Haptic Subdivision: An Approach to Defining Level-of-Detail in Haptic Rendering
Soft objects are often desired in applications such as virtual surgery training. Soft object simulations are computationally intensive because object deformation involves numerica...

The Role of Force Feedback in Surgery: Analysis of Blunt Dissection
Force feedback is widely assumed to enhance performance in robotic surgery, but its benefits have not yet been systematically assessed. In this study we examine the effects of for...

A Tactile Shape Display Using RC Servomotors
Tactile displays are used to convey small-scale force and shape information to the fingertip. We describe a 6 x 6 tactile shape display design that is low in cost and easily const...

Virtual Peg-in-Hole Performance Using a 6-DOF Magnetic Levitation Haptic Device: Comparison with Real Forces and with Visual Gui
We describe two experiments using three testbeds (real, virtual and vision-only) for comparison of user performance during 3-D peg-in-hole tasks. Tasks are performed using a six-d...

Understanding of Fingernail-Bone Interaction and Fingertip Hemodynamics for Fingernail Sensor Design
When the human fingertip is pressed against a surface or bent, the hemodynamic state of the fingertip is altered due to mechanical interactions between the fingernail and bone. No...
