Clearpath Robotics Partners with Thalmic Labs to Drive Robot with Arm Motions

Posted by Techvibes NewsDesk

Kitchener based companies and University of Waterloo startups, Thalmic Labs and Clearpath Robotics have joined forces to prove gesture controlled robots are possible.

Thalmic Labs, developers of Myo Gesture Control, released the Myo alpha developer unit to Clearpath Robotics for testing. Clearpath has successfully integrated the Myo armband with their Husky Unmanned Ground Vehicle to start, stop and drive the vehicle using simple arm movements.

“There are a lot of interesting applications for using the Myo for robot control and our team is very excited to have the opportunity to work with the Alpha dev unit,” said Ryan Gariepy, Chief Technical Officer at Clearpath Robotics. “We’ve been eagerly following Thalmic’s progress and we’ve got a dozen different robots here we could do some more tests with.”
