Quanser HD² High Definition Haptic Device
The HD² High-Definition Haptic Device is a high-fidelity haptic interface for advanced research in haptics as well as robotics. Combined with Quanser’s powerful control design environment, it provides a flexible development test bed for various emerging applications such as virtual medical simulators and teleoperation.
As a dexterous haptic device, HD² enables researchers to interact with virtual or remote environments using programmable force feedback. Compared to other commercially available haptic devices, HD² has a large workspace and very low intervening dynamics. This parallel mechanism is highly back-drivable with negligible friction. The heavy-duty capstan drive and high-performance motors reduce the perceived inertia while maintaining rigidity of the device structure.
