Title:
An Environment Recognition and Parameterization System for Shared-Control of a Powered Lower-Limb Exoskeleton 
Abstract:
The daily use of advanced wearable robotic devices for the assistance of people with locomotor disabilities is still facing clear limitations in usability and acceptance (e.g. cost, complexity, and inability to maintain balance). In most devices, the correct selection and initiation of pre-defined functions and activities (e.g. walking and stair ascent-descent) rely on the user's input and constant interpretation of the environment, which results in a substantial cognitive workload. In this stud...    »
