Transcript of HAL Exoskeleton

H.A.L exoskeleton
(Hybrid assistive limb)

{Human robot suit}
BY: Avani Bichkar and Sierra call
Robot Tasks/ How it Works

How it works: the suit's "voluntary control system" works by capturing bio-electric signals detected on the surface of the skin, befroe the muscles actually move. the system analyzes these signals to deterimne how much power the robot needs to generate so it can help.
Tasks: since the HAL robot is used as an exstention of the body structure, and helps lift weights. the hal robot is used by hospital patients with disabilities, to get up from a chair, to walk or to lift different types of weights. with construction, the robots can be used in common activities, especially for carrying or picking up heavy loads that can't be removed without assistance.
Where is the Robot Used and What is Its Work Envelope?
In October 2011, Hal suits were being used by 130 different medical institutions across the country. The Hal system became the first powered exoskeleton to receive a EC certificate of conformity in Germany. this means it has passed the german safety standards of the tuv Rhineland agency and is allowed to be sold in the country

Is the Robotic End Effector
THe HAl robot end effectors are very multi-funcional. It has 4 end effectors which are the hands and feet. They are able to perform many tasks such as running, walking, grabbing objects, lifting, etc.
How is the Robot Taught to Perform
Its Task?

The hal robot is taught to perform its task by getting to know the person wearing it. It learns from the movements of the owner and verbal cues once certain goals have been achieved. Complex programming goes into the robot prior to being used by a human-being and each suit is custom made according to the owners weight and gait.
What sensors does the robot have and how does the robot use these sensors?
The exoskeleton can help the elderly and/or disabled walk again
When perfected, the exoskeleton will help the military run faster, carry heavier weapons/supplies, and jump over large obstacles on the battle ground
The HAL is used by the japanese government. At the fukushima daichii nuclear disaster in 2011, the japanese government tried out various types of robotic technology

One PROBLEM WITH THE HAL EXOSKELETON WOULD BE SAFETY. Sudden involuntary or unplanned movements could result in serious injuries if safety protocols were not designed correctly.
Fully mimicking the motions of the human body may be much more difficult than the designs safety protocols.
The flexibility of the spine could be the hardest problem that requires solving, when dealing with the HAL exoskeleton.

The hal exoskeleton detects signals through sensors attached to the skin of the user. Whenever the the user tries to move, based off of the signals the power unit gets, it moves the joint to support and boost the user's movement.
How this robot creates new jobs

The impact this robot has had or could have on its intended audience.
what will this robot do in the future?
The HAL exoskeleton is mostly made for people with disabilities. It has been designed to support and expand the physical capabilities of its users, which are mostly people with disabilities. There are two types of HAL systems. The HAL 3 provides leg function, while the HAL 5 is a full-body exoskeleton for the arms, legs, and torso. HAL 5 can help the person wearing it to lift and carry about five times as much weight he or she could lift before putting on the suit.
we think that the robot will be able to lift hevier loads and the price may go down in the future. we also to think that they will invent finger, toe, and neck extensions that will help people who are paralyzed and/or disabled to where they cannot move their extremities.
Yoshiyuki sankai, the founder and CEO of the company Cyberdyne, said that the ISO certification will help bring the suit to other markets, especially in Europe. The company plans t0 expand to Germany and then, to other European nations.
