EXSKALLERATE Foresight Study
In order to define the future of exoskeletons in the North Sea Region and the rest of Europe, this report zooms in on the strategic thrusts that help to ensure a wider adoption of exoskeletons, delivering societal benefits, economic growth and increased competitiveness.
The research considers the facilitators, barriers and challenges that must be overcome to spur the adoption of exoskeletons. This scenario study aims to explore a future vision for exoskeletons in which two trajectories are mapped in a business-as-usual scenario and an intervention scenario. In doing so, this study equips readers with guidance for exoskeleton innovation and development.
This report, developed by HAWK University on behalf of the EXSKALLERATE consortium compiles the best practices and key project activities for future replication. The report focuses on integral EXSKALLERATE work packages, outlining key takeaways to be considered when conducting future exoskeleton research.
EXSKALLERATE Benchmarking Guidelines
This project deliverable collects the performance metrics and testing methods for occupational exoskeletons found in literature and industry. On this basis, the report presents a list of benchmarking metrics and testing methodology for industrial exoskeletons, which contributes to comparing exoskeletons across different scenarios and creating benchmarking guidelines facilitating standardisation frameworks. Finally, the report outlines a benchmarking method and assessment framework to benchmark occupational exoskeletons.
