- The primary purpose of this research is to determine
which is more effective, kinesthetic or vibrotactile cues, when presenting
spatial informationwith haptic devices. Recent studies have
explored the use of tactile cues; however, they were confined to
a unilateral display device. Although many kinesthetic bilateral
haptic devices have been developed to provide force feedback on
an input handle, a vibrotactile stimulus has not been utilized when
presenting directional information on the input handle. This paper
attempts to adopt vibrotactile cues to design a bilateral device.
In addition, a new six degrees of freedom bilateral haptic device,
which provides a spatial sensation on the handle, is proposed. The
sphere-shaped handle is, especially, designed to be covered by several
vibrating panels. When a specific panel is activated, the user
perceives the spatial location of the vibrotactile stimulus from that
panel during the input operation. Control schemes that are based
on the phantom sensation, one of haptic illusory phenomena, are
proposed to achieve fine resolution with a limited number of tactors.
Two experiments were conducted, in an effort to compare
performance between a kinesthetic and a vibrotactile haptic device.
The results showed that the vibrotactile cue provides a better
method of perceiving the directional information as compared with
