions allow for increased control and stability through an HCI”
  4. 4. 4 Human Computer Interaction Overview Principles behind HCI • Early focus on users and tasks • Determine appropriate users • Empirical Measurement • Quantify results • Iterative Design • Design • Test • Analyze • Repeat “Human Computer Interaction is the fusion of computer technology, with a focus on interfaces between people and computers” “Human Computer Interaction is situated at the intersection of computer science, behavioral sciences, design, and media study”
  5. 5. 5 Myo Armband Overview Using proprietary EMG sensors, the Myo measures electrical activity from muscles to detect poses made by your hands. Using a 9-axis IMU, it senses the motion, orientation and rotation of your forearm.
  6. 6. 6 Muscle (EMG) Activity - Electromyography Electromyography • Medicine technique • Evaluates and records electrical activity from skeletal muscles • Used to detect: • Medical abnormalities • Activation levels • Recruitment orders Myo • Uses electromyography as an input • Uses FCU and ECU muscles as a controller
