This project pursues three complementary research lines on design of 4-hands system, robot control and study of human motor control.
- Design of 4-hands system: Development of robotic feet interfaces and robot controllers to tele-operate the two extra robotic arms via haptic interfaces.
- Shared Control: Robot Control Strategies to endow the robotic system with task autonomy, while the human supervises the interaction of the manipulation in both motion and force.
- Human Motor Control: Study of underlying mechanisms of coordination among hands and feet in such supernumerary scenario. This with the goal of understanding human limits and develop training strategies using robotic technologies.
