Shuang Peng

I'm currently a M.S. EE student advised by Prof. Somil Bansal at SIA Lab, USC. I received my B.Eng. in Robotics from Southeast University, China. During my undergrad, I worked on haptic devices with Prof. Aiguo Song. I have also worked with Prof. David Navarro-Alarcon over a module reconfigurable robot project.

I'm broadly interested in control and safety ensurace for legged robots. I also enjoy doing hardware stuff, including design and build customized robots from scratch.

Origami Inspired Haptic Glove

This project presents the design of an origami-inspired haptic glove, which is able to provide bidirectional feedback force to the user's thumb, index finger, and ring finger. The origami mechanism connected to the user's fingertip can convert the actuator’s torque into a feedback force acting on the user's fingertip.

Torque Feedback Interface for Virtual Acupuncture Simultaion

Low friction, low inertia, and highly back-drivable torque feedback interface to provide torque feedback. The device is designed as a customized tip for the phantom haptic device, to simulate the acupuncture process where the user inserts and rotates a needle inside patient's tissue.

Quadruped Bai

This project aims to design a high-performance 12dof quadruped and cut the overall build cost by using mostly 3d-printed parts.

Haptic Hand

A wearable haptic exoskeleton with a parallel 3DOF translate mechanism in order to deliver useable feedback to the user’s fingertip. The glove contains two parts, finger module and fingertip module. Finger module is a 4DOF linkage connects the user’s fingertip and back of the hand, which covers the finger’s workspace. And provides user force feedback. Fingertip module is mounted at the end of finger module, provides limited tactile feedback. A grasp demo developed based on the chai3d framework.
