    Weight perception has been of great interest for over three centuries. Most research has been concerned with the weight of static objects, and some illusions have been discovered. Here, we show a new illusion related to the perception of the heaviness of oscillating objects. We performed experiments that involved comparing the weight of two objects of identical physical appearance but with differe... View full abstract»

    Exploration of an object by arm movement and somatosensation is a serial process that relies on memories and expectations. The present experiments tested the hypothesis that this process involves breaking the object into component shapes (primitives). This was tested by having human subjects explore shapes composed of semicircular arcs as well as quarter circles or quarter ellipses. The subjects' ... View full abstract»

  • Haptic Processing of Facial Expressions of Emotion in 2D Raised-Line Drawings

    Participants haptically (vs. visually) classified universal facial expressions of emotion (FEEs) depicted in simple 2D raised-line displays. Experiments 1 and 2 established that haptic classification was well above chance; face-inversion effects further indicated that the upright orientation was privileged. Experiment 2 added a third condition in which the normal configuration of the upright featu... View full abstract»

  • Six-DoF Haptic Rendering of Contact Between Geometrically Complex Reduced Deformable Models

    Real-time evaluation of distributed contact forces between rigid or deformable 3D objects is a key ingredient of 6-DoF force-feedback rendering. Unfortunately, at very high temporal rates, there is often insufficient time to resolve contact between geometrically complex objects. We propose a spatially and temporally adaptive approach to approximate distributed contact forces under hard real-time c... View full abstract»

    Thermal displays have been developed to present thermal cues to the hand to facilitate object recognition in virtual environments or in teleoperated robotic systems. This review focuses on this application domain of thermal displays and considers the models developed to simulate the thermal interaction between an object and the hand as they make contact. An overview of thermal perception and the m... View full abstract»
