    The compliance of a material can be conveyed through mechanical interactions in a virtual environment and perceived through both visual and haptic cues. We investigated this basic aspect of perception. In two experiments, subjects performed compliance discriminations, and the mean perceptual estimate (PSE) and the perceptual standard deviation (proportional to JND) were derived from psychophysical...

    This paper describes a method for creating virtual textures without force feedback by using a simple motion sensor and a single vibrotactile actuator. It is based on wavetable synthesis driven by the user's hand movements. The output of the synthesis is rendered with the tactile actuator attached in a hand-held box together with the motion sensor. The method provides a solution for creating tangib... View full abstract»

    Item individuation, i.e., how we decide which parts belong to one object and which to another, is an important aspect of haptic perception and may be important for design of interfaces in which different buttons have to be distinguished. We daily hold several objects in our hand. Somehow, we decide that we are holding several small objects instead of one large object. We aim to provide insight int... View full abstract»

    In this paper, three results are presented concerning certain computational/control aspects, crucial for the proper behavior of haptic devices. The first one is a novel technique for a real-time simulation of virtual environments, which is able to preserve the energetic behavior of the simulated physical system and to avoid undesired effects related to unstable behaviors of the haptic device. The ... View full abstract»

  • The Effect of Augmented Feedback on Grasp Force in Laparoscopic Grasp Control

    Little is known about the influence of augmented feedback, on laparoscopic grasp control. To gain more knowledge on the influence of this on the learning curve, two experiments were conducted. In the first experiment, four groups learned a single-handed laparoscopic lifting task. Three groups received augmented feedback (visual, haptic, or a combination of feedback modes) on slip and excessive pin... View full abstract»

  • A model for sharing haptic interaction

    In this paper, we present new methods for sharing haptic interactions with other persons when touching real-world objects. Unlike the previous approaches, our system does not rely on a virtual model of the object being explored or the integration of visual/auditory modalities to augment the user's perception. We developed a prototype system that makes it possible to capture active haptic interacti... View full abstract»

  • Design of a Fingertip-Mounted Tactile Display with Tangential Skin Displacement Feedback

    Application of tangential skin displacement at the fingertip has been shown to be effective in communicating direction and has potential for several applications. We have developed a portable, fingertip-mounted tactile display capable of displacing and stretching the skin of the fingerpad, using a 7 mm hemispherical tactor. In vivo tests of fingerpad skin stiffness were performed to determine the ... View full abstract»
