Table of contents

Haptic interfaces and devices

Vincent Hayward, Oliver R. Astley, Manuel Cruz‐Hernandez, Danny Grant, Gabriel Robles‐De‐La‐Torre

Haptic interfaces enable person‐machine communication through touch, and most commonly, in response to user movements. We comment on a distinct property of haptic…

Dynamic sensing

Don Braggins

Describes a novel system that simultaneously measures both force and acceleration, and hence deduces mass. The system has been in use on ships and at fish‐sorting plants…

Flexible tactile sensor technology: bringing haptics to life

Mark Lowe, Alison King, Elizabeth Lovett, Thomas Papakostas

The continued evolution of computer technology requires us now more than ever to investigate and understand man‐machine interfaces. Physical interface peripherals such as…

Silicon microsurgery‐force sensor based on diffractive optical MEMS encoders

Xiaojing Zhang

This paper presents a micrograting‐based force sensor integrated with a surface micromachined silicon‐nitride probe suitable for characterizing microsurgery force on a…

Force‐based impedance control of a haptic master system for teleoperation

A. Frisoli, E. Sotgiu, C.A. Avizzano, D. Checcacci, M. Bergamasco

This paper analyzes the design of a force‐based impedance control for a haptic interface system characterized by a parallel kinematics. By exploiting the features of…

Toward virtual manipulation: from one point of contact to four

Federico Barbagli, Kenneth Salisbury, Roman Devengenzo

This paper describes a series of kinematic and haptic analyses which lead to the design of a particularly simple, yet useful multi‐hand, multi‐finger haptic interface. The…

Force control for industrial applications using a fuzzy PI controller

J. Norberto Pires, Tiago Godinho, Ricardo Araújo

In this paper, a small revision on force control strategies is presented, stressing the implementation requirements of each strategy with the objective of clarifying the…

Magnetorheological fluids based haptic device

W.H. Li, H. Du, N.Q. Guo, P.B. Kosasih

This paper presents the development of a haptic device working with magnetorheological (MR) fluids. The computer screen is portioned in various segments and the…

Theoretical and experimental analysis of a piezoelectric tactile sensor for use in endoscopic surgery

Javad Dargahi, Siamak Najarian

This paper describes design, theoretical, and experimental analysis of a polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) tactile sensor, which could be integrated with an endoscopic…
