BME7670: Experimental Methods in Physiology
This course introduces basic principles and techniques for monitoring, signal processing, and reading electromyography (EMGs), electroencephalography (EEGs), electro-cardiology (ECGs), galvanic skin response and polygraph (electro-dermal activity, EDA) , human acceleration response, and neurophysiology. This course also introduces basic human machine interface and application of human electrophysiology signal processing in robot control. Artificial intelligent (AI) and statistics-based machine learning will also be introduced.
BME5990: Development of Architecture of Computer Controlled Robotic Exoskeletons.
Upper arm or lower limb exoskeletons will be designed using NX software. The sketches will be sent to profession service to make parts. The parts will be assembled in robotic exoskeleton lab and machine shop. Micro-control chips, servo chips, and battery will be integrated into the exoskeletons. Computer algorithms will be made to control joint movement based on human kinesiology. The function of exoskeleton will be tested and validated using a 170lb body weight hybrid-dummy system.
BME7990: Development of Architecture of Intuitively Controlled Exoskeletons.
This direct study covers research topics including human machine interface, bio-electrical signal processing, mechanical designing of exoskeletons, development of electromechanical system, computer algorithms, and robot function evaluation.Human bio-electrical signals such as muscle electrical signals (electromyography, EMG) or brain wave signal (electroencephalography, EEG) will be recorded, decoded and encoded to make algorithms for intuitive control of robotic actuation system. High bio-fidelity EMG and EEG signals will be recorded using novel electrodes such as nano-graphene multi-array electordes. EMG and EEG features will be extracted for computer algorithm development and optimization of multiple degree of freedom exoskeleton limbs’ motions. Robotic exoskeleton system includes upper arms and lower limbs and soft-body hands.
