Haptically enabled virtual reality systems facilitate rapid and low cost testing for process design, training practices and ergonomic analysis in many manufacturing industries, particularly automotive and aerospace. In this work we design a validation framework to validate the dynamic forces displayed by haptic display devices using a robot arm equipped with a force sensor. The validation framework is completely autonomous to ensure unbiased characterization. Measured force magnitude and the direction of the sensed force vector are the main criteria used in this work.
