We investigated how auditory and haptic information about the hardness of objects is integrated for the
purpose of controlling the velocity with which we strike an object. Our experimental manipulations and
data analyses considered a variety of factors that should be integrated in a theory of multisensory per-
ception: expertise of the perceiver; context (unimodal vs. multimodal); between-modalities congruence;
between-participants agreement in sensory weighting; performance.
On a trial, participants struck a virtual object with a target constant velocity and received feedback on
correctness. When the performance criterion was reached, feedback was eliminated, the auditory and/or
haptic hardness of the struck object were changed, and the effects on subsequent striking velocity and
