Low-Cost Simulators for Skill Development
AMMACHI Labs has made pioneering contributions in the area of haptic systems for motor skill training and skill assessment in India.
Haptic technology as a modality takes advantage of the sense of human touch by applying forces and vibrations to provide real life-like experience to the user. While haptic feedback has been typically used in sophisticated surgical simulators and other expensive high-end applications, AMMACHI Labs has chosen “high social impact” as a factor that guides our application of this technology.
Our Work in Haptics
With this vision, we have made pioneering contributions in the area of haptic systems for skill assessment in India and guidance for applications such as vocational education and training, physical rehabilitation, and medical simulation. Specific research areas include haptic rendering, haptic devices, haptic guidance and shared control schemes for haptic simulation.
