Performance Measures for Haptic Interfaces
A haptic interface is distinct from other display devices because it is bi-directional; it is capable of both reading and writing input to and from a human user. Due to both the direct humanExpand

Haptic interfaces and devices
Haptic interfaces enable person‐machine communication through touch, and most commonly, in response to user movements. We comment on a distinct property of haptic interfaces, that of providing forExpand

Design constraints for haptic surgery simulation
There are many engineering challenges that must be addressed in order to successfully integrate haptics with the environmental characteristics found in surgery. The most fundamental of theseExpand

Multirate haptic simulation achieved by coupling finite element meshes through Norton equivalents
This paper introduces a methodology to simulate the dynamics of deformable viscoelastic 3D bodies in real-time for haptic interaction. The method is based upon a finite element approach. The centralExpand

Towards Patient-Specific Anatomical Model Generation for Finite Element-Based Surgical Simulation
This paper presents ongoing research on a semi-automatic method for computing, from CT and MR data, patient-specific anatomical models used in surgical simulation. Surgical simulation is a softwareExpand

A PC-based system architecture for real-time finite element-based tool-specific surgical simulation
Abstract Up to now, true finite element methods have been thought too slow to achieve visual and haptic feedback in real-time, or required extensive pre-computation in a manner that made themExpand

An experimental procedure for autonomous joint sensor estimation using adaptive control
The autonomous parameter estimation of a manipulator is considered with respect to both dynamic and joint sensor properties. Using methods based on adaptive control, a new formulation is introducedExpand

FREEDOM-7: A High Fidelity Seven Axis Haptic Device with Application to Surgical Training
A seven axis haptic device, called the Freedom-7, is described in relation to its application to surgical training. The generality of its concept makes it also relevant to most other hapticExpand

A software architecture for surgical simulation using haptics
The application of haptic devices to surgery simulation presents many exciting opportunities. For example, medical students could practise surgery without using animals and surgeons could evaluateExpand
