This project focused on developing a haptic feedback control system for a transesophageal echocardiogram probe. The project group researched current haptic technologies available today to create feasible design ideas while focusing on combining simplicity, efficiency, and reliability. A customized haptic feedback sensor system was then designed for our application and a 3D model was developed. The project group built a functional prototype using a combination of self-manufactured parts and parts from several suppliers. Test procedures were then designed and implemented to prove the prototype’s functionality.
