University Project Successes

Colorado School of Mines – Triaxial Helmholtz Coils

The Triaxial Helmholtz Coil project by Samuel Osterhout from the Colorado School of Mines demonstrates and explores the physics that build the foundation of motion control technology. Our servo drives are key elements in very complex motion control systems. In the most isolated context, our products regulate current and voltage through wires based on command Colorado School of Mines – Triaxial Helmholtz Coils

Massachusetts Institute of Technology – The Flying Nimbus

One man’s trash is another man’s future self-balancing skateboard. After stumbling upon a collection of aluminum scrap around the MIT shops and visualizing a skateboard that he could actually ride, Dane Kouttron began developing the Flying Nimbus. Named after a rideable cloud from the Japanese anime series Dragon Ball Z, the Flying Nimbus is a Massachusetts Institute of Technology – The Flying Nimbus

Rice University – Haptic Paddle

Chad Rose demonstrates the haptic paddle operation to undergraduate students. When done with the right tools, hands-on learning can be the best way to help students understand the given curriculum, especially in engineering fields. Since its development in 2006, the haptic paddle has become a staple element of Rice University’s Modeling Dynamic Systems course, taught Rice University – Haptic Paddle

University of Pennsylvania – RHex

RHex is a biologically inspired hexapedal robot invented and first characterized at the dawn of the century as part of a large DARPA funded consortium. A variety of RHex platforms have been developed since that time, and our lab has been particularly active in developing new versions for studying biologically inspired locomotion, gait control, and University of Pennsylvania – RHex

Vrije Universiteit Brussel – ALTACRO

This multidisciplinary research project aims at the development and clinical testing of a step rehabilitation robot powered by compliant actuators. The ALTACRO project is a contribution to the synergy between robotics and rehabilitation. The primary goals are to improve the quality of step rehabilitation therapy both for patients and therapists and increasing the availability of Vrije Universiteit Brussel – ALTACRO
