Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Northwestern University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N09-T024
Budget: 08/05/10 - 01/31/12

Many aquatic creatures transduce magnetic and electric fields for navigation cues and feedback control. Such sensing capabilities would greatly advance AUV technology. We will continue the co-design of sensing and motion capabilities along with empowering algorithms for underwater perception and navigation. We have made significant advancements ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB093-005
Budget: 06/22/10 - 08/15/10

By any measure, the human hands and brain form a remarkable system for perception and manipulation. Of particular interest to us is the ability to perform tactual stereognosis: i.e., to identify objects by touch. In a landmark study, Lederman and Klatzky (1987) showed that stereognosis is subserved by a set of stereotypical exploratory proced...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-09-080
Budget: 05/01/10 - 04/30/11

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this project is to create an intuitive control scheme for rotation of a prosthetic joint that preserves proprioception of limb rotation. Such a control scheme would reduce the cognitive burden of controlling the prosthetic limb and allow the incorporation of additional prosthesis movements, thus ...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Northwestern University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N09-T024
Budget: 06/29/09 - 04/30/10

In addition to their ubiquitous abilities for navigation at small spatial scales, a host of animals migrate long distances through the open ocean or skies. The mechanisms underlying these powerful navigational abilities are slowly being decoded. This progress offers the opportunity to develop low cost navigational systems for use in future auton...

Phase 2 STTR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-02-71
Budget: 09/01/08 - 08/31/10

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Chicago PT is developing rehabilitation robotics to help clinicians provide more intensive functional retraining of overground walking, post-stroke. Chicago PT's concept is to build devices that work with the clinician rather than replacing the clinician, in order to retain the clinician's skilled manual conn...
