Abstract
THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DESIGN AND FABRICATE AN INNOVATIVE FINGERTIP-SHAPED TACTILE TELEPRESENCE SYSTEM FOR DEXTEROUS TELEROBOTIC SYSTEMS. THE PRINCIPAL TASKS TO BE PERFORMED ARE: (1) DESIGN OF VARIOUS MINIATURE TACTILE STIMULATOR ELEMENTS AND EVALUATION OF THE ACTUATION STRENGTH, DISPLACEMENT MAGNITUDE, FREQUENCY RESPONSE RANGE, AND THERMAL LOADING CHARACTERISTICS, (2) CONSTRUCTION OF A THIN, FINGERTIP STIMULATOR UNIT CONTAINING 35 ELEMENTS, (3) FABRICATION OF AN OPTICAL, FINGERTIP-SHAPED TACTILE SENSOR CONTAINING 35 SENSOR ELEMENTS, AND (4) CONSTRUCTION OF AN INTERFACE UNIT THAT WILL COUPLE THE OPTICAL OUTPUT FROM THE TACTILE SENSOR TO THE FINGERTIP STIMULATION UNIT. THE PERFORMANCE OF THE RESULTING TACTILE STIMULATION SYSTEM WILLBE QUALITATIVELY EVALUATED USING A SIMPLE, SINGLE-FINGER TELEOPERATOR TEST DEVICE.
