    The detectability and discriminability of virtual haptic gratings were analyzed in the frequency domain. Detection (Exp. 1) and discrimination (Exp. 2) thresholds for virtual haptic gratings were estimated using a force-feedback device that simulated sinusoidal and square-wave gratings with spatial periods from 0.2 to 38.4 mm. The detection threshold results indicated that for spatial periods up t... View full abstract»

    Available passivity-based robust stability methods for bilateral teleoperation control systems are generally conservative, as they consider an unbounded range of dynamics for the class of passive operators and environments in the complex plane. In this paper, we introduce a powerful 3D geometrical robust stability analysis method based on the notions of wave variables and scattering parameters. Th... View full abstract»

    Temporal discontinuities and delay caused by packet loss or communication latency often occur in multimodal telepresence systems. It is known that such artifacts can influence the feeling of presence [1]. However, it is largely unknown how the packet loss and communication latency affect the temporal perception of multisensory events. In this article, we simulated random packet dropouts and commun...

    It is believed that the use of haptic sensors to measure the magnitude, direction, and distribution of a force will enable a robotic hand to perform dexterous operations. Therefore, we develop a new type of finger-shaped haptic sensor using GelForce technology. GelForce is a vision-based sensor that can be used to measure the distribution of force vectors, or surface traction fields. The simple st... View full abstract»

    Participants learned through feedback to haptically classify the identity of upright versus inverted versus scrambled faces depicted in simple 2D raised-line displays. We investigated whether identity classification would make use of a configural face representation, as is evidenced for vision and 3D haptic facial displays. Upright and scrambled faces produced equivalent accuracy, and both were id... View full abstract»

    This paper addresses the question of strength perception for vibration signals used in mobile devices. Employing devices similar to standard cell phones and using pulsed vibration signals to combat adaptation effects, experiments were performed to study the effect of weight and underlying on perceived strength. Results shows that for the same measured acceleration on the device, a heavier box is p... View full abstract»

    In this study, we investigate the influence of visual feedback on haptic exploration. A haptic search task was designed in which subjects had to haptically explore a virtual display using a force-feedback device and to determine whether a target was present among distractor items. Although the target was recognizable only haptically, visual feedback of finger position or possible target positions ... View full abstract»
