Abstract

The control of rehabilitation robots presents a formidable challenge owing to the myriad of uncharted disturbances encountered in real-world applications. Despite the existence of several techniques proposed for controlling and identifying such systems, many cutting-edge approaches have yet to be implemented in the context of rehabilitation robots. This highlights the necessity for further investigation and exploration in this field. In light of this motivation, we introduce a pioneering algorithm that employs a finite estimator and Gaussian process to identify and forecast the uncharted dynamics of a 2-DoF knee rehabilitation robot. The proposed algorithm harnesses the probabilistic nature of Gaussian processes, while also guaranteeing finite-time convergence through the utilization of the Lyapunov theorem. This dual advantage allows for the effective exploitation of the Gaussian process’s probabilistic capabilities while ensuring reliable and timely convergence of the algorithm. The algorithm is delineated and the finite time convergence is proven. Subsequently, its performance is investigated through numerical simulations for estimating complex unknown and time-varying dynamics. The results obtained from the proposed algorithm are then employed for controlling the rehabilitation robot, highlighting its remarkable capability to provide precise estimates while effectively handling uncertainty.
