A Smart Artificial Hand for Amputees Merges User and Robotic Control
- Magazine Article
EPFL scientists are developing new approaches for improved control of robotic hands — in particular for amputees — that combines individual finger control and automation for improved grasping and manipulation. This interdisciplinary proof-of-concept between neuroengineering and robotics was successfully tested on three amputees and seven healthy subjects. The results are published in a recent issue of Nature Machine Intelligence.
