Efforts are under way to develop a wearable haptic display that can impart directional information on a user's back for situation awareness. To date, two studies have been conducted aboard the NASA KC-135A reduced gravity aircraft to investigate the perception of tactile information in altered-gravity environments. This paper reports our results on perceived loudness of vibrotactile stimulation under different gravity conditions. Subjects compared seven fixed-frequency varying-amplitude… CONTINUE READING

Key Quantitative Results

  • The results from two subjects showed that the overall identification accuracy was 44% in zero-g, as compared to close to 100% in one-g from the same subjects.
