IC16: Assistive Robotics to Support Activities of Daily Living

People who use powered mobility devices often experience functional limitations in reaching and handling that are critical in completing basic activities of daily living (ADLs). In this workshop, we will discuss assistive robotic manipulators (ARMs) as a potential solution. The workshop will cover the basics and research around ARMs, and feature presentations, live demos, and videos, and provide opportunities for the audience to try different control interfaces.

 

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this session, attendees will be able to;
