Presentation: Until recently, options for those who have suffered upper limb loss through amputation or neurodegenerative disease, have been very limited. For example, upper extremity amputees frequently decline to wear a conventional prosthetic due to the very limited functionality. Recent integration of advances in neuroscience, robotics and autonomy are now opening new options for neurally controlled prosthetics and assistive robots. Beyond prosthetics, the intersection of advances across multiple technical disciplines will provide the ability to intuitively control and interact with complex robotic systems, fundamentally changing our interactions with the machines around us. In this talk we will discuss some of these advances, show some examples of recent advances and discuss some of the challenges to the systems engineer and technical manager.
