A 4-DoF Parallel Origami Haptic Device for Normal, Shear, and Torsion Feedback

  title={A 4-DoF Parallel Origami Haptic Device for Normal, Shear, and Torsion Feedback},
  author={Sophia R. Williams and Jacob M. Suchoski and Zonghe Chua and Allison M. Okamura},
We present a mesoscale finger-mounted 4-degreeof-freedom (DoF) haptic device that is created using origami fabrication techniques. The 4-DoF device is a parallel kinematic mechanism capable of delivering normal, shear, and torsional haptic feedback to the fingertip. Traditional methods of robot fabrication are not well suited for designing small robotic devices because it is challenging and expensive to manufacture small, low-friction joints. Our device uses origami manufacturing principles to… Expand

A new haptic rendering algorithm for generating convincing interaction forces for objects modeled as rigid polyhedra is focused on, which creates a virtual model of the haptic interface, called the god-object, which conforms to the virtual environment. Expand
A novel fingertip haptic device for display of local contact geometry
The device is endowed with an actuation system that controls the motion of a platform, that can come in contact with the fingerpad with different orientations and at different fingerpad locations, simulating the contact with a virtual surface. Expand
Sensory substitution of force and torque using 6-DoF tangential and normal skin deformation feedback
A 6-degree-of-freedom tactile device is designed that creates similar skin deformation patterns on the fingerpads to convey force and torque information in teleoperation systems such as robot-assisted surgery, where force feedback may be undesirable due to stability and safety concerns. Expand
