Hunting Simulator

Control of a cable driven manipulator

Problem: Operators of the hunting simulator had issues with positioning the meat in the lion cage.
Solution: Providing haptic assitance to the operators joystick, allowing the operator to feel when the control system started overiding the operators input to avoid a collision with the wall.
Result: The collision ratio was significantly decreased, while the average velocity was increased.
