Abstract/Description: A haptic interface is a device that accepts as input the motion or force of a human operator, and outputs force or motion to the operator based on a computer simulated (virtual) environment. This thesis describes the design and construction of a one D.O.F haptic interface. The purpose of the interface would be to study virtual reality simulations, time delay in telerobotics communication, and virtual surface stability. Three designswere considered to determine the best choice. The design criteria included specificationssuch as low system inertia, imperceptible backlash, high dynamic range, and user comfort. The detailed parts drawings of the design selected were completed using the Solidworks Computer Aided Drawing (CAD) package. The parts were machined and assembled in-house and virtual environments were developed to test the effectiveness of the haptic
