Development of a Wearable Vibrotactile Feedback Suit for Accelerated Human Motor Learning

  title={Development of a Wearable Vibrotactile Feedback Suit for Accelerated Human Motor Learning},
  author={Jeff Lieberman and Cynthia Breazeal},
  journal={Proceedings 2007 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation},
When a human learns a new motor skill from a teacher, they learn using multiple channels: They receive high level information aurally about the skill, visual information about how another performs the skill, and at times, tactile information, from a teacher's physical guidance of the student. This research proposes a novel approach, the application of this tactile feedback through a robotic wearable system, while a student tries to learn from a teacher. Initial tests on a 5-DOF robotic suit… CONTINUE READING
