The enhanced version for our control algorithm is ready. Thanks to accelerometers, we can detect the exact position of the leg and implement a closed-loop control system for the movement of the leg. Here's a demo of the movement of Exo ALICE leg:

Thanks for reading.

Very interesting. Is the accelerometer the only way of getting position feedback or is there some kind of absolute encoder as well? 

  Are you sure? yes | no
