      In nowadays aging society, many people require assistance for non-pedestrian mobility. In some cases, assistive devices require a certain degree of autonomy when the persons’ disabilities difficult manual control. In this ...
    • A new collaborative shared control strategy for continuous elder/robot assisted navigation 

      Caltagirone, Carlo; Annicchiarico, Roberta; Urdiales García, Cristina; Peula, José Ma.; Barrué Subirana, Cristian; Pérez, Eduardo J.; Sánchez-Tato, Isabel; del Toro, J.M.; Cortés García, Claudio Ulises; Sandoval, Francisco (2008)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      In nowadays aging society, many people require mobility assistance. Autonomous wheelchairs may provide some help, but they are not supposed to overtake all control on human mobility, as this is reported to lead to loss ...
    • A new multi-criteria optimization strategy for shared control in wheelchair assisted navigation 

      Sandoval, Francisco; Caltagirone, Carlo; Annicchiarico, Roberta; Cortés García, Claudio Ulises; Urdiales García, Cristina; Peula, José Ma.; Fernández-Carmona, Manuel; Barrué Subirana, Cristian; Pérez, Eduardo J.; Sánchez-Tato, Isabel; del Toro, J.C.; Galluppi, F. (2011-02-01)

      In todays aging society, many people require mobility assistance, that can be provided by robotized assistive wheelchairs with a certain degree of autonomy when manual control is unfeasible due to disability. Robot ...
    • An adaptive scheme for wheelchair navigation collaborative control 

      Urdiales García, Cristina; Peula, José Ma.; Barrué Subirana, Cristian; Cortés García, Claudio Ulises; Sandoval, Francisco; Caltagirone, Carlo; Annicchiarico, Roberta (AAAI Press. Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence, 2008)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      In this paper we propose a system where machine and human cooperate at every situation via a reactive emergent behavior, so that the person is always in charge of his/her own motion. Our approach relies on locally evaluating ...

      Fall risk assessments provide a useful tool to prevent morbidity and mortality provoked by falls. Nowadays, these assessments are usually performed manually by the medical staff. This approach has three main drawbacks: i) ...
    • On gait analysis estimation errors using force sensors on a smart rollator 

      Ballesteros, Joaquin; Urdiales García, Cristina; Martínez Velasco, Antonio Benito; Dieën, Jaap H. van (2016-11-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      Gait analysis can provide valuable information on a person’s condition and rehabilitation progress. Gait is typically captured using external equipment and/or wearable sensors. These tests are largely constrained to specific ...
