Paper Abstract

Anthropomorphic exoskeletal systems with full-force feedback are desired for intuitive telemanipulation. Current dexterous force- reflecting hand masters are fundamentally limited by available force actuators. Multiple-degree-of-freedom dexterous exoskeletal systems are especially sensitive to mass, volume, force, velocity, and geometric constraints. This project discusses desired operational parameters and targets for ideal dexterous- force feedback actuation. New resistive and active actuators, using Terfenol-D magnetostrictive driven elements, are proposed. Simple resistive and active magnetostrictive concepts, prototypes, and devices are demonstrated and evaluated.
