There are now over 20 million people in the world with missing limbs resulting from combat and non-combat operations and by 2050 there will be 50 million amputees all over the world. The availability of artificial limbs will help these people to lead a better normal life. The overall goal of the research on prosthetic hand technology is to develop a smart prosthetic hand using intelligent strategies for electromyography (EMG) signal extraction, analysis, identification, kinematic synthesis, and embedded hierarchical real-time systems and control by fusion of soft computing and hard computing techniques. The fusion of soft and hard control synergetic strategy alleviates the present problems associated with prosthetic devices. A highlight of the presentation is to reenact the recent (2016-August-12) TED talk on 3D printed prosthetic hand for the world given by Professor Naidu.

D Subbaram Naidu received his MTech and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering (with specialization in Control Systems Engineering), from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kharagpur. He taught, visited and/or conducted research at IIT; as National Research Council (NRC) Senior Research Associate at Guidance and Control Division at NASA Langley Research Center; Old Domain University; as Professor, Associate Dean and Director, School of Engineering at Idaho State University and Measurement and Control Engineering Research Center; as National Research Council (NRC) Senior Research Associate at Center of Excellence in Advanced Flight Research at United States (US) Air Force Research Laboratory; as Visiting Research Fellow at Center of Excellence for Ships and Ocean Structures at Norwegian University of Science and Technology.
