In two experiments, the active haptic identification of three-dimensional mathematically well-defined objects is investigated. The objects, quadric surfaces, are defined in terms of the shape index, a quantity describing the shape, and curvedness, a quantity describing overall curvature. Both shape index and curvedness are found to have a significant influence on haptic shape identification. Concave surfaces lead to a larger spread in responses than convex ones. Hyperbolic surfaces show a… CONTINUE READING
