Daily Support Robots that Move on Me
We developed a wearable robot as a partner, that moves on the human body autonomously. As daily support, the robot has an application to correct wearers’ sitting posture. It estimates wearers’ body state from some sensors, and if it perceives wearers’ bad posture or habit, points them out by moving to a region of the problem directly. We may be able to make use of it, not only to correct our posture or bad habit, but especially, to train children.
