Vibration-Induced Frictional Force Fields on a Rigid Plate


By vibrating a rigid plate with up to six degrees of freedom, we can create a large family of programmable frictional force fields acting on parts resting on the plate. These fields can be used for sensorless part orientation, uncertainty-reducing transport, and simultaneous manipulation of multiple parts. The principle is demonstrated by a plate rotating… (More)
