Multifunctional arm prosthesis control

A control system for an arm prosthesis is to be developed which enables intuitive movement of the end effector, i.e. the hand prosthesis, its position and orientation. The actual movement of the elbow or wrist is to be automated by the control system; the user must only control the target position. As such, it is necessary to compare and combine different sensor types and modalities in order to find out through which combination of sensor technology and fusion algorithms an intuitive control of the prosthesis can be created.
