Abstract

This paper reports a preliminary overview on the existing metrics and benchmarks for the assessment of lower limb wearable robotics performance. This analysis was conducted to identify the current necessities, preferences, and deficiencies on this topic within the scientific robotics community. Based on these results, we aim to establish a robust set design criteria of a comprehensive benchmarking scheme for wearable robotic technology considering real life scenarios.
