A soft exoskeleton jacket with pneumatic gel muscles for human motion interaction

About the project
This work proposes to use an assistive device to augment the perception of human motion force applied from one subject to another through an avatar. This experiment presents an avatar augmentation that can provide the feeling of motion with two degrees of freedom at the elbow and shoulder acquired with algorithmic detection of input angles. To generate the operation of the appropriate motion, the interface is comprised of a depth sensor, an ESP32 embedded board, electric valves, and pneumatic gel muscles. An evaluation is presented which confirms the performance of the suit by measuring the latency of the system. The experimental results demonstrate that the developed suit can convey the motion of one user to another with a delay of 670ms.
