Dual Haptic and XR Technologies

Overview

This session showcases the efficacy of dual haptic and and XR technologies for several potential applications. We combine hands on work with a set of overview lectures in order to teach participants about the basics of haptic interactions and of simple tools they can use to get started.

The full tutorial will present haptics to new users to be able to incorporate in to robotic, XR or other applications. The lecture series will give participants an overview of the basic and the cutting edge in the field. 

The hand on session will then give participants a cheap and easy method to incorporate haptics into the current research projects. Students with basic programming experience should be able to walk out of this session confident in their ability to design simple haptic interactions

This tutorial is aimed at students and anyone wanting to get started with haptic technology. Come join us!

Objectives

  • To provide interested participants with the tools they need to design meaningful haptics
  • There will be presentations covering the building blocks for designing haptic interactions: haptic perception, hardware design, interaction design, and novel applications
  • The session will conclude with a hands-on session for attendees presenting Syntacts, a tool developed in the MAHI Lab to simplify the process of designing and presenting vibrotactile haptic stimuli
