Distance perception by hitting objects with a handheld stick is an important cue for people with visual impairments who use a white cane in daily life. In a previous paper, we found that adding vibration to the thumb side of the cane shortened the perceived collision distance more than adding vibration to the little-finger side, which partly agrees with our hypothetical model. In this paper, we conducted a similar experiment, changing the real distance between the palm and the object to explore… CONTINUE READING
