RE2 Robotics to Present on Biomechanical Exoskeleton Simulation System at Xponential 2016
RE2 Robotics announced today that the Company will exhibit at Xponential 2016 on May 2-5, 2016 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Xponential, sponsored by the Association of Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI), convenes the largest global community of leaders in intelligent robotics, drones and unmanned systems. RE2 Robotics will demonstrate its small, lightweight manipulator arm, DM4-A2, along with its Imitative Controller technology, in booth #2053.
RE2 Principal Scientist, Dr. Andrew Mor, Ph.D., is scheduled to present on the Company’s biomechanical exoskeleton simulation research on Wednesday, May 4th in a presentation titled, A Biomechanical Exoskeleton Simulator System to Study the Potential Health Impact on the Human Operator.
“Military personnel are constantly asked to do more, and over the past two decades injury rates traceable to overloading have climbed,” stated Dr. Andrew B. Mor, Principal Scientist at RE2 Robotics. “Exoskeleton use has the potential to reduce these injuries but the interaction of the user to the equipment must be refined to reduce the musculoskeletal impact of the system. By simulating the interactions between human operators and exoskeletons, the Biomechanical Exoskeleton Simulator System will help improve understanding of the potential injury mechanisms from exoskeleton use, enable faster turnaround for exoskeleton design changes, and foster improved concept of operations and faster deployment when exoskeletons are ultimately introduced to widespread use.”
Dr. Andrew B. Mor is responsible for leading development in new research areas and managing the technical development for multiple programs for RE2 Robotics. Dr. Mor has over 20 years of experience in numerous aspects of robotics, including space, medical, and ground robotics. Specific areas of experience include unmanned system mission and path planning, medical image processing, vision image processing, haptic interface development, and simulation.Read More
