  1. 1. Simple haptics Sketching perspectives for the design of haptic interactions

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Camille Moussette; Umeå universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; interaction design; haptics; haptic interactions; sketching; sketching in hardware; prototypes; prototyping; industrial design; human computer interaction; design research; research through desgin;

    Abstract : Historically, haptics—all different aspects of the sense of touch and its study—has developed around very technical and scientific inquiries. Despite considerable haptic research advances and the obviousness of haptics in everyday life, this modality remains mostly foreign and unfamiliar to designers. READ MORE

  2. 2. Preparing Spatial Haptics for Interaction Design

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Jonas Forsslund; KTH.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; haptics; interaction design; surgery simulation; haptik; interaktionsdesign; medicinsk simulering; kirurgi; Människa-datorinteraktion; Human-computer Interaction;

    Abstract : Spatial haptics is a fascinating technology with which users can explore and modify3D computer graphics objects with the sense of touch, but its application potentialis often misunderstood. For a large group of application designers it is still unknown,and those who are aware of it often have either too high expectations of what is technicallyachievable or believe it is too complicated to consider at all.

  3. 3. Enabling audio-haptics

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Kirsten Rassmus-Gröhn; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Synskador och blindhet; Haptiska gränssnitt - Virtual Reality;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with possible solutions to facilitate orientation, navigation and overview of non-visual interfaces and virtual environments with the help of sound in combination with force-feedback haptics. Applications with haptic force-feedback, sp... READ MORE

  4. 4. Haptics with Applications to Cranio-Maxillofacial Surgery Planning

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Pontus Olsson; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; medical image processing; haptics; haptic rendering; haptic gripper; visuo-haptic co-location; vibrotactile feedback; surgery simulation; virtual surgery planning; cranio-maxillofacial surgery; Computerized Image Processing; Datoriserad bildbehandling;

    Abstract : Virtual surgery planning systems have demonstrated great potential to help surgeons achieve a better functional and aesthetic outcome for the patient, and at the same time reduce time in the operating room resulting in considerable cost savings. However, the two-dimensional tools employed in these systems today, such as a mouse and a conventional graphical display, are difficult to use for interaction with three-dimensional anatomical images.

  5. 5. Touching the Essence of Life Haptic Virtual Proteins for Learning

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Petter Bivall; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Haptics; Educational Research; Biomolecular Education; Life Science; JND; Just Noticeable Difference; Protein-ligand Docking; Haptic docking; Visualization; Haptic Transfer Functions; Volume Data Haptics; History Dependent Transfer Function; Log file analysis; Molecular Recognition; Force Feedback; Virtual Reality; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Other information technology; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik Övrig informationsteknik;

    Abstract : This dissertation presents research in the development and use of a multi-modal visual and haptic virtual model in higher education. The model, named Chemical Force Feedback (CFF), represents molecular recognition through the example of protein-ligand docking, and enables students to simultaneously see and feel representations of the protein and ligand molecules and their force interactions.
