Abstract

Oscillatory behavior is important for tasks such as walking and running. We are developing methods to add energy to enhance or vary the oscillatory behavior based on the system's phase angle. We define a nonlinear oscillator using a forcing function based on the sine and cosine of the system's phase angle that can modulate the amplitude and frequency of oscillation. The stability of the system is proved using the Poincaré-Bendixson criterion. Linear and rotational mechanical systems are simulated using our phase controller. The method is implemented and tested to control a pendulum. Lastly, we propose how to assist hip motion during walking using the phase-based forcing function.
