Exoskeleton Hip Joint

This page details the work my team and I completed over the course of a year as a part of the Cal Poly Quality of Life Plus student club. The project began from first principles investigating necessary design constraints and iterating according to the results of testing. Constrains included actuating a torque of 200 N-m with one degree of freedom as suggested by industry professionals. Design work included executing gearing and shaft analysis to design and build a 100:1 gear ratio actuator in a minimal dimensional package. Unfortunately, due to COVID we were unable to prototype our final design and the team subsequently shifted focus to simulation.
