Abstract:
In virtual reality, augmented with tactile force feedback, the interaction with simulated
environments typically occurs through a single point of contact with the object. This is
mainly due to the complexity of the modeling and mechanical design of multi-point tactile
devices. Consider that most of the commercially available force feedback devices, such
as the Phantom by Sensable and the Omega by Force Dimension, render one contact
point only. In the real world, however, human hands typically manipulate objects through
multiple points of contacts and, driven also by the increasing number of potential ap-
plications, recently multi-point contact interaction paradigm is attracting the interest of
many researchers in academia and companies. This talk will address some of the recent
issues in multi-contact haptic interaction that involves both the model and the control
aspects of the problem.
