: Tele-operational tasks often suffer from instability issues and limited reliability during unpredictable interactions. We propose a real-time control law reproducing the impedance and kinematic behaviour of a subject's arm (shoulder and elbow) on a remote avatar in a 2-DoF task. The human arm impedance and kinematics are estimated respectively from EMG and M-IMU data and then mapped into the avatar arm through an impedance control. Contrary to literature methods, our portable tele-impedance controller relies only on wearable sensors and enables an easy use in unstructured environments. The good performance (R2> 0.7) of the muscle model used to map on the robot the human stiffness of five healthy subjects indicates the possibility of applying the proposed algorithm for a tele-impedance control.

Abstract

: Tele-operational tasks often suffer from instability issues and limited reliability during unpredictable interactions. We propose a real-time control law reproducing the impedance and kinematic behaviour of a subject's arm (shoulder and elbow) on a remote avatar in a 2-DoF task. The human arm impedance and kinematics are estimated respectively from EMG and M-IMU data and then mapped into the avatar arm through an impedance control. Contrary to literature methods, our portable tele-impedance controller relies only on wearable sensors and enables an easy use in unstructured environments. The good performance (R2> 0.7) of the muscle model used to map on the robot the human stiffness of five healthy subjects indicates the possibility of applying the proposed algorithm for a tele-impedance control.
