Reachy will be used by INCIA for research on prosthesis control via EMG (Electromyography, i.e. muscular activity).
This project follows from a INRIA Flowers - INCIA collaboration during which 2 internships Joel Ortiz and Sébastien Mick have developed a modified version of Poppy and used it to prototype the control of a robotic arm via EMG.
The logical next step was to scale up to a bio-inspired robotic prosthesis of human size and with an articulated hand.
Armed with our experience and our modular tools, we quickly designed and produced a fully functional robotic arm that is customized for INCIA applications.
