Variable Stiffness Transradial Hand Prosthesis

Variable Stiffness Transradial Hand Prosthesis

We have developed a low-cost, customizable, easy-to-use transradial hand prosthesis capable of adapting its stiffness. Control of the variable stiffness transradial hand prosthesis is achieved by a surface electromyography (sEMG) signals based natural human-machine interface, called tele-impedance control.

Friction Rendering of Parametric Surfaces

Friction Rendering of Parametric Surfaces

  Haptic rendering is the process of computing the forces arising from the interaction between a user and a virtual environment and feeding these forces back to the user to enable physical interaction with computationally mediated environments. The success of haptic rendering primarily depends on the level of immersion experienced by the user. Several haptic rendering algorithms have been developed to enhance the realism through imitation of various physical characteristics of the virtual objects, such as shape,
