Since bionic limbs often can’t rely on muscle contractions or nerve impulses to move as a normal arms or legs would, they need guidance from artificial intelligence. North Carolina State University researchers said they have developed software that can work with existing robotic prosthetics or exoskeletons to help people walk more naturally and safely over a variety of terrain.
