Haptics Technologies: Bringing Touch to Multimedia (Springer Series on Touch and Haptic Systems)

Mauricio Orozco, Mohamad Eid


The time period “haptics” refers back to the technological know-how of sensing and manipulation via contact. a number of disciplines similar to biomechanics, psychophysics, robotics, neuroscience, and software program engineering converge to aid haptics, and usually, haptic study is finished via 3 groups: the robotics group, the human laptop interface group, and the digital truth community.

This e-book isn't the same as the other e-book that has checked out haptics. The authors deal with haptics as a brand new medium instead of only a area inside one of many above components. They describe human haptic notion and interfaces and current basics in haptic rendering and modeling in digital environments. diversified software program architectures for standalone and networked haptic platforms are defined, and the authors reveal the mammoth software spectrum of this rising know-how besides its accompanying traits. the first target is to supply a entire evaluate and a pragmatic knowing of haptic applied sciences. An appreciation of the shut courting among the wide variety of disciplines that represent a haptic procedure is a key precept in the direction of having the ability to construct profitable collaborative haptic environments.

Structured as a connection with enable for quick lodging of the problems involved, this booklet is meant for researchers attracted to learning contact and strength suggestions to be used in technological multimedia platforms in machine technology, electric engineering, or different comparable disciplines. With its novel technique, it paves the way in which for exploring study traits and demanding situations in such fields as interpersonal conversation, video games, or army applications.
