Engineering Haptics (16-880)

Carnegie Mellon University, Spring 2022

Handshake Robot Render

Due to Carnegie Mellon’s MS degree flexibility, I was able to take a course in the well-regarded Robotics Institute. This class blended the disciplines of dynamics, electical engineering, human biology, and programming to present the subject of haptics design. For our final project, we built a soft handshaking robot that responded to a users grasp to render a convincing handshake. See our final presentation below.
