Course Description

Participants in this class will learn how to build, program, and control haptic devices, which are mechatronic devices that allow users to feel virtual or remote environments. In the process, participants will gain an appreciation for the capabilities and limitations of human touch, develop an intuitive connection between equations that describe physical interactions and how they feel, and gain practical interdisciplinary engineering skills related to robotics, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, bioengineering, and computer science. To participate in lab assignments (which is not strictly required to receive a Statement of Accomplishment), the participant will need to acquire/build the components of a Hapkit, and assemble and program the device. Laboratory assignments using Hapkit will give participants hands-on experience in assembling mechanical systems, making circuits, programming Arduino-based micro-controllers, and...

Participants in this class will learn how to build, program, and control haptic devices, which are mechatronic devices that allow users to feel virtual or remote environments. In the process, participants will gain an appreciation for the capabilities and limitations of human touch, develop an intuitive connection between equations that describe physical interactions and how they feel, and gain practical interdisciplinary engineering skills related to robotics, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, bioengineering, and computer science. To participate in lab assignments (which is not strictly required to receive a Statement of Accomplishment), the participant will need to acquire/build the components of a Hapkit, and assemble and program the device. Laboratory assignments using Hapkit will give participants hands-on experience in assembling mechanical systems, making circuits, programming Arduino-based micro-controllers, and testing their haptic creations. After the class, we hope that you will continue to use and modify your Hapkit, and let us know about your haptic creations. Please note that you can still participate in the online course without the Hapkit and receive a Statement of Accomplishment, but you will not be able to do most of the laboratories.

the course was excellent and I did well on quizes but because I did not have a hapkit and didn't have the time to get the parts I did not do the labs snd make the 50% cut. I am dsiappointed that I will not get a certificate of accomplishment

Actually now the course is closed. So, new people cannot do a course and see videos. Because of this I am requesting you provide the videos of this course why because I need to do a haptic device.

The course content is really good and well structured.Allison is a great teacher.She teaches the course with utmost diligence and patience.But the lack of availability of resources at my place stymies the rich visual and hands-on experience of making the Hapkit.Thanks to the whole team which came up with this course.We need more engineering courses like this.Overall,it was an enriching experience.

I am so impressed with the quality of instruction. The instructional design was top notch, the content was relevent and presented perfectly. Allison Okamura did an amazing job! My only complaint would be that the materials for the lab component are hard to get. The processor board is still on backorder from China, so I am looking into modifying a standard Uno Arduino board to complete the lab exercises.
