Abstract

Many possible systems exist that could benefit from Haptic Interactions, the communication of forces between a user and a system. Robotic assisted rehabilitation, interactive Virtual Reality media, and Telerobotics are some examples. However, due to simplified interactions methods, high costs, and lack of application development tools, Haptic Interaction with Virtual Reality has not reached its full potential. As a solution towards these problems, the team created a development platform Haptic Interaction System, capable of supplying Haptic Interactions between a user and hosted simulated environment and objects, along with the tools to enhance the system and develop applications based on Haptic Interactions.
