Cooperative Walking Support System -IP Cane-

ipcane1

In this study, we have proposed a walking support system based on the cooperation between wearable-type and cane-type walking support systems for supporting the elderly and physically disabled. In this system, we aim to realize several functions for supporting the daily life of the user by cooperatively controlling each walking support systems based on  the intended motion of the user, their state and environmental information. As the first step to build this system, we proposed the walking support based on the user’s intension.
