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)
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)
This paper describes a Model Predictive Control (MPC) design for the thermal management of cabin heat in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs). Due to the augmented complexity of the energy flow in recent energy-efficient vehicles in comparison to conventional vehicles, control degrees of freedom are increased, as many components can achieve the same(More)
