Dr. Yasuharu Koike, Professor at the Institute of Innovative Research at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Japan), will present his work on: Human Interface based on Musculoskeletal system.
Talk Summary: Our body motion and force interaction are controlled by the muscle force. We have been developing a model of the musculoskeletal system whose inputs are EMG activities and outputs are joint torque. This mathematical musculoskeletal model is useful to estimate joint equilibrium position and joint stiffness from EMG activities. In this talk, I will introduce this model and its applications for human interface.
