The objective of this research is to address challenges posed by the man-machine interface. Couched in the specifics of neuroprosthetic hands, this research seeks to develop transformative methods of human-machine communication and control to enhance the capabilities of currently-limited physical resources. In the grand vision of cyber-physical systems, these advancements translate into (i) communication of tactile sensation from a remote end-effector to a human user, (ii) division of control based on the spatial and temporal capabilities of the syst
This project addresses the design of control systems where the principle disturbances are the result of routine human behavior, i.e.
