The course can only be taken together with the lecture "Practical Course Wearable Robotics: Upper Limb Exoskeletons", which takes place on Fridays 10.30h - 12h in the seminar room 2026, Karlstr. 45, 2nd floor. For more details please check TUMonline.

In this course we introduce students to the fundamentals of robotics and control to develop wearable robotics. The course consists of theoretical lectures, hands-on tutorials, and a final project. The lectures introduce selected topics on robotics, sensors, and actuators by connecting it to neuromechanics and motor control in humans, and their application to upper-limb exoskeletons with a special focus on rehabilitation of patients with neurological disorders. The hands-on tutorials guide the students to program the robotic control of a single joint upper limb exoskeleton using robot skin developed in our laboratory as a sensory interface. Each group of students will receive a hardware setup to work with in the tutorials and project phases. In the final part of the course the students are supported in the development of their final projects through regular colloquium with the lecturers. Students are expected to apply what they learned in the lectures and tutorials to implement exoskeleton control routines used in robotics rehabilitation areas.
