Abstract:

OVER THE LAST TWENTY YEARS THERE HAVE BEEN NUMEROUS NEW INNOVATIONS IN GYROSCOPIC CONTROL MECHANISMS, INCLUDING BOTH ATTITUDE AND RATE GYROS. AN OPPORTUNITY EXISTS WHEREBY STATE-OF-THE-ART IN AUTOPILOT AND ATTITUDE DETERMINATION ON GYROSCOPIC CONTROL TECHNOLOGY CAN BE COMBINED WITH METHODS OF MODELING HUMAN BIOMECHANICS AND PSYCHOMOTOR PROCESSES IN ORDER TO IMPROVE AVAILABLE METHODS OF MAN-MACHINE INTERFACE. SUCH BIO-GYROSCOPIC CONTROL SERVOMECHANISMS CAN BE USED FOR TRAINING AND REFINEMENT OF FINE MOTOR SKILLS; SUPPORTING LIMBS IN UNCOMFORTABLE POSITIONS FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME WITHOUT FATIGUE AND WITHOUT DEGRADATION IN PERFORMANCE OF FINE MOTOR MOVEMENT; IMPROVED INTERFACE TO ROBOTIC AND BIONIC EXTENSIONS OF HUMANLIMBS; RECOVERY AND TEMPORARY CORRECTIONAL CONTROL OF AIR ORSPACE CRAFT UNTIL AUTO-PILOTS CAN BE ACTIVATED FOLLOWING A PILOT INJURY; AS A NON-RESTRICTIVE SUPPORT FOR BROKEN OR DAMAGED LIMBS; AND FOR USE IN BETTER MODELING OF HUMAN FACTORS FOR BETTER DESIGN OF MAN-MACHINE INTERFACE CONTROLS.
