The overall goal of the research conducted in this paper is to develop next generation
force feedback systems by combining novel Magnetorheological (MR) fluid based systems with microstructural analysis and advanced control system design. Two MR fluid based telerobotic systems are designed, prototyped and tested with medical applications. Force feedback control is employed to replicate in the master those forces encountered in the slave. The test results show the appropriate performance of MR fluid based systems used in haptic and force feedback applications.
