Wearable Haptics

Yuichi Kurita,    Institute of Engineering, Hiroshima University, Hiroshima, Japan

Haptic display represents a promising interface for human-computer interaction that provides users with nuanced information in virtual environments. Humans utilize tactile and haptic information to determine object properties using thousands of mechanoreceptors located in the hands. Various haptic illusions can also be created by applying vibration and/or deformation to tactile mechanoreceptors. This chapter describes the state-of-the-art in wearable haptic display devices. Improving haptic and tactile sensory capability may help to enhance motor performance. Such devices could assist workers engaged in tasks requiring high-precision ...
