The lockheed Martin team developing and deakin university cooperation FORTIS exoskeleton
Sep 18, 2018

Lockheed Martin Australia and deakin university institute of intelligent systems research and innovation (IISRI) cooperation has carried out for 12 months of development plan, to extend the lockheed Martin's FORTIS exoskeleton.


The exoskeletons of FORTIS is a kind of unpowered, lightweight, designed by lockheed Martin, can support up to 16.3 kg (36 pounds) tools, and transfer the load from the workers hands and arms to the ground.Goal is to reduce the burden of workers and improve the safety of the workers.Lockheed Martin authorized B - Temia bionic augmented Dermoskeleton in April 2017 into its exoskeleton project.

IISRI team biomechanics were used to test the use of electric tools on the health effects of the human body engineering, use of sensors from the exoskeletons operator's arm and shoulder motion capture, and through the signal processing technology are analyzed.

Deakin researchers have IISRI design and 3D printing the new attachment, to extend the functionality of FORTIS exoskeletons, allow them to hold back the external load are normally installed in the human body.
