Piroga5 is a 5 d.o.f. wire-driven haptic display, which can exert three forces and two moments on a pen-shaped end-effector. Forces are exerted by means of six wires driven by six DC motors. The control system is based on a dedicated VME architecture. A 3D virtual environment able to handle NURBS surfaces was implemented.
