Abstract: The paper presents a concept and implementation of communication interface and protocol for robotic assistive device for a knee joint with distributed control system. The main goal of this project is to successfully help elderly and disabled people to walk and exercise without necessity for assistance from other people. In addition, the proposed modular device is planned to be used for rehabilitation. The device has been designed as a lightweight independent platform with intuitive and flexible control. The main control feedback is using electromyography signals as a source of information on the intention of the user. The device has also been equipped with variety of sensors for kinematics measurements. An investigation in the structural system and communication protocol design for reliable and safe operation of the device is presented. These studies lead to a highly adaptive decentralized structure of the assistive device with robust and reliable serial communication protocol.
