Haptic interface is becoming an increasingly important component of immersive systems (multimedia). Haptics refers to the modality of touch and the sensation of shape and texture an observer feels when exploring a virtual object. Contributors to this volume represent the full range of haptics research, from system control hardware through interface design, compression and capture of data, to human factors and applications.

Get a feel for the virtual world.
Haptics, the science of virtual touch, is the latest frontier in VR interface development. Modeling tactile features such as shape, texture, and density, haptics offers extensive applications for training simulators, entertainment and gaming, museum displays, and assistive technologies for the disabled.
In this book, experts from the fields of communication, computer science, and engineering bring together the most current research in this rapidly emerging field. Topics include:
Discover the broad variety of influences and applications in this expanding field with Touch in Virtual Environments: Haptics and the Design of Interactive Systems.About the Author:
