Title: KINETIC SENSING, SIGNAL GENERATION, FEATURE EXTRACTION, AND PATTERN RECOGNITION FOR CONTROL OF AUTONOMOUS WEARABLE LEG DEVICES
Abstract:
An autonomous wearable leg device employs an array of sensors embedded along a support area, whereby a controller can generate a controlling command and send a controlling command to a prosthetic, orthotic, exoskeletal or wearable component to thereby control the prosthetic, orthotic, exoskeletal or wearable component. A method for controlling autonomous wearable device collects kinetic signals from an array of sensors embedded in a prosthetic, orthotic or exoskeletal component, wherein all values are extracted from at least one feature of the collected kinetic signals, which are applied to a controller that generates a controlling command that is sent to the prosthetic, orthotic exoskeletal component to thereby control the prosthetic, orthotic or exoskeletal component during a portion of a gait cycle.
