    The current study addresses the well-known “figure/ground” problem in human perception, a fundamental topic that has received surprisingly little attention from touch scientists to date. Our approach is grounded in, and directly guided by, current knowledge concerning the nature of haptic processing. Given inherent figure/ground ambiguity in natural scenes and limited sensory inputs ... View full abstract»

    This paper presents the design and characteristics of a five-fingered haptic interface robot named HIRO III. The aim of the development of HIRO III is to provide a high-precision three-directional force at the five human fingertips. HIRO III consists of a 15-degrees-of-freedom (DOF) haptic hand, a 6-DOF interface arm, and a control system. The haptic interface, which consists of a robot arm and ha... View full abstract»

    This paper considers moments due to friction forces on the human fingertip. A computational technique called the friction moment arc method is presented. The method computes the static and/or dynamic friction moment independent of a friction force calculation. In addition, a new finger holder to display friction moment is presented. This device incorporates a small brushless motor and disk, and co... View full abstract»

  • Physics-Based Haptic Simulation of Bone Machining

    Publication Year: 2011, Page(s):39 - 50

    We present a physics-based training simulator for bone machining. Based on experimental studies, the energy required to remove a unit volume of bone is a constant for every particular bone material. We use this physical principle to obtain the forces required to remove bone material with a milling tool rotating at high speed. The rotating blades of the tool are modeled as a set of small cutting el... View full abstract»

    This review paper discusses the role of haptics within virtual medical training applications, particularly, where it can be used to aid a practitioner to learn and practice a task. The review summarizes aspects to be considered in the deployment of haptics technologies in medical training. First, both force/torque and tactile feedback hardware solutions that are currently produced commercially and... View full abstract»

  • Haptic Recognition of Emotions in Raised-Line Drawings by Congenitally Blind and Sighted Adults

    15 sighted and 15 congenitally blind adults were to classify raised-line pictures of emotional faces through haptics. Whereas accuracy did not vary significantly between the two groups, the blind adults were faster at the task. These results suggest that raised-line pictures of emotional faces are intelligible to blind adults. View full abstract»
