Manipulability of a planar wire driven haptic device
Mechanism and Machine Theory, 37(2):215228, 2002

Abstract: This paper presents a planar 4 wire driven 3 D.o.F. mechanism. For a planar haptic interface, this device could provide planar forces and moment feedback to the human operator. The particular end-effector geometric configuration overcomes manipulability problems arising from other recent planar wire haptic interfaces. Moreover, an explicit forward kinematic pose solution is obtained by introducing a modified wire configuration. Complete kinematic and manipulability analyses are presented.
