A new dual pump hydraulic supply designed to enable energetically autonomous exoskeleton robots will be developed, tested and demonstrated. This new hydraulic supply will be integrated with a high performance hydraulically actuated full body exoskeleton robot and used to test and demonstrate the overall performances of such systems. New control policies that include: (i) an assist mode, where the exoskeleton helps its operator while performing demanding activities such as walking up-hill with a load; and (ii) real-time learning control policies tailored to reduce the operators effort in cyclic gait, such as walking and running, will be used and tested both using simulations and the high performance full body exoskeleton robot.
