    Two adaptive nonlinear controllers are proposed for the coupling of haptic devices with impedance-type and admittance-type virtual environments, respectively. Rigid contacts in admittance-type environments are modeled either as a stiff spring or a constraint on the haptic device motion. Both controllers employ user position and force measurements to replace the natural dynamics of the haptic inter... View full abstract»

    In this article we present extensions of our earlier work on data-driven haptic rendering. Haptic feedback is generated directly by interpolating measured data. The selection of appropriate data dimensions is guided by the structure of the generalized Maxwell model. Material elasticity and viscosity are reproduced, including transient material effects like stress relaxation. All these properties c... View full abstract»

    Three novel interaction methods were designed for reading six-dot Braille characters from the touchscreen of a mobile device. A prototype device with a piezoelectric actuator embedded under the touchscreen was used to create tactile feedback. The three interaction methods, scan, sweep, and rhythm, enabled users to read Braille characters one at a time either by exploring the characters dot by dot ... View full abstract»

    It has been shown that humans use combined feedforward and feedback control strategies when manipulating external dynamic systems, and when exciting virtual dynamic systems at resonance, that they can tune their control parameters in response to changing natural frequencies. We present a study to determine the discrimination thresholds for the natural frequency of such resonant dynamic systems. We... View full abstract»

    A multi-element tactile feedback (MTF) system has been developed to translate the force distribution, in magnitude and position, from 3times2 sensor arrays on surgical robotic end-effectors to the fingers via 3times2 balloon tactile displays. High detection accuracies from perceptual tests (> 96%) suggest that MTF may be an effective means to improve robotic control. View full abstract»
