The Georgia Tech system is designed to improve the "intelligence" of human-controlled robots
The system monitors muscle movements in order to anticipate the operator's intention
The main aims of the research are to improve safety, time and efficiency in manufacturing plants
The system will continue to be developed using a US$1.2 million National Robotics Initiative grant supported by a National Science Foundation grant
Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have created a system that makes a human-controlled robot more "intelligent," and improves the amount of control that a human user has over it. It incorporates a number of sensors that are placed on the user's arm to read muscle information, and help the robot to anticipate the user's intentions. The system has been developed to improve safety and efficiency in manufacturing plants.
