Visible to the public CPS Large: Cybernetic Interfaces for the Restoration of Human Movement through Functional Electrical Stimulation

Abstract:

Functional electrical stimulation (FES) is a promising technology for activating muscles in spinal cord injured (SCI) patients. The objective of our project has been to develop an intuitive user interface and control system for FES that allows high-level tetraplegic patients to regain the use of their own arm. This work has had two primary outcomes: contributions to the development of a technology that benefits those with high-level SCI, and the development of biologically-inspired design principles for cyber-physical systems.

Visible to the public CPS Synergy: Collaborative Research: Formal Design of Semi-autonomous Cyber Physical Transportation Systems

Abstract:

The goal of this project is to develop fundamental theory, computationally efficient algorithms, and real-world experiments for the analysis and design of safety-critical cyber-physical transportation systems with human operators. To this end, we propose a modeling, theoretical, and experimental collaborative effort combining human factors, control theory, and computer science. As crashes at traffic intersections account for about 40% of overall vehicle crashes, we will focus on intersection crashes in this project.
