A Full Body Steerable Wind Display for a Locomotion Interface
TLDR
A full-body immersive virtual environment for the Treadport locomotion interface designed for generating wind on a user from any frontal direction at speeds up to 20 kph to simulate the experience of realistic wind while walking in an outdoor virtual environment.
Experimental Characterization and Control of Miniaturized Pneumatic Artificial Muscle
Robotic surgical tools used in minimally invasive surgeries (MIS) require miniaturized and reliable actuators for precise positioning and control of the end-effector. Miniature pneumatic artificial
Development of Miniaturized Pneumatic Artificial Muscle for Surgical Device
TLDR
The details of the developed experimental set-up, experimental data on contraction and force as a function of applied pressure and characterization of the MPAM, and the design and experiments with novel endoscopic surgical tool that uses the developed MPAMs for improved dexterity and position control are presented.
Control of a Duct Flow Network for Wind Display in a Virtual Environment
Control of flow in duct networks has a myriad of applications ranging from heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning to blood flow networks. The system considered here provides vent velocity inputs
A Compliant End-Effector to Passively Limit the Force in Tele-Operated Tissue-Cutting
TLDR
A compliant end-effector that cuts soft tissues and senses the cutting forces and an immersive tele-operated tissue-cutting system together with a haptic device that gives real-time force feedback to the user are presented.
