The Applied Dexterity booth at ICRA 2013 Karlsruhe was a tremendous success! The highlight of the show was a spontaneous collaboration with Force Dimension connecting the Sigma.7 haptic interface to the Raven II surgical system.
It was decided on Tuesday that we should try the Sigma.7 as a master,. Tuesday night we wrote the necessary code while sitting outside at the AlteBank Biergarten, and debugged with a little help from the Force Dimension engineers. Wednesday was a complete success and a great demonstration of both devices capabilities, and the power of open-source software!
