Industrial applications of haptic feedback systems that add dexterity to telemanipulators have been limited due to their complexity, low reliability, and high cost. A promising and attractive alternative technology for industry is vibrotactile feedback. These systems are simple and can be added at low cost to existing telerobotic systems to provide robust(More)
Many applications can be imagined for a system that processes sensory information collected during telemanipulation tasks in order to automatically identify properties of the remote environment. These applications include generating model-based simulations for training operators in critical procedures and improving real-time performance in unstructured(More)
The design of a four degree-of-freedom, force-reflecting manipulandum for manual interaction with virtual environments is presented. The device emulates a handtool which the operator can use to explore und manipulate virtual objects. The performance of the device, its ability to generate a broad range of impedances, is determined by a variety of factors(More)

A set of experiments was conducted to investigate the relationship of environment damping to performance of a Fitts one-shot tapping task, and especially the relationship of environment damping to the haptic perception of target position. In the experiments, subjects were asked to locate a narrow target region that had a different level of viscous damping(More)
