Advanced Development of Next Actuators for Human Sensory Feedback
The development of actuators with enhanced capabilities is critical to the achievement of sensory feedback systems for intuitive, real time human operations of telerobotic systems. The objective of this research project is to continue development of new actuators using active materials which will enhance the capabilities of dexterous, exoskeletal feedback systems for telerobotic applications.
Exoskeleton Active Materials
Terfenol-D Force Feedback
Exoskeletons for Human Performance
Projects will lead to self-powered, controlled, and wearable exoskeletal devices and/or machines and demonstrations of their utility in military applications.
