Outline

For realizing an Innovative Flexible Wearable Assist System (IFWAS) consisting enormous combination of thin artificial muscles, this research clears both a basic topology of thin artificial muscles and a novel control method suitable for that. IFWAS has possibility of assisting user’s flexible motions in daily life. Minimal spatial combination of artificial muscles (minimal module) will be cleared in this research term, being able to express basic motions of human body parts (flexion-extension, abduction-adduction, lateral-medial rotation). Also a novel control method will be developed in order to control the module to realize any three dimensional motions.
