Exoskeletons, a wearable robot that intelligently augments the physical power of a human being. These robots are used in military and similar applications, but the challenge remains that how to make the human-machine interaction safe and sound. The idea behind the 'intention based approach' is that an array of compliant force sensors will continuously monitor the movement of the limb and then map the filtered data to drive the respective actuator which in turn helps in doing the same 'movement' with augmented power and better stability. Additionally a 9 DoF IMU, continuously map the end effector's spatial position as an additional feedback utilizing the Inertial Reference Unit's (IRU) algorithm.
