    This in-traffic, field study examined the merit of using a car seat instrumented with tactile stimulation elements (tactors) to communicate directional information to a driver. A car seat fitted with an 8 times 8 matrix of tactors embedded in the seat pan was used to code eight different directions (the four cardinal and four oblique directions). With this seat mounted in a car, a field study was ... View full abstract»

    For the perception of the hardness of compliant materials, several cues are available. In this paper, the relative roles of force/displacement and surface deformation cues are investigated. We have measured discrimination thresholds with silicone rubber stimuli of differing thickness and compliance. Also, the influence of the finger span is assessed. When compliance is expressed as the Young's mod... View full abstract»

  • Designing for Feel: Contrasts between Human and Automated Parametric Capture of Knob Physics

    We examine a crucial aspect of a tool intended to support designing for feel: the ability of an objective physical-model identification method to capture perceptually relevant parameters, relative to human identification performance. The feel of manual controls, such as knobs, sliders, and buttons, becomes critical when these controls are used in certain settings. Appropriate feel enables designer... View full abstract»

  • Fingerpad Skin Stretch Increases the Perception of Virtual Friction

    Publication Year: 2009, Page(s):212 - 223

    This research focuses on the relative importance of fingerpad skin stretch on the perception of friction. It is hypothesized that the perceived magnitude of friction rendered by traditional force feedback can be increased through the addition of fingertip skin stretch. Perceptual data are presented from two separate tests performed on nine male subjects. The first experiment determines the percept... View full abstract»

    Haptic cues may be able to assist an individual who is engaged in a manual control task, freeing visual and auditory attention for other mental tasks. We describe an experiment in which subjects attempted to step at a consistent pace on a stair climber exercise machine which was modified for haptic cuing through the legs. Subjects' visual attention was engaged by a video game. Five different hapti... View full abstract»

  • Cross-Modal Transfer in Visual and Haptic Face Recognition

    Publication Year: 2009, Page(s):236 - 240

    We report four psychophysical experiments investigating cross-modal transfer in visual and haptic face recognition. We found surprisingly good haptic performance and cross-modal transfer for both modalities. Interestingly, transfer was asymmetric depending on which modality was learned first. These findings are discussed in relation to haptic object processing and face processing. View full abstract»
