Abstract

A major shift in how electronic devices can be controlled is proposed. The proposed project, if successful, will allow the control of any electronic device (i.e. prosthetic limb, computer) by use of neural and minor muscular inputs. We are developing an adaptive algorithm capable of choosing a best set of signals/signal locations, on an individual basis, from the large number of possible combinations available as initial control solutions. As the user becomes more adept with controlling the device, this personalized adaptive algorithm will learn which control signals provide the most effective control. Similar to learning to walk, coordination of the various sensors will adapt, improving overall control.
