Abstract

As part of a project to create tools that facilitate the design of haptic characteristics of manual interfaces, we have developed an experimental hardware and control setup which will permit characterization of the most effective and efficient means of actively emulating haptic feedback. The system consists of a one degree of freedom linear actuator equipped with sensors and interface handle, signal conditioning, a servo amplifier, variable physical damping and a haptic environment controller implemented on a Pentium PC. Because the system is to be used in experiments which test the emulation of a wide range of nonlinear haptic phenomenon as well as a variety of emulation strategies, it was designed with an emphasis on versatility and performance.
