A haptic master device is a mechatronic system, part of a telemanipulation system, that acts as a force- and position interface between a human and a remote environment. These mechatronic systems are often very expensive. A significant cost factor is the electromechanical system comprising the actuators, sensors, and related electronics.
This thesis will investigate the impact of component-level choices on the performance of a haptic master device, thereby enabling more cost-effective design of these generally expensive devices.
