In this enormously transformed moment version of Engineering Haptic Devices the psychophysic content material has been completely revised and up to date. Chapters on haptic interplay, process constructions and layout method have been rewritten from scratch to incorporate additional uncomplicated ideas and up to date findings. New chapters at the evaluate of haptic platforms and the layout of 3 exemplary haptic platforms from technology and were added.
This publication was once written for college students and engineers which are confronted with the improvement of a task-specific haptic approach. it's a reference publication for the fundamentals of haptic interplay and latest haptic platforms and strategies in addition to a superb resource of data for technical questions coming up within the layout means of platforms and components.
Divided into elements, half 1 comprises normal software parts of haptic platforms and a radical research of haptics as an interplay modality. The function of the consumer within the layout of haptic structures is mentioned and suitable layout and improvement phases are defined. half II offers all appropriate difficulties within the layout of haptic structures together with basic procedure and keep watch over buildings, kinematic constructions, actuator ideas and sensors for strength and kinematic measures. additional chapters study interfaces and software program improvement for digital fact simulations.
