The effect of spatial resolution is still not clear in haptic
rendering. This sketch reveals it by measuring absolute thresholds
for surface smoothness using two point-contact haptic displays
of different resolutions.
The Development of the Virtual
Human Abdomen: Algorithms and Methodologies
University of New York at Buffalo
Virtual Reality Laboratory
809 Furnas Hall
Buffalo, New York 14260 USA
Haptic simulation of an abdominal palpation examination. Featured
topics: development of real-time haptic force-displacement
algorithms and a non-invasive tissue property collection device.
Kwasaaki 212-8582 JAPAN
On-going research on a mobile telecommunication system in
which users can mutually transmit their ambient information
and can feel mentally closer to each other.
Hand-Held Torque Feedback
University of Tsukuba
Tsukuba Ibaraki 305-8573 JAPAN
Unlike conventional force displays, which have some bases
supporting reaction force, this proposed torque display requires
no base, because it uses the angular momentum transition caused
by controlled currents of three orthogonal motors.
