The term “haptics” refers to the science of sensing and manipulation through touch. Multiple disciplines such as biomechanics, psychophysics, robotics, neuroscience, and software engineering converge to support haptics, and generally, haptic research is done by three communities: the robotics community, the human computer interface community, and the virtual reality community.

This book is different from any other book that has looked at haptics. The authors treat haptics as a new medium rather than just a domain within one of the above areas. They describe human haptic perception and interfaces and present fundamentals in haptic rendering and modeling in virtual environments. Diverse software architectures for standalone and networked haptic systems are explained, and the authors demonstrate the vast application spectrum of this emerging technology along with its accompanying trends. The primary objective is to provide a comprehensive overview and a practical understanding of haptic technologies. An appreciation of the close relationship between the wide range of disciplines that constitute a haptic system is a key principle towards being able to build successful collaborative haptic environments.

Structured as a reference to allow for fast accommodation of the issues concerned, this book is intended for researchers interested in studying touch and force feedback for use in technological multimedia systems in computer science, electrical engineering, or other related disciplines. With its novel approach, it paves the way for exploring research trends and challenges in such fields as interpersonal communication, games, or military applications.

Sathian also found that peripheral neural responses to gratings depend quantitatively on G and a grating temporal variable (Ft) [63]. The quality of roughness has also been researched by extending the spectrum from very fine to very coarse textures [169]. The perception of fine textures is largely attributed to vibrations set up by the relative movement of the skin and the stimulus, whereas coarse textures are perceived mainly based on their geometric properties (when temperature, hardness, etc.

Iteration one more collision detection between the proxy path and adjacent surfcaces 5.5.2 Local Neighbor Search A local neighborhood search (LNS) can help reduce the number of collision detections by sacrificing more memory storage [168]. In the LNS method, a virtual object is considered as consisting of primitives such as vertices, edges, and polygons. Each primitive includes both its own geometric information as well as the information of neighboring primitives. For instance, when considering

Exploration 3 1.2.4 What Does the Sense of Touch Do for Us? Robles de la Torre [309] states that losing the sense of touch has catastrophic effects such as impairment of hand dexterity, loss of limb position perception, and the inability to walk, just to name a few. Every day we use human–computer interfaces to interact, communicate, or perform various tasks, e.g., sending e-mails, downloading a video, controlling a process in an industrial plant. It seems that audio and visual feedback is

perform the following: – Retrieve the base state Si, where Si was the state of the system T milliseconds ago. – Perform all the operations stored in the operations list between the time of Si and the current time by applying them to Si according to their chronological order indicated by t . Each time an operation is applied, the new state replaces the old one in the state list. Safety The haptic device should not cause any harm to the user. A C-HAVE application can become unsafe if the haptic
