Design And Development Of Mechanically Automated Renovative Under Transforming Intelligence

[Full Text]



Mohammed Aamir Ahmed, Narendra Wadaskar



Keywords: MARUTI, Control circuit, Knee dynamics, Driving circuit



Abstract: In this paper, a controlling system is implemented for a wearable walking supporting device so called as Mechanically Automated Renovative Under Transforming Intelligence (MARUTI). The control circuit is implemented without considering the biological signals of the human body for the knee part, which is based on the knee joint moment from the human body model. The control and a driving circuits are implemented to assistive the knee as for the requirement of knee joint dynamics.
