HUMBIOS- Interpretation of the human intention and performance through biomedical signals and analysis of kinematic and dynamic motion

This project focuses on the work of interpreting the information provided by the user (surgeon in the surgical environment and patient / therapist in rehabilitation setting.) The main work of this subproject is based on:

a)  The interpretation of kinematic and dynamic information of the human intention and performance. To accomplish this goal, software modules will be developed to extend the features of already known packages as OpenSim from These studies are directly applicable to other sub-projects that participate in this request.

b)  The interpretation of human intention and action through biomedical signals and their use as actuators to produce biofeedback. It is proposed to work on the selection and integration of biomedical signals in a new intelligent bio-cooperative controller capable of improving human-machine interaction. These studies are directly applicable to other sub-projects.

c)  The development of a demonstrator of the benefits of the cooperative controller for a rehabilitation setting. The objective is to evaluate the benefits of including the patient in the control loop from the point of view of the patient’s motivation. With this aim, the experimental protocol will be defined first, and then an extensive validation in healthy subjects will be carried out, in order to evaluate and compare the performance of a robotic system for an upper limb of 2 planar degrees freedom. Finally, the opinion of physiotherapists and users on the level satisfaction with the use of the prototypes will be evaluated with questionnaires. The responses will be reviewed in a report of improvements that will include the comments from surveys.

COSTE4DIS project

The specific objectives for the UMH research group at the subproject “Control of telerobotics systems using advanced interfaces for disabled people” are:
1. Development of a non-invasive cerebral interface that allows generating control actions of the telerobotic system from the cerebral activity of the operator.
2. Development of an eye-tracking interface that allows generating control actions of the telerobotic system from the operator eye motion.

3. Design of a shared control architecture that allows generating control actions of the telerobotic system from the sensorial fusion of the information generated by the advanced interface: cerebral, ocular and muscular information.

4. Design of a supervised control architecture that allows to use the interface to generate high level commands for the
telerobotic system.
5. Integration of the interface and the control architectures, first in a dynamic simulator of teleoperation, and then, in a real environment of teleoperation.
