Social Robots and Virtual Humans as Assistive Tools for Improving Our Quality of Life
In the existed studies, interaction system involving force and touch feedback, have been scarely suggested any research. Therefore, we focus on touch and force-feedback activities in interaction with real human. In this paper, we propose the interaction system which combines an immersive virtual environment with human-scale haptic interface. And we implement <i>reactive virtual human</i> that user can visual-and force feedback. With the implemeted system, we developed <i>Virtual Catch Ball</i> system. Through this experience, we confirmed that our system have the potential to succeed for a novel communication channel. We desire that our approach can be utilized in creating a more natural and intuitive interaction.
