Transcript of Haptics
Free motion of operator when there is no contact
Continuous nature of the physical dynamics and the discrete nature of the computer control
Lederman and Klatzky, 1987
generate the sense of virtual touch in the form of:
force feedback : receptors in the joints like weight, motion
tactile feedback : sensors in the skin like temperature, texture
Haptic Device Design
"...technology of experiencing
and creating touch sensations in human operators."
operator applies the force and constrain the operator`s position to match the appropriate deflection of a simulated object in a virtual world
the force is applied as a vector to the position of the operator according to computed behavior of the simulated object
Allow us to derive device requirements!
Different movements for each
What is Tactile Display?
Actuation and Transmission
Used to convey force, contact and shape info to skin, mainly fingertips
Specific Pupose: Display of contact events:
location, slip/shear, texture, shape
1."relating to sense of touch"
2."perceptible by touch"
for high-fidelity haptic sensations
desirable mechanism attributes for open-loop force control
low inertia, high stiffness & suitable kinematic
- weight minimized
- Kinematic singularities &
high transmission ratios must be avoided
Most common way to provide tactile feedback using:
The Phantom Omni device
from SensAble Technologies
-small voice-coil motors etc.
ideal haptic device: move freely & free of singular configurations
Measures of Mechanism Performance
- mechanism isotropy
- minimum force outout
Human vibration sensing range:
Up to 1kHz with a peak around 250 Hz
Sensors used to measure the state of the device
Rotary optical quadrature encoders = position sensors
quantitative performance measure
M= min W(theta)
Touching is sensed via sensors in our skin
Haptic applications require velocity measurement (damping)
velocity: numerical diff of the posn signal
or specialized hardware for time measurement
enables perception of free motion
by canceling device friction
Haptics display usually uses a 1st order
stiffness model but lacks realism.
-Higher order models
-Both simultaneously could be used
actuators are controlled to provide appropriate haptic sensations to the human operator
Kinematics : Joint angle space is converted to cartesian frame and end effector is haptic interface point(HIP) also called avatar as the virtual representation of haptic interface
- low inertia, low friction, low torque ripple & back-drivability
- usually open-loop force control (low friction & inertia)
Can be used to simulate:
: objects are represented by polygons-splines and check if HIP is inside the body, if not then force is zero!
Determining surface point
: if HIP is in the body, put this on the surface
: due to object geometry or object surface; texture or friction;
Basdogan and Srinivasan, 2002:
F=kx; x:depth of the penetration
low k : soft surface
high k: undesirable
Can also be used for sensory substitution to convey
eg. tactile back display when driving

Contact Location, Slip and Shear Display
Increases accuracy in teleoperated systems greatly
To prevent dropping objects due to positioning error: tactile array sensors to measure:
-local object geometry
Pin array,generally covered with an elastic layer
Psychophysical and perceptional experimental results for array specifications
e.g. deformation without pressure change --> lump!
OR helping visually impaired
Pins are indepedently controlled but currently not feasable!
