Descripción
The intended use as an assistive device for daily life activities still encounters barriers to practical implementation. Current batteries cannot meet the long-term power requirements for these devices, which need to operate for long periods. This issue has become a major challenge in the development of these portable robots. Conversely, legged locomotion in animals and humans is efficient. This thesis explores the methods to reduce energy consumption in the motion control of gait exoskeletons and especially its applicability and feasibility. From a thorough analysis of the human gait from the energetic point of view and based on the state of development of robotics, a hybrid strategy is proposed to reduce energy consumption in the gait cycle.
