In this work a virtual reality medical training system (MTS) for bone drilling skill training is presented. For this purpose a novel controller algorithm, two graphical user interfaces for teaching and simulating purposes are developed. A 3 DOF haptic display that is developed in our laboratory is used for force feedback. Several user tests are performed to(More)
— An overview of subjectively selected topics and research trends in the area of virtual reality and telepresence systems is given. The major focus is on haptic feedback devices allowing the operator to touch virtual and remote objects. The paper presents selected hardware developments and application studies in the haptic research area carried out at the(More)
In this paper, the interaction of our novel hyper-redundant hap-tic display ViSHaRD10 with virtual deformable objects is investigated. ViSHaRD10 has serial kinematic structure and 10 degrees of freedom. The work mainly represents benchmark tests for this novel display. Additionally it aims to create easy-to-use virtual de-formable objects. Two different(More)
This deliverable belongs to Task 7.5, which was added to the annex of the project after the first review, appropriate to the recommendations of the reviewers. In this report, specifications of the demonstrator scenarios are discussed. Four representative areas for haptic feedback are selected and demonstration scenarios are created appropriate to these(More)
In this paper a variety of battery configuration topologies for electrified vehicles are investigated with regard to reliability and expected lifetime along with the possibility of applying active fault detection to provide early warnings for the driver. Different configurations are investigated ranging from a simple single serial string of battery cells(More)
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the interconnection of embedded devices and offers the possibility of exploiting cloud-based services to improve control functions. But how much cloud control is possible when facing real-time challenges in a safety-critical environment? This paper provides first insights and data into cloud-based control by means of a(More)
