• Modeling and Control of an Improved Dissipative Passive Haptic Display 

      Reed, Matthew R.; Book, Wayne John (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2004)
      This paper investigates the modeling and control of a new dissipative passive haptic display that uses magneto rheological (MR) brakes as actuators. The device is energetically passive, meaning that it can only remove ...
    • Reach out and touch someone: controlling haptic manipulators near and far 

      Book, Wayne John; Swanson, Davin K. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyElsevier, 2003)
      Robotic devices now commonly interact physically with humans. Control issues surrounding this constraint are discussed and several approaches are considered. Examined in detail is the use of energetically passive designs, ...
