Low-level controller of active spinal exoskeleton

Which is the best way to control a wearable robot? The answer to this question is heavily dependent on 3 main factors: the mechatronic hardware chosen by the designers, the tasks where the robot needs to assist (bending forward, lifting, >0 trunk angle static postures,…), and the tasks where the user needs to be free of the exoskeleton’s intervention (walking, stair climbing, sitting…). In SPEXOR we are exploring different types of control modes and capabilities that are unique among the state of the art devices.
