Fredrik Ryden in IEEE Potentials Student Magazine

The recent issue of IEEE Potentials features an excellent article written by UW EE PhD student, Fredrik Ryden. The article titled, "Tech to the Future: Making a "Kinection" with Haptic Interaction" describes how Microsoft Kinect's RGB-D camera has "opened new opportunities for applications that previously used a combination of regular video cameras and expensive cameras." By developing a novel haptic rendering algorithm, Ryden and members of the Biorobotics Lab have been able to demonstrate the possibility for using the Kinect in telerobotic applications such as robotic surgery.
