    Abstract : This thesis is a development project for a myoelectric prosthetic hand. That means a mechanical hand that is controlled and actuated by the user's own muscles on the residual limb. The thesis has led to a theoretical concept of a complete prosthesis and a non-complete physical prototype that provides proof of concept and functions. READ MORE

  2. 2. Brake Control for Lateral Vehicle Dynamics

    University essay from Chalmers tekniska högskola/Institutionen för tillämpad mekanik

    Author : Anders Larsson; Kara Ghasemiani; [2015]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : This thesis describes the evaluation of the potential in utilizing the brakes on a vehicle to perform a small-overlapavoidance maneuver as a potential future active safety system and is done through both experimental andsimulated testing. A strong reason for using brakes instead of steering is the availability of a powerful actuatorthat can be controlled by-wire while being less intrusive than a mechanically connected steering-actuatedsystem.
