Haptics in a Virtual Environment
The project is to create and develop haptic systems for users inside a virtual environment.
Providing the additional sense of touch through the use of room scale robots allows us to research into the usefulness of haptics in Virtual Reality (VR). The applications of successful real time haptics will allow improved immersion and training for professionals in military and surgical fields.
