Presentation of the collaboration

A pluridisciplinary team

Both Inria-Lagadic and Aspire CREATe teams are involved in robotic assistance research area. In particular, their works deal with robotized wheelchair navigation. Inria Lagadic team brings to the project its competence on sensor-based servoing and autonomous/semi-autonomous navigation of non-holonomic mobile robots. Aspire CREATe team is affiliated with the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital and has expertise in innovative sensors, adapted interfaces and novel human-machine control algorithms related to wheelchair and exoskeleton navigation.

The consortium is completed by the Rehabilitation Center Pôle MPR Saint Hélier that receives patients with neurological diseases, either as inpatients or day hospital cases. In this project, Pôle Saint Hélier brings then its competence in medical validation, evaluation methodologies and will allow to perform clinical trials.
