Enhancing Haptic experience


Contributors: Ahmad Barhout, Dr. Abdulmotaleb El Saddik.

Recent advances in man-machine interaction, telerobotics, telepresence and teleaction have shown that introducing the haptic modality to multimedia applications has the power to significantly widen their application range and to dramatically improve the user experience. Especially, the human body surface has been considered as an additional means of presenting information using vibrotactile display devices. In this context, spatial displacement of a vibrotactile stimulus can be deployed for information display. We research the spatial resolution of vibrotactile perception of different body parts, increasing the spatial resolution of vibrotactile displays,
and applications."
