Most ground robots deployed in disaster areas have been of limited use mainly because of their reduced mobility in degraded environments. Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) have considerable mobility benefits over ground robots, however they are currently only used for providing aerial views and often lack any manipulation capabilities, despite...

To investigate the effects of haptic feedback on the task-sharing performance during approach when using a Tunnel-in- the-Sky display, a within-subject simulated experiment with 12 participants was conducted in the SIMONA Research Simulator at Delft University of Technology. The experiment consisted of a primary Tunnel-in-the-Sky tracking task,...

For the development of a space qualified, 7 degrees of freedom, haptic arm exoskeleton a brushless DC motor with high torque production, power density and efficiency was selected. However, the attraction of the rotor magnets to the stator teeth introduces an additive, position dependent, torque disturbance on the motor shaft called cogging...

In teleoperations, haptic feedback allows the human operator to touch the remote environment. Yet it is only partially understood to what extent the quality of haptic feedback contributes to human-in-the-loop task performance. This paper presents a human factors experiment in which telemanipulated task performance is assessed for three stages of...

Currently 75% of children with a visual impairment attend regular schools. Schools are digitizing, which poses both advantages as well as threads to the education of students who are blind. With help of VoiceOver or refreshable braille displays, digital textual information has become accessible to the student, however, there is no solution...

This report concerns the development of a jacket for people with balance problems. Patients with failing balance organs can have serious difficulty to maintain their balance. The balance jacket contains a sensor and a belt of actuators. The sensor determines the orientation of the patient and provised feedback to the jacket. The jacket contains...

The following thesis reports the graduation project done at the ESA Telerobotics & Haptics Lab by the Industrial Design Engineering student Emiel den Exter. The assignment was to design a set of upper body orthoses for astronauts, which are used to attach force-reflecting arm-exoskeletons to the human body. Exoskeletons are lightweight robotics...

Manoharan, V. (author)
Epidural anaesthesia is a pain relief technique commonly performed on patients in labor. It requires insertion of a needle into patients back into the epidural space of the spine and inject anaesthetic. It is a blind procedure and anaesthesiologists rely only on the forces felt during needle insertion to determine the position of the needle tip....

This report presents the design of a haptic tool for designers. The tool should aid them in material selection for product experience and fit in an advanced design studio known as the Tangible Virtual Reality environment. The field of haptics and existing haptic devices were studied, as well as the Tangible Virtual Reality environment....
