Title: SOFT ROBOTIC HAND GLOVE FOR REHABILITATION

Abstract

About 15% of the world population have some form of disabilities which suffers for daily activities due to cerebral vascular accident (CVA) or stroke. Enhancing the wearable lightweight robotic hand glove that able to enhance rehabilitation process as well as the mechanism of secured grasping objects is essential to reduce this suffer. Since, commercial robotic gloves only used for normal grasping mechanism which no feedback response to assist the paralysed hands. Thus, introducing a wearable robotic hand gloves based on pressure sensors or sEMG for rehabilitation system is required for nowadays quality of life. These new approaches provide a real time self-calibration and muscle activities methods of wearable robotic hand glove in order to improve the efficiency of measurement. Results shown that high accuracies measurement which lead to reduce the cost and the size of such systems and make them more affordable and practical both grasping mechanisms and rehabilitation activities.

Title: Changes in Automotive Embedded Systems under the CASE

Abstract

After explaining the basics of automotive embedded systems briefly, this talk explains their changes that are happening recently.  As automobiles undergo a revolutionary change with the four keywords of CASE (connected, autonomous, shared & services, and electric), major changes are also occurring in automotive embedded systems. In addition to changes in elemental technologies, such as processor, OS, and network, system architecture is also changing. Also explained is the situation where the controlled object is expanding from one vehicle to road traffic system, and further to a city and society as a whole.
