Descrizione

Abstract - Haptic technology aims at creating the sensation of touching virtual objects. By way of analogy, computer graphics aims at artificially creating the sensation of seeing objects. I will describe the development of techniques that make it possible to create haptic simulations using methods which are surprisingly distinct from those attempting to naïvely replicate the physics of mechanical contact, something which is exceedingly difficult to achieve with electromechanical devices. These techniques help the progress toward the development of a computational theory of haptic perception. We consider the information that is available to recover the properties of a touched object and deduce the problems that must be solved by the brain to recover such object attributes as their shape. Some applications will be mentioned.
