Minimally invasive surgery procedures are getting common in surgical practice; however the new interventional procedure requires different skills compared to the conventional surgical techniques. The need for training process is very important in order to successfully and safely execute a surgical procedure. Computer-based simulators, with appropriate(More)
This paper presents two applications developed for a novel multimodal device called haptic desktop system (HDS). The HDS is an integrated system which merges haptic functionalities and video display terminal (VBT) systems into one. It has been designed to provide visual and haptic co-located perceptual information. The first application is the integration(More)
The present paper describes the conceptual and technical design of a new multimodal device named Haptic Desktop System (HDS), which can assist the user in designing/sketching tasks and act as a virtual guide through its force feedback capabilities. The Haptic Desktop System fully integrates proprioceptive, visual, audio and haptic functionalities, into a(More)
The present paper describes the conceptual and technical design of a new multimodal device named Haptic Desktop System (HDS). Haptic Desktop System is an integrated system, which merges haptic functionalities, and VDT systems into one. Specific care has been given to HDS design for enhancing and improving human-computer interaction from the following points(More)
As computing gets embedded into our everyday lives and moves from PCs to wide varieties of devices, we need new and flexible ways to interact with technology. Recently, the appearance of multimodal systems has been recognized to offer richer user experiences by combining different natural input modes, i.e., speech, touch, pen, hand gestures, etc.. in a(More)
Minimally invasive surgery procedures are getting common in surgical practice; however this new interventional procedure requires a training process in order to be successful and safe. Computer-based simulators, with haptic feedback, can be an efficient method for facilitating the education and training process reducing costs of education and providing(More)
