According to the team, exoskeletons of this nature, while proving effective in reducing the energy required to walk, tend to be expensive. They are also usually tethered which, as you can imagine, would be restrictive. The Stanford Biomechatronics Laboratory’s exoskeleton, however, is neither of those things. And much of that is down to the incorporation of a Raspberry Pi 4 computer linked up to a host of sensors, a motor, and a motor driver….
