Abstract

In the context of training for industrial maintenance the capturing and modeling of interaction forces are important elements that allow to characterize the skills of users. This paper describes a device that can be used for acquiring such forces for later use in the context of a training system. The device has been designed for managing the force ranges and the precision required by typical maintenance operations and it can be easily adapted to different type of tools. The paper discusses also the calibration of the device and presents a case study in which actions from different users are being captured.
