How can I control hydraulic pistons using myoelectric (muscle signal) sensors ?
Hello, this is my first post. I've run into a problem. I've designed an exoskeletal armor system, yet don't know how to control it. I have an approximate idea; using myoelectric sensors on the major muscles of the arms, torso, and legs, it will track and replicate muscle movement patterns through hydraulic pistons in the suit. Problem being; I don't know how to activate the pistons using this method. I don't even know if you can attach the pistons to a micro controller the sensors are hooked up to. Any information that may help is appreciated. I am in no way a professional after all, and this is my most ambitious design yet. Certainly to be the most complicated, expensive, and tasking build I've done too. I will upload the designs whenever possible, as I have no scanner at this time.
