The development of multi-axis force feedback joysticks enables mechanically coupled systems to be recreated by electronically coupled systems. A study of haptic force feedback systems was performed. A four-arm joint mechanism was designed and developed to enable multi-axis haptic force feedback. The joint mechanism was manufactured and preliminary validation experiments were performed. It was found that the joint mechanism accurately transmits forces proportional to the current applied to each drive motor and that the joystick mechanism developed in this thesis can be further validated and developed for specific applications of haptic force feedback.
