ProtoHaptic is an interactive haptic prototyping application which supports SensAble haptic devices.
The program is built upon the existing OpenHaptics API and facilitates the interactive construction and manipulation of a three dimensional environment   that has both graphics & haptics integrated in to it.

Primitive objects may be added and positioned in the scene and various familiar transformations such as scaling and rotation applied to them. In addition to the usual geometric operations the editor provides the ability to change the haptic properties of the scene such as the stiffness of an object, or the lateral friction produced by a surface.

It is intended that the final product will provide a user friendly alternative to programming, for the purposes of rapidly prototyping a simple haptic environment.  Visit http://protohaptic.googlecode.com for more information. 

Features:

  • Primitive Objects: Cube, Sphere, Cylinder, Triangle, Torus.
  • Transformations: Translation, Scaling, Rotation and other object specific transformations.
  • Real time editing of haptic properties: Stiffness, Static Friction, Dynamic Friction and Damping.
  • Rigid body dynamics and collision detection for creating dynamic haptic scenes
  • Export code for created scenes: C Code using OpenGL API, C++ Code using AbstractModel API
  • Import code to create scene: C++ Code using AbstractModel API, C++ Code using GHOST API
