Captured Dynamics Data of 5 Mechanical Knobs, August 11, 2006 Colin Swindells and Karon E. MacLean, 36 pages

Torque models are presented for five mechanical knobs that were characterized using a custom built rotary haptic camera. Non-linear least squares fitting was used to estimate model parameters for position, velocity, and acceleration model parts. Additionally, two simulated knobs were modeled to test the accuracy of the characterization algorithm.
