Shoe-based sensor system smartens up gait rehabilitation and therapy

submitted by: nsf
It may look like an insole, but this Smart Shoes system developed at the Mechanical Systems Control Lab at UC Berkeley could help physical therapists get their patients walking better, faster. Sensors capture information to create a detailed picture of the patient's gait and walking abnormalities, while real-time visual feedback helps patients and therapists see and measure change and progress. The result: made-to-order physical therapy for maximum impact. Credit: National Science...

Autonomous robot does laundry

submitted by: nsf
People typically consider doing the laundry to be a boring chore. But laundry is far from boring for artificial intelligence (AI) researchers like Siddharth Srivastava, a scientist at the United Technologies Research Center, Berkeley. To AI experts, programming a robot to do the laundry represents a challenging planning problem because current sensing and manipulation technology is not good enough to identify precisely the number of clothing pieces that are in a pile and the number that...
