Xu-99 [Target]
Joint: Elbow
Direction: Flexion-Extension
Characteristic(s): Viscoelasticity

[Measurement Condition]
Subjects: 3 males & 1 female
Age Span: 22-32
Country: USA
Method: Estimation by dynamic equilibration (type 2-2)

[Definition]
Refer to the figure on the right side.
The posture of the upper arm in parallel on the horizontal plane and the forearm standing vertically is defined as the standard poture of elbow.

[Expression of the data]
Graph of a viscoelastic coefficient (and moment of inearia) to joint angle
Function not shown

[Characteristics]
  • These joint viscoelastic characteristics are identified using an estimation method of an inpedance in robot engineering.
  • The main purpose of this paper is about the technique of the estimation method.
