Synergistic prostheses enable the coordinated movement of the human-prosthetic arm, as required by activities of daily living. This is achieved by coupling the motion of the prosthesis to the human command, such as residual limb movement in motion-based interfaces. Previous studies demonstrated that developing human-prosthetic synergies in joint-space must consider individual motor behaviour and the intended task to be performed, requiring personalisation and task calibration.

    We introduce a new robotic RGBD dataset with difficult luminosity conditions: ONERA.ROOM. It comprises RGB-D data (as pairs of images) and corresponding annotations in PASCAL VOC format (xml files)

    It aims at People detection, in (mostly) indoor and outdoor environments. People in the field of view can be standing, but also lying on the ground as after a fall.

    These datasets are of the hydraulically actuated robot HyQ’s proprioceptive sensors. They include absolute and relative encoders, force and torque sensors, and MEMS-based and fibre optic-based inertial measurement units (IMUs). Additionally, a motion capture system recorded the ground truth data with millimetre accuracy. In the datasets HyQ was manually controlled to trot in place or move around the laboratory. The sequence includes: forward and backwards motion, side-to-side motion, zig-zags, yaw motion, and a mix of linear and yaw motion.

      In recent years, researchers have explored gesture-based interfaces to control robots in non-traditional ways. These interfaces require the ability to track the body movements of the user in 3D. Deploying mo-cap systems for tracking tends to be costly, intrusive, and requires a clear line of sight, making them ill-adapted for applications that need fast deployment, such as artistic performance and emergency response.
