Joris De Schutter

Joris De Schutter received the M.Sc. degree in mechanical engineering from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (KU Leuven), Leuven, Belgium, in 1980, the M.Sc. degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA, USA, in 1981, and the Ph.D. degree in mechanical engineering from KU Leuven, in 1986.,Following work as a Control Systems Engineer in industry, in 1986, he became a Lecturer in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, KU Leuven, where he has been a Full Professor since 1995. He teaches courses on kinematics and dynamics of machinery, systems and control, robotics, and optimization. His research interests include sensor-based robot control and programming, human motion modeling, human–robot interaction, multisensor fusion and estimation for model building and real-time control, and optimization of mechanical and mechatronic drive systems.

Subject-Exoskeleton Contact Model Calibration Leads to Accurate Interaction Force Predictions
Knowledge of human–exoskeleton interaction forces is crucial to assess user comfort and effectiveness of the interaction. The subject-exoskeleton collaborative movement and its interaction forces can be predicted in silico using computational modeling techniques. We developed an optimal control framework that...
