Summary

This course teaches basic knowledge on haptic devices, force feedback and mechanical man-machine interfaces. Lectures are about 40 %, the rest is hands-on practical work with the "haptic paddle", a complete mechanical device with full laptop control interface. Realization of project in groups of 2.
