A flat rigid plate is a universal planar manipulator
  • D. Reznik, J. Canny
  • Computer Science, Engineering

  • 16 May 1998
TLDR
We show that a closed rigid motion of the plate, involving its 3 DOF, can be computed which produces desired average forces at a finite number of points, e.g., parts locations. Expand

Universal part manipulation in the plane with a single horizontally-vibrating plate
Active surfaces can manipulate (i.e., translate, rotate) one or more parts in the plane by \displaying" arbitrary forces at a number of points. Many designs have been proposed based on aExpand
